Keon will not require the deployment of any client software beyond the Outlook mail client, claimed Kevin LeBlanc, product marketing manager for RSA Keon. User configuration can also be done automatically, meaning that users will not have to manage preferences and certificates on their own.
Administrators will be able to create policies that automatically assign users certificates for signing and encrypting e-mail, cutting down on the amount of user intervention required to protect documents. Buttons can also be installed on user's Outlook toolbars to allow for one-click encryption.
The updated Keon will allow users to publish their certificates to Microsoft's Exchange Server Global Address List so that encrypted e-mail can be passed among users who have had no previous interaction.
