A complete military email infrastructure


Simplify message workflows

Streamlining the communication processes in military operations is crucial to achieve mission success.


Minimise deployment costs

The existing infrastructure and familiarity of Outlook reduces maintenance and training expenses.


Secure message exchanges

Advanced encryption and authentication protocols protect the exchange of confidential information.

Key benefits

Information sharing is the lifeblood of virtually every modern organisation – defence forces are no exception. However, standard corporate email and instant messaging tools do not satisfy military requirements for sending information between organisations and roles, rather than between named individuals.

IRIS Military Mail extends the familiar capabilities of the Microsoft Outlook, turning it into a Military Message Handling System (MMHS). IRIS Military Mail in conjunction with Microsoft Outlook enables incoming and outgoing messages to be handled in accordance with military procedures. Outgoing messages can be passed through a workflow that ensures the right authorisation for releasing messages. Similar incoming distribution rules may be used to ensure that messages are automatically delivered to the relevant roles for action and info.
