Email Encryption

The challenge of email compliance.

Protect your users with email encryption.

Email encryption is a business-critical technology. As your users communicate with contacts outside the organization about contracts, projects and intellectual property, email encryption secures messages to stop inadvertent or deliberate data leaks. But traditional approaches to email encryption like Public Key Infrastructure or enforced server-to-server Transport Layer Security (TLS) add additional complexity and administrative burden, compromising your ability to secure your email systems.

As a global leader in email management services, Mimecast offers easy-to-use (and deploy) solutions for email encryption and secure messaging, ensuring email encryption becomes the standard within your organization for all communication containing sensitive information.

Email encryption with Mimecast.

Mimecast solutions simplify the management of electronic mail security, archiving and continuity and include email encryption technology at several levels.

Mimecast Enterprise Information Archiving provides a single, tightly-integrated cloud platform with a unified and secure archive for storing email, files and IM conversations. This Mimecast solution supports email encryption for stored messages and retains three copies of each message, storing them in secure and geographically-dispersed data centers.

Mimecast also provides tools for email encryption on the wire, with policy-based TLS, allowing administrators to enforce TLS encryption for SMTP over the wider Internet. Additionally, important end users have control of email encryption solutions, in line with defined policies, with the ability to direct email through the Mimecast encryption platform, from within Microsoft Outlook.

Add Employee Initiated Secure Messaging to email encryption capabilities.

Mimecast Secure Messaging provides email encryption through an easy-to-use, cloud-based secure channel for sending and receiving information. With these Mimecast cloud email security solutions, sensitive information never leaves the Mimecast Secure Messaging portal, enabling users to send protected messages even when TLS encryption isn't available. Senders initiate Secure Messaging directly in Microsoft Outlook for Windows and configure controls for individual messages, while administrators configure policies directly at the email gateway, simplifying policy enforcement.

Mimecast Secure Messaging also provides:

  • Tighter protection and server-to-server email encryption by eliminating the ability of administrators to view information.
  • Intuitive message access via a secure web portal, enabling recipients to have a consistent experience on any device and to receive messages without needing to know anything about access keys or encryption methods.
  • Configurable policies that include expiration date, read receipt, forward/print restriction and access revocation.
