Messaging security is a subcategory of unified threat management (UTM) focused on securing and protecting an organization’s communication infrastructure. Communication channels can include email software, messaging apps and social network IM platforms. This extra layer of security can help secure devices and block a wider range of virus or malware attacks.
- Security stays with the message over all hops and after the message arrives at its destination
- Is fine-grained. Can be selectively applied to different portions of a message
- Can be used in conjunction with intermediaries over multiple hops
- Is independent of the application environment or transport protocol
