Encrypting email can significantly lower the chances of a hacker gaining access to the sensitive data within your emails. If they employ a combination of message-level encryption with Transport Layer Security (TLS), users can encrypt both the message and the channel used to send it to the recipient.


Traditional TLS-based systems encrypt emails and attachments during the transition process (in-motion), but they don’t keep the data encrypted on all the servers where they are stored (at-rest). Kingston Bay’s [ThreatFend] keeps all your emails protected wherever they reside.


ThreatFend makes it easy to create and enforce content policies to prevent sensitive data, such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, HIPAA data, customer lists, and other private information from being sent via email without additional security.


Email encryption is one of several data protection layer used by ThreatFend. Outbound email is scanned and filtered to prevent sensitive data from being leaked.


For encryption to be effective, you must ensure that it is used on emails that might contain sensitive or legally-protected information. This is critical for heavily-regulated industries, such as healthcare, finance, and legal organizations, which are required to secure certain categories of data.


With ThreatFend, you can easily create policies to automatically encrypt emails based on the sender, recipient, keywords, domain, and many other criteria. This provides a safe and reliable way to share sensitive information with customers and partners. It reduces potential risk of data loss, while facilitating regulatory compliance.
