Google has enhanced the management capabilities of its hosted Postini e-mail security system.

In a Google blog, Adam Swidler, product marketing manager for Postini, said the enhancements would make corporate e-mail communications more secure, compliant and productive.

The new features, at no extra cost, include content-based policy for inbound and outbound e-mail traffic for more protection of sensitive data, such as credit card and social security numbers.

There is also the ability to create advanced policy rules based on content patterns, and apply a variety of dispositions including logging, routing to reviewer queue, bounce and encrypt using Postini Encryption Services.

Added to these is new granular content inspection capabilities for messages and attachments, and e-mail security advancements for faster detection and protection from viruses and spam - including early detection of zero hour threats.
