Keep your email messages private.

Emails are far from private. They allow anyone between the sender and the receiver to intercept, read, and even copy or alter the contents. With Astaro email encryption, you can encase your messages in a secure package and stamp it with a tamper-proof seal. By keeping messages private, your company avoids data loss, gains the ability to send very sensitive data via email and lets users validate incoming and outgoing messages with digital signatures.

 

Descriptions & Screenshots Email Encryption

The learning cost associated with implementing email encryption products is high. With Astaro’s mail encryption, the learning costs is removed. Operating transparently at the gateway, Astaro’s system easily encrypts and decrypts messages and allows the administrator to manage all operations from a central point.

Once enabled, the mail encryption engine can be pre-loaded with PGP or S/MIME encryption keys of senders and expected recipients before deployment so the system is ready to go right away. Astaro can also “farm” keys out of messages. So that if chuck@astaro.com emails your company with his key or digital signature attached to his message (a common practice among those using encrypted email), then Astaro’s encryption system will notice this and extract his key, placing it in the system repository. Future emails to Chuck from any user of your company will be automatically encrypted, and he will decrypt it with the existing system that he uses.
