Product Migration Options

The IEA product line has been discontinued. This includes the following software features: Large Attachment Handling, Secure Mailbox (WebSafe / Message Center), and PKI support.

There is no replacement for the IEA and its associated features available from Cisco.
Customers who are using push encryption to send secure messages have the option of migrating to the Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES). In this case, the keys for secure messages will be stored in the cloud-based CRES service as opposed to being stored on-premises in a local key-store. Cisco is investing in the roadmap for CRES.

Additionally, Totemo AG has licensed Cisco’s PXE technology which is included in Totemo, AG’s TrustMail® Secure Messaging Gateway product. Totemo’s product line-up includes solutions for secure email communication, secure file transfer and secure mobile messaging. Cisco’s customers who wish to evaluate Totemo’s product offerings are advised to contact Totemo (www.totemo.net) to find a match for their secure messaging needs beyond the features offered by CRES.
