Email encryption software from Mimecast
Email encryption software is an essential tool for protecting your most sensitive information. As email has become the lifeblood of business communication, employees often use email to share valuable data like customer lists, intellectual property, financial data and business plans with colleagues. Email encryption software is critical to protecting that information from theft or accidental loss that could expose your organization to fines, legal trouble and loss of customer trust.
The trouble with most email encryption software: it's cumbersome. Traditional approaches like enforced server-to-server Transfer Layer Security and Public Key Infrastructure are difficult for senders and recipients alike. Many email encryption software solutions require recipients to download and run a file, and they create additional administrative burdens for senders and IT administrators. The result: senders will frequently avoid using email encryption software, putting your sensitive data at risk. To truly protect your organization, you need email encryption software that's intuitive and easy to use, yet powerful enough to keep your most valuable data assets safe.
When searching for the best email encryption software and the most secure email provider, more organizations worldwide turn to solutions from Mimecast.
