Technical Reference

<< back to Introduction

Technical Summary: ZSentry App is an application that uses SSL HTTP service to communicate securely between a web browser and ZSentry, presenting to the user a web interface. It also offers SSL SMTP send connectors. There is no setup, no plugin, no download, no requirements on any existing plugins, and no installation. Users may customize operation for default use (Dashboard in ZSentry App) and, if allowed by the organization's administrator, also per-message (Task Codes).

ZSentry App Benefits:
  • Web browsers cannot send email directly, but with ZSentry App they can send email, attachments, and it's secure.
  • No setup.
  • Provides ZSentry account management functions.
  • Works with Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Linux, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.
  • Access security includes 128-bit server-authenticated SSL with anti-spoofing protection, two-factor strong (cryptographic) user authentication, hardened login to prevent dictionary and brute force attacks, and no username / password lists.
  • Uses ZSentry "no-target" technology that eliminates the online copy and storage of passwords and keys, thus eliminating major risk factors in protecting servers and clients against breaches due to penetration attacks, which is specially useful for Cloud apps.
  • Offers bi-directional SSL/HTTP (HTTPS) communication and send connectors for SSL/SMTP (SMTPS), standards-based and compatible with most office & server applications.
  • Can process, send and read ZSentry messages, securely connecting third-party clients and servers.
