Transactional Email Service Gives Retarus a Leg Up on the Competition
Retarus, a managed service cloud-based email security platform, is a growing company to watch out for. Since its initiation in 1992, it has quickly expanded its services and global infrastructure to North America, Europe, and APAC countries, owning data centers in the associated areas to process data locally in compliance with regulatory standards.
In an exclusive briefing with Info-Tech Research Group, Retarus representatives provided insight on the secure email platform’s four pillars:
- Email Security: Protection against sophisticated attacks, inbound traffic management, antivirus multi-scans, and post-delivery protection.
- Information Protection: Email encryption, data loss prevention (DLP) and email archiving mechanisms to comply with privacy regulations such as GDPR.
- Transactional Email: Certified Senders Alliance (CSA) Certified to ensure transactional and marketing emails are delivered to customers securely and reliably.
- Integration & Operation: Email continuity and API integration into security information and event management (SIEM) systems and applications for enabling intelligent threat analysis and response.
As the demand for e-commerce and email communication continues to grow, companies need a comprehensive and reliable email security platform that delivers secure inbound and outbound communications effectively and efficiently to maintain company trust and enable business operations.
Retarus offers the core features of an email security gateway: malware detection, phishing filters, sandboxing, DLP, CXO fraud detection, and encryption techniques. What sets Retaurus apart from other vendors is its transactional email service that enables sending high volumes of emails directly from business applications.
Traditionally, this is managed by the organization itself as a standalone application. Retarus incorporates the transactional email feature into its single managed email security service, simplifying an otherwise fragmented process. While most organizations have an email security gateway or platform already in place, not all will require a transactional email delivery software; this is where I strongly recommend reconsidering the inclusion of the service. Given that the need for reliable transactional email delivery will become increasingly important as businesses move to virtual platforms to provide service and deliver marketing material, I foresee it as a growing area and if anything, a necessary function to expand and maintain business operations.
Retarus Secure Email Platform is forward-thinking at a time where having an email successfully delivered can make or break business relations. Therefore, I highly encourage companies to reevaluate the implications of secure email communications in their business strategy and make it a key consideration in the evaluation of relevant vendor solutions.

In today's cybersecurity landscape, managing machine identities and digital certificates across complex, hybrid multi-cloud environments is a growing challenge. As the volume of digital certificates used to secure machines, applications, workloads, services, and devices continues to grow exponentially, organizations often struggle with a lack of visibility and manual processes, resulting in critical service outages and security vulnerabilities. AppViewX CERT+ is a next-generation automated certificate lifecycle management (CLM) solution that simplifies PKI and certificate management. It combines the best of automation, security, and insights to meet enterprise machine identity and digital trust requirements. AppViewX CERT+ features are purpose-built to address both the operational and security challenges of certificate management to, in turn, help organizations prevent application outages and security breaches. By enabling enterprise-wide crypto-agility, AppViewX CERT+ enhances machine identity trust, eliminates security gaps, promotes compliance, and supports post-quantum cryptography readiness.
In the digital realm, trust is currency. Without robust identity verification, online interactions become a breeding ground for fraud and exploitation.
In the ever-evolving landscape of SaaS Security, one company has quietly forged its path, becoming a beacon of protection for large enterprises grappling with the growing complexity of SaaS applications. This is the story of Adaptive Shield, a rising star in the SaaS Security space, whose journey from a nimble startup to a recognized industry leader is as remarkable as the solutions it offers. Founded in 2019 by cybersecurity veterans Maor Bin and Jony Shlomoff, Adaptive Shield entered the scene with a bold vision: to address the growing blind spot in the SaaS ecosystem regarding enterprise security – including the dangers deriving from misconfigured security controls, lack of management regarding human and non-human identities, interconnected apps, and the detection of threats within these business-critical apps. Recognizing the exponential adoption of SaaS and the inherent risks it posed, the company set out to build a comprehensive shield, not just for individual applications, but for the entire interconnected SaaS ecosystem.

We should start by defining what a secret is. It’s really any piece of confidential information used to authenticate access to sensitive resources. This includes passwords, API keys, encryption keys, SSH keys, and other digital credentials. Many of the organizations I talk to have an application security program with some OWASP checks in the pipeline, some SAST, but rarely SCA or DAST testing. GitGuardian believes secrets detection and remediation is crucial for maintaining security and preventing unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive information or disrupting critical systems. I agree and believe the value it can bring to an application security program is significant.
