McAfee is releasing a new version of its E-Business Server data encryption software that it claims will make it easier for companies to encrypt data sent outside their networks.

E-Business Server 8.0 allows large companies to remotely manage multiple E-Business deployments from a single interface. An updated graphical user interface also simplifies configuration for smaller companies.
The software allows companies to secure communications and data transfers from network applications using 128-bit PGP encryption.
Developers can build E-Business Server encryption features into proprietary or third-party applications using E-Business Server Application Program Interfaces, or link encryption services to network scripts or batch processes that they run.
A separate E-Business Client allows users to encrypt, sign and decrypt sensitive information using a "drag and drop" interface, before sending it along to the E-Business Server.
The new product will make it easier for companies to comply with regulations governing data security, McAfee said.
McAfee E-Business Server 8.0 is already available.
