N-able has added Private Portal, an additional layer of email security, to N-able Mail Assure in order to help safeguard crucial business data. 

Based on the policies set up by the user or company, Private Portal, which is free with Mail Assure, notifies recipients when they receive an email with business-critical information. 

Mike Adler, chief technology and product officer at N-able “This free, easy-to-use feature enhancement of our Mail Assure product makes new capabilities available for our partners while extending the bubble of protection to cover mail that is sent beyond protected devices. 

Email is a huge communication channel. The approximate number of business and consumer emails sent and received per day exceeds an astounding 319 billion, and it continues to be one of the top attack vectors for cybercriminals. If sensitive business data got in the hands of the wrong person, it could have serious consequences—the best steps to take to reduce this threat is to be proactive and work smarter, not harder, by having the right tools in place.” 

Recipients can view and respond to the private emails in the Private Portal by clicking the link provided in the notification. 

The closed web-mail system can then be used by end users, who are a common source of vulnerability for MSPs. There, emails will be automatically deleted after 30 days, providing a crucial layer of defense against attackers searching inbox histories for crucial data. 

The recent significant release for Mail Assure includes more than just the Private Portal. Another new integration being introduced is one with the Splunk platform, which enables users to instantly send message audit data to that platform in order to create a dedicated integration of insights from that data into the larger SIEM processes. 

Users of the Mail Assure Private Portal can encrypt emails using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)-256 at rest and the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol standard while they are in transit. Users can create their own secure email policies, including the recipients of those policies, the rules for filtering messages, and the types of content those policies will affect. Users can access a “Log Search” page for emails stored in the Private Portal, as well as an “Audit log” where they can see every message’s path in detail, giving them visibility into every message kept in the Private Portal.
