Trusted Mail System™ (TMS)
Enabling the Secure, Policy-Enforced Exchange of Email and Attachments Between Networks
Secure information sharing and highly efficient cross-agency collaboration are primary drivers for common IT architectures and infrastructure throughout the Department of Defense, intelligence communities, and civilian agencies today. There is also an overwhelming need for cost reductions and increased productivity. Studies show that users spend an average of 28% of their work time on email.1 For those with multiple work-related email accounts, on different networks at varying sensitivity levels, that number can increase significantly.
Trusted Mail System™ (TMS) is a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) highly secure solution that enables the policy-enforced exchange of emails and attachments between users on different networks eliminating the need to switch between email systems at multiple levels. TMS provides a ‘single inbox’ that consolidates email residing on multiple networks, at the highest level, making it less likely that important and mission-sensitive email communications are overlooked. Users are able to read, forward, and respond to any email message that they receive regardless of the destination security level, but any emails generated will originate from the security level at which the consolidation resides (normally the highest security level).
TMS leverages the widely deployed, accredited and Unified Cross Domain Management Office (UCDMO) Baseline listed Trusted Gateway System™ (TGS) as the Protection Level 4 (PL4) cross domain guard component. The guard ensures that malicious data is not transferred between networks and that sensitive data is not inadvertently or intentionally leaked.
