IBM Lotus offers two products under Protector: Mail Encryption and Mail Security.
IBM Lotus Protector for Mail Encryption (LPME) offers end to end security for outbound emails. Security can be configured to encrypt all messages, just messages from certain users, or messages with certain key data (such as all emails with numbers in the xxx-xx-xxxx format, which might be Social Security Numbers). For a great discussion on LPME, see this posting on Darren Duke's blog.
