SAN MATEO, Calif. and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Laszlo Systems, developer of OpenLaszlo, the leading advanced open source platform for building and deploying Ajax applications, and Goodmail Systems, creator of the CertifiedEmail system for trusted email, today announced that Laszlo Mail will support the recognition and presentation of CertifiedEmail messages. Offered for license to businesses and communications service providers, Laszlo Mail delivers the functionality and responsiveness of desktop email without requiring any client software installation. Now with CertifiedEmail, Laszlo Mail will have the added benefit of protecting users from phishing and other forms of email-based fraud.
"In order to remain competitive, service providers need to offer communications experiences that are engaging and guarantee the best online interaction possible," said Kent Libbey, chief marketing officer, Laszlo Systems. "We're pleased about today's announcement as we're able to combine one of the industry's most robust Web mail offerings with the trusted security of CertifiedEmail, resulting in a complete, end-to-end product that any business or ISP can easily deploy and feel confident about."
CertifiedEmail is Goodmail's service for restoring trust to email communications among volume email senders and their consumer recipients. Accredited senders with the best email practices can choose to send their marketing and transactional messages via CertifiedEmail, which imprints a cryptographically-secure token on outgoing email messages and lets participating ISPs and mailbox providers like AOL and Yahoo! assure delivery of those messages to the server-level inbox with all links and images intact. Many ISPs today routinely disable links and images as a security precaution against phishing and other forms of email-based fraud.
"The Laszlo Mail application module will recognize incoming CertifiedEmail messages and display them with the unique trust icon that tells consumers messages are safe to read and act upon while allowing mail providers to safely enable links and images automatically for accredited senders," said Ken Hirschman, vice president of business development for Goodmail Systems. "By deploying Laszlo Mail with CertifiedEmail capability, mail providers will be able to give their customers all the rich client email functionality they expect in a system that also provides a measure of security against fraud and phishing."
Laszlo Mail is built on the open source platform, OpenLaszlo, and is the first in the company's suite of breakthrough Digital Life applications. With a high-polish interface, Laszlo Mail incorporates rich Internet functionality, allowing users to easily sort, drag-and-drop, and keep track of contacts all on one easy-to-use screen. Laszlo Mail is also customizable to support service provider feature and brand requirements, including carrier-grade scalability and reliability. In addition, businesses and ISPs can reach all popular Web browsers across Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix desktops without requiring any client software installation.
By matching CertifiedEmail-enabled Laszlo Mail with CertifiedEmail-capable messaging engine and anti-spam products, such as Bizanga Intelligent Message Processor, Cloudmark Authority and OmniTI Ecelerity, mail service providers can implement a complete trusted email system with minimal integration effort.
