We strongly recommend that all customers currently using version 13.2.20349.1331 update to the currently available Fast Channel version 13.2.21069.1155. This update fixes a bug that can have a negative effect on the stability of the system under certain circumstances. As usual, you can find all the necessary information about the update in our release notes: […]
Version 13.1 contains a total of 18 new functions and function enhancements: Among other things, the reputation filter has again been extended with new checks. Reputation Filter is a powerful system that protects against phishing emails and CEO fraud attacks independent of pattern files and is continuously refined.
The new NoSpamProxy version offers numerous enhancements and convenience functions for administrators and users. The sophisticated URL Safeguard enables the rewriting of URLs in incoming emails and checks the URL at the time the user clicks on it to see if there are any negative estimates for the URL. In Version 13, the optional Sandbox Service provides an additional level of email security. The near- comprehensive support of the S/MIME 4.0 standard, which Net at Work is the first manufacturer worldwide to offer, as well as a multitude of improvements that further increase the security of email communication round off the new version.
The new NoSpamProxy 12.3 already offers security against EFAIL even for communication partners with a weak infrastructure. Due to the far-reaching support of the new S/MIME 4.0 standard and Authenticated Encryption, many EFAIL-like attack methods are additionally neutralised. Numerous other improvements and new features ensure increased email security and increased resilience against the weaknesses of others. In our press release you can learn more about version 12.3 of NoSpamProxy, which Net at Work will present at the security fair it-sa from October 9 – 11, 2018 in Nuremberg.
Dear NoSpamProxy customers,
since a few hours we see in customer environments that send outgoing e-mails from O365 via NoSpamProxy the error “Unable to relay”. We found that Microsoft uses a new certificate to identify all Office 365 email servers, which was issued by a GlobalSign CA rather than Microsoft’s own CA. The NoSpamProxy security check to see if the server is a valid “company e-mail server” fails and the e-mails are rejected. A new Fast Channel Version is available to fix this issue.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Your NoSpamProxy Team
NoSpamProxy 12.2 and Open Keys simplify key retrieval for email encryption
Among the most important new features of version 12.2 is the complete integration of Open Keys for easy querying and publishing of public keys. Open Keys is a product- and vendor-neutral service that aggregates many different key servers and thus represents a significant simplification for encrypted e-mail traffic. Open Keys offers users a central platform for querying and uploading public keys.
On 11th August Version 11.0.379 has been released to the public. This version is a maintainance update fixing some bugs. We recommend all customers to apply this update. The following bugs have been fixed:
As of January 1,2018, many energy suppliers have converted the solutions they use for EDI message exchange to the encrypted communication required by the EDI@Energy Directive. Afterwards a significant proportion of incoming mails could not be decrypted by NoSpamProxy and was either rejected or not delivered.
