					Has anybody asked you about having your mail encrypted? What is it for?
You might have answered, "Email Encryption? Don't the paranoid people do
that?" Most of the time, other people would have the same answer and it
may be even true. True if the case is you are only sending your latest
high school reunion pictures to a number of your office mates and the
whole family. Encrypting your mails would be overkill; however, more
often than not, people also use mails for business and personal reasons
to send banking information, secret passwords, and others without really
knowing the risks involved.

In most cases, almost all messages are sent in plain text over the web
without having any kind of encryption, although an electronic mail
protocol having the capability of supporting encryption does not have any
dependable measure to assure or enforce end-to-end encryption. Even mail
services like Gmail, which supports encryption between their service and
your personal computer, cannot guarantee that your mail will be sent
securely between their email server and the email server of your
recipient. Most of the time this happens when the email server of your
recipient does not offer encryption support so Gmail will be forced to
transmit your email in plain text instead. The same is essentially
applicable to all personal and corporate mail environments.

If you use email encryption solutions, then you will have powerful
cryptography techniques to guarantee that your emails are both kept and
transmitted securely. This will make sure that only you and your email
recipients will be the only ones to have the capability to decrypt your
message data. You also have the ability to control the number of views
per email, set limited start and stop time for email message viewing, set
expiration dates for the emails, and also have revoke email viewing

With an email encryption solution for your company, you will be able to
have maximum email security. It is easy to use as it does not require you
to install any software. You can receive, send, forward, and reply secure
email messages without dealing with any new email interface or special
steps to be done. Apart from that, there are companies that provide
solutions that guard you against phishing. This will basically allow
email recipients to recognize you as a trusted source. With an encryption
solution for your emails, you will have no problems sending large files
since it guarantees that the files it is sending are safe for the
receiving party.

solutions. This will ultimately give you a secured email communication
channel for you and your associates without the hassles of learning a new
program or interface just to send an email. Businesses will have another
reason to acquire such solutions since more of the companies providing
encryption of email solutions offer them at affordable prices.

levels. Go online and find a company today to help you have a secured
