After getting promoted in one of the top Business Process Outsourcing companies in the country, I was fortunate enough to be handed a blackberry mobile due to the nature of my new job. I was able to send and receive not only calls and text messages, but electronic mails as well. However, due to the security requirement of our client, I was forced to ask myself if the company network we has the proper security protocols to satisfy the clients needs. I did some research and found that some hardware and software tools are available to help fortify your emails against hackers and spam mail.
TPM, or Trusted Platform Module, is a hardware component that can securely store passwords, certificates, encryption keys and other artifacts that assist in authenticating the platform of your servers. Zimbra is another component that provides security protocols like anti-spam and secure emails, even with all those weird domain names linked to spam emails. It also has integrated anti-virus features that gives your server double security from spam as well. McAfee has been around for decades, and has evolved from a pc anti-virus software to a network security solutions that provide 24/7 safety for downloaded files and emails. It can filter out not only high risk incoming data, but complex and specific network viruses as well.
There are more network security protocols available for network users today that can cater to different needs. I believe there is not such thing as an overkill when it comes to network security, especially for those networks that provide mobile features as well.
