SafeSysMail, Hosted Email Solution for Banks

Ask any executive what they consider the most critical tools to doing business today, and most of them will put email at the top of the list.

Considering the FFIEC’s increasing focus on vendor management and cloud service providers, SafeSysMail, Safe Systems’ hosted email solution, was developed exclusively for banks and addresses the needs and FFIEC expectations specific to banks. SafeSysMail also addresses disaster recovery initiatives for email availability while reducing the costs, time and IT staff resources required for the implementations, management and maintenance of a bank’s internal email system.

With FFIEC compliance and guidance being the core of SafeSysMail, the service is SOC 2 audited and protected in secure, geographically dispersed and fully redundant datacenters. SafeSysMail also includes security features such as antivirus; multi-level SPAM protection; advanced heuristics for detecting phishing/social engineering attacks; email encryption including reporting and a bank branded encryption portal; email archiving and retention with integration into Outlook; anytime/anywhere access through Microsoft Outlook Web Access; and smartphone integration.

SafeSysMail is used by more than 5,000 bankers allowing the peace of mind and confidence that their bank’s email will be compliant, protected and available.

4 reasons why SafeSysMail warrants an Innovative Solutions Award:

1. SafeSysMail is built exclusively for banks and contractually holds itself to the same high data privacy, security, confidentiality, integrity and availability standards banks require (adhering to GLBA guidelines and documents adherence with the SOC 2 audit).

2. SafeSysMail adheres to the most recent FFIEC statement on managing cloud vendors that the vendor should have a broad and deep familiarity with the regulatory requirements of the financial industry – Safe Systems has more than 20 years’ experience offering products and services exclusively to banks.

3. SafeSysMail includes a vendor management packet addressing regulatory requirements including an independent SSAE 16/SOC 2 report, audited financials, disaster recovery testing details, and data center information.

4. The bank’s email data is physically stored and protected in fully redundant datacenters that are only in the United States and also retains and destroys information consistent with bank’s internal and FFIEC data retention policies.
