TOKYO, Japan (May 23, 2017) – Digital Arts Inc. (headquartered in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan; CEO: Toshio Dogu; “Digital Arts”; Code 2326), a leading provider of information security software, announced to make m-FILTER MailAdviser Ver.3.4 available on June 27, 2017. m-FILTER MailAdviser is a client email security solution for enterprises, government, and local municipalities, and this newest release enhances security features to prevent mistaken transmission of emails.

Enterprises and public institutions exchange huge quantities of important files on a daily basis, such as quotes and agreements, with many different external entities. Critical files are often sent as email attachments, however what if someone sends a message to the wrong person? Not only would it be considered a serious data loss incident, working under the risk of wrong transmissions can ultimately affect business productivity.

Digital Arts conducted in-depth interviews to gain insight into incidents of mistaken email transmissions by its customers. Based on analyzing the results, Digital Arts includes new and enhanced features to its m-FILTER MailAdviser to solve persisting issues through enhancing security and user operability.

Enhanced security feature: in addition to manual passwords on ZIP files, m-FILTER MailAdviser offers an option to automatically set random passwords. Random passwords are generated for each outgoing message, which means that only the recipient who received the corresponding message would be able to decrypt the attached files. This helps to prevent multiple recipients from sharing passwords, which can ultimately lead to data loss if the file is attempted to be opened by the wrong person.

Enhanced user operability: users can now switch display mode on the pop-up screen to confirm recipient email addresses. In addition to displaying entire recipient name, department, and email address, users can select to see abridged information with only nicknames and email addresses. Using the tool chip will always expand recipient information to its entirety.
