Organizations that implement the MailSlotTM will be able to establish a high level of trust with their inbound and outbound communications with employees, vendors, and others who regularly communicate with the organization. MailSlotTM will help protect the organization from further successful phishing attacks.
Messages received through the organization’s mail system will be separated into trusted and untrusted folders. Messages which are digitally signed with an Osmio VRD x.509 certificates are placed in the trusted folder for review. Those messages which are not digitally signed are placed in an untrusted folder to be reviewed carefully by the recipient or members of the organization’s information security technology team.
