Introducing IRM support in TouchDown 7.3
When connecting to Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 in ActiveSync protocol, TouchDown Version 7.3 supports viewing and creation of IRM protected messages.
Users can use IRM to protect sensitive messages from accidental or intentional leakage. When IRM is enabled, administrators can create a set of policy templates that define the protections to be applied on messages. Such policies restrict one or more of the following types of operations on messages.
- Reply All
- Edit content of messages when responding
- Modify recipients when responding
- Copy data from messages or taking screenshots
- Remove protection from messages
- Printing messages or attachments
- Sharing the message with other applications
When a user receives a message with IRM protection enabled, TouchDown will ensure that the user is not allowed to perform the operations that are forbidden in the associated template. Additionally, regardless of whether the Exchange ActiveSync policies enforce encryption or not, TouchDown will always ensure that emails protected with IRM and the associated attachments are encrypted with AES-256 encryption at rest.
When composing a new message, TouchDown provides the user with the option to protect the message with one of the IRM policy templates defined on the server.
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 SP1 supports sending and receiving IRM protected emails through mobile devices. For more information, please refer to this link.
