Recent history demonstrates that when e-mails wind up in third-party hands, the results range from mild embarrassment to theft of proprietary information and multi-billion dollar lawsuits (think Merrill Lynch). But prying eyes wonâ€™t be smiling for long, thanks to the many new Web-based systems that let subscribers track and control their e-mail â€“ preventing unauthorized viewing, copying, forwarding and printing
These systems employ timestamps, PGP and digital signatures to provide encrypted certificates that prove when email was sent and opened. In addition, some have the ability to allow users to edit or revoke recipient access to mail at anytime â€“ crucial protection for those sending private or confidential information.
â€œIndividuals, entrepreneurs and large companies risk privacy invasion, espionage, theft, and viral infection whenever they send e-mail,â€ said E-mailSecure.com founder Anthony Ellis. E-mailSecure.com is one of the latest in a string of high tech email protection and tracking services. â€œWhile billions have been spent to make the Internet better and faster, e-mail has been largely ignored. E-mail tracking and monitoring services are a reliable way to monitor, control and confirm who reads your e-mail, and what they do with it â€“ all of which can be documented with a mile-long paper trailâ€ says Ellis.
E-mailSecure.com subscribers create passwords to ensure mail is read only by intended recipients; assign usage rights; cancel or edit content and attachments after transmission; expire e-mails after a specified time period; and monitor content and attachment usage. Unlike conventional e-mail systems, which require manual confirmations, E-mailSecure lets subscribers track messages regardless of addressee follow-up. It is user-friendly, and requires no software installation.
Individuals and companies, from magazines to law firms are now catching on. They realize that these systems can increase communication efficiency and safeguard privacy and proprietary information.
â€œE-mailSecure.com not only fills in the gaps of most e-mail systems, but gives you total control over how messages are used, and provides detailed documentation and accountability,â€ said Ellis.
