CertifiedMail has announced the launch of Version 4.0 of its CertifiedMail Secure Email System. Version 4.0 features a new RSS Feed option that makes access to receiving and replying to secure email easier and quicker, regardless of whether the recipient is using a desktop computer, laptop, PDA or cell phone.
CertifiedMail offers universal mobile access to secure messaging through their salesforce.com plug-in and the addition of RSS feeds.
Version 4.0 supports a new recipient-selected delivery method that converts CertifiedMail messages and attachments into encrypted, password-protected PDF documents, as an alternative to the web-portal delivery ("pull") system. The PDF Push delivery method empowers recipients to bypass the web portal to view their secure messages directly in their email client.
Once PDF Push has been selected as the preferred delivery method, all unopened and future CertifiedMail messages are sent in secure PDF format. When received as a message in their email client, the recipient opens the secure PDF message, which automatically launches Acrobat Reader; the recipient is prompted for their password, enabling Acrobat to display the secure message along with any embedded attachments.
Secure PDF messages can be opened even if the recipient is offline, although users must be online to send a secure reply to a pushed message. To respond, recipients simply click the "Reply" button in the PDF document to open their browser and reply using the secure webmail interface.
CertifiedMail Secure Email System Version 4.0 is available as a hosted service or licensed for on-premises use. Pricing starts at $99 per seat. Additionally, CertifiedMail, via web API (application program interface), offers organizations the opportunity to build secure messaging into existing business process applications, creating secure email applications in a few lines of code.
