Email encryption is used to ensure that only the intended recipient is able to access the email and any attachments. Traditionally, deploying email encryption services has been complex and cumbersome. In addition, use of email encryption requires the sender and recipient to exchange their encryption keys prior to sending and receiving emails. Both of these factors severely limit the usefulness and adoption of secure practices for exchanging email. In the face of complexity, many users decide to bypass their organizations’ policies, potentially exposing sensitive and confidential data.
Our partner, Barracuda Networks offers simple yet secure email encryption. Email encryption is available as a feature in both the Barracuda Email Security Gateway (hardware appliance) and the Barracuda Email Security Service (cloud-based). A cloud-based approach to email encryption ensures that keys are stored centrally. Key management happens automatically without any added overhead for either the users or administrators.
