Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange Server is the kind of email hosting application that often terrifies people because of its overly boring administration process. A lot of people would prefer to move Exchange stuff to off-site cloud-based facilities, especially with their increased availability. However, the one thing stopping most large corporations from depending on cloud-based email hosting is the concern of data-in-use security.
You see, an email hosting application has to protect all sensitive data such as contracts, accounting spreadsheets, and deliverables sent via mail. Some cloud migrations might not be wise when this much sensitivity is at stake, particularly because of the obstacle of privacy.
A new application will appear soon this season that will help corporations overcome the security issues involved in moving their email hosting solutions to the cloud. Vaultive, Inc. has come up with a "data-in-use" encryption solution that will protect sensitive data from infiltration and keep everything private for every user. The problems solved also include regulatory compliance, which is a big issue when running a large enterprise's email hosting. Vaultive will soon release an encryption engine that is tailored to work with Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Office 365. However, it can also supposedly mingle with a number of other applications that can be hosted in the cloud.
According to its website, Vaultive talks about “data-at-rest” encryption, meaning that its solution will encrypt your data while it’s in storage, not only when the data is in transition using 256-bit patented AES encryption. This technology allows for quick sorting of files without having to decrypt them, and keeps their integrity as they are stored in the server. The AES revolution allows for a very high-pitched security environment that will not only take corporate email hosting to the stars, but will also ensure it survives the trip.
Vaultive takes advantage of the "sort without decryption" ability to allow applications like Microsoft Office 365's antivirus and anti-malware features to work within the cloud, allowing encrypted data to be scanned without bothering its contents or decrypting it. An email send from one node will go through a proxy server, decrypt, and fly to its destination. Email hosting has never been more secure and easy!
