It's the technology that Claire Swires, the English woman who became the centre of a worldwide forwarding email scandal, would have died for. The ability to control what can be done to an email after its been sent. One Australian distributor claims they can do just that.
Recently formed Validate Technologies, has secured the distribution rights to Authentica's range of application security products. US-based Authentica has developed a software suite enabling users to set policies on what the recipient of an email can do with the document and any applications attached to that email. This includes preventing the recipient from forwarding, printing, copying, pasting, changing text, editing Word, Excel or other attachments and even setting a date for the email to be deleted.
Validate has been established to provide security products, consulting and managed security services to the channel. Headed up by Peter Worth CEO, Validate is positioning itself as a provider of infrastructure security such as firewalls and perimeter devices as well as application security including the MailRecall and PageRecall products from Authentica.
Targeting mid-to-large enterprises, Validate is on the reseller trail looking to sign a number of players over the next 12 months according to company officials.
