Email encryption is the act of securing email using encryption software in order to protect your content and data from prying eyes and invasive hackers.
Email is typically vulnerable to infiltration, as most emails are being transmitted without the use of encryption. However through the use of encryption tools you can ensure that the only people reading your messages or those who are supposed to have access.
Email encryption helps secure the transmission of sensitive information to your recipients. If you need to email any type of personal medical or financial information, legal documents or private company information, encrypting your email messages is the best way to ensure only the intended recipient is able to open the email message. Email encryption is mandatory for HIPAA and Gramm Leach Blily Act regulations.
While there are several ways to implement email encryption, our preferred method is to utilize Microsoft’s Office 365 email platform.
