Kiteworks VP and General Manager of European Operations, Dario Perfettibile, explains why totemo customers should take advantage of the incorporation of the totemo technology, renamed the Email Protection Gateway (EPG), into the Kiteworks platform.

Kiteworks integrated its acquisition of totemo, the leading email encryption gateway used by many multinational organizations, into the Kiteworks hardened virtual appliance and the Kiteworks Private Content Network. Rebranded as the Email Protection Gateway (EPG), this proven technology creates a dedicated Private Content Network (PCN) of internal and external digital communications that ensures zero-trust private content protection and compliance of an organization’s most sensitive information.

The incorporation of totemo into Kiteworks comes with these benefits:

Unified Sensitive Content Communication Channels

Profit from simplicity and economies of scale when you integrate all your sensitive content communications into a single, hardened, compliant platform: secure email, file sharing, SFTP, managed file transfer (MFT), and web forms. Use its REST APIs to leverage secure, compliant content communications in custom apps and enterprise integrations.

Centralized Administration Across Multiple Communication Technologies

Simplify administration with a single set of roles to centrally manage user policy controls, including external parties, across all your communication channels instead of separate controls for each service. Define content-centric policies based on Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) labels and policies based on locations, domains, users, and other factors.

Consolidated and Normalized Syslogs for Compliance and Security Event Management

Enable SecOps and simplify audit preparation with a true SIEM-ready syslog. It’s unified and standardized across the platform, so analysts see the merged communication activity of individual users and specific content across all the communication channels. It collects every user or administrative action and critical system activities in a real-time stream, so you don’t miss anything.

Hybrid Single-tenant Hosting for the Highest Level of Privacy

Choose the country or countries where your Kiteworks cluster resides and deploy on VMware, Hyper-V, AWS, Azure, or Kiteworks hosted environments. Plans for adding the Email Protection Gateway to Kiteworks FedRAMP hosting, the gold standard for cloud security, are underway. And because each Kiteworks customer gets an independent, single-tenant cloud, a single attack has no chance of breaching thousands of tenants, such as what happened in the August 2020 Azure Cosmos DB incident. Only you own the keys, so only you can access the content—not vendors or authorities.

Unlimited File Size Support

Reliably handle massive file sizes, leaving users plenty of room for CAD, video, DNA sequences, and scientific datasets—and no reason for unsanctioned workarounds.

The combination of Kiteworks and totemo technology provides organizations with a powerful and comprehensive solution that meets their content management and secure file sharing needs. With just one powerful platform, organizations can manage their content, collaborate securely, and gain insight into their content usage and collaboration activities that ensures their content is secure and compliant.
