Email encrypton added

JustWorks has added the ability for our customers to send encrypted emails.

Should you need to send secure email, for instance to the bank or other security sensitive recipient, you need only mark the email as “Confidential” in the sensitivity setting (in Outlook, or through webmail Options…).

The email will automatically generate a request to the recipient to create their own password. After they have created their password, all emails will be delivered to them as PDF documents, encrypted with their password, and attached to an email – they use the password they set to open the PDF.
There is a reply button in the PDF that allows them to send you a secure reply using a web portal.
All subsequent emails to the same recipient will use the same password. If unused for 90 days they will have to create a new password.
We can reset the password for anyone who has lost/forgotten theirs, but that will not get them access to old emails encrypted with their old password.

There is no charge for this service, and any user can send as many secure emails as they wish to as many people as they wish. Service requests for password resets and troubleshooting will be billable.

The best way to get a feel for how it works is to send yourself a Confidential email to your personal/home email address.

We hope this new feature will prove useful to your company.

New Email security from Reflexion

2fbc1856f1480bb04c0449b8eb78109dAll JustWorks customers will be moved to new email spam security services before April 30th 2016.

The old provider of these services (McAfee/MXlogic) have decided to cease providing this service, and so we are switching to Reflexion to provide the same SPAM filtering and email continuity services.

What will it cost me?

Nothing. Services remain as is, and any additional costs are carried by JustWorks, so long as you subscribe at the MANAGE service level or higher.

When will it happen?

We will let you know your exact cut-over date, which will be a weekend.

You will receive a Welcome email, and starting on the Monday the notices you receive regarding SPAM messages in your Quarantine will look a little different.

What do I have to do?

Nothing. JustWorks will handle all of the migration and transition as part of your contract services, so long as you subscribe at the MANAGE service level or higher.

You should familiarise yourself with the new web site features of the new service.

The Future of Work + Phone

As more and more people have smarter and smarter phones in their pockets, the challenge of integrating those devices in a way that allows us to manage our life and our work without having to carry multiple devices is key to making IT work.

The answer is going to be the kind of solution that VMware demonstrated today at VMworld 2012.

A “firewall” for your phone

The new Horizon for iOS app allows your business to create an isolated environment on a smartphone that your employee also uses for their personal matters. It’s like having an Internet firewall, only in this case the separation is between corporate data and personal data.

This short video shows how this kind of app is going to work:

This is just a sneak peek into the future, Horizon for iOS will be available later this year or early 2013, so don’t hold your breath just yet.

The cloud is the future

The future of IT is cloud services: accessed from anywhere, using the best device for the user in the place and at the time they find themselves… and much of the time that device is going to be a smartphone.

The key is going to be creating this kind of secure micro-environment, in which the business can set the policies it needs to protect its data, without affecting the usefulness of the device for the user.

Changing your password through Outlook Web  Access

There are times when you need  to change the domain password, that could be when you are traveling or when  working remotely. Within the network there are many ways to change the  password, but from outside the network the options are limited. Outlook Web  Access offers an option to change the password through  the web.

To change your password within your Outlook Web Access page, click on Options on the upper right (or left  side panel  for older versions), then Settings on the left and Password icon in the ribbon.

You will be asked for your current password and then your new password twice.
