US Government Agencies and Email Security

I would not normally be referencing USA Today for an Exchange weblog, but there is an article today regarding the challenges that various US government agencies face in regards to secure email communication.

The issues outlined in the article Feds face numerous encryption schemes for securing e-mail are not limited to government agencies. They parallel what enterprises are dealing with in regards to securing email communication while maintaining accessibility.

Exchange Server 2003 and Outlook 2003 are competitive in this arena and offer various options for securing email communication, including, but not limited to, the popular S/MIME. There is growth in the area of email security and added opportunity for architects and consultants who deploy messaging solutions.

"Officials are expected, however, to embrace secure e-mail solutions in greater numbers."

Paul Robichaux of the Alabama Robichauxs, updated his authoritative book on Exchange security called Secure Messaging with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, released earlier this year, which is an excellent addition to your knowledge library if this topic applies to you... and it probably does.
