In today’s world, email encryption is no longer an option but a necessity of every organization. Internet privacy concerns are very real requiring enterprises to protect sensitive information and ensure secure collaboration and email in the cloud. Regulations demand encryption to comply with all of the privacy legislations to protect data. And of course – hacking is a big business. Data breaches are on the rise and email is the preferred channel to launch target attacks. To avoid business risks, you have to securely protect data that you do not want anyone else to have access to.
Recently, David Strom of CSO published a feature story identifying The top 5 email encryption tools: More capable, better integrated. They included a wide array of companies, all completely different, but according to David, all the same as they are all evolving. He further describes them as being more capable and better integrated because most of these vendors have expanded their products to include anti-phishing, anti-spam, and data loss prevention (DLP). These vendors have certainly expanded their focus from a silo approach of only end point encryption to a full email protection portfolio in most cases. This is but one trend that David identifies in this article. Additional trends include that partnerships have become more important and email authentication protocols are becoming more of the norm highlighting the fact that email encryption has changed significantly and that these top 5 tools are leading the way.
So here are my top 5 reasons that Voltage SecureMail ended up Strom's article, The Top 5 Email Encryption Tools:
