About Us

Privacy Shouldn’t Be Hard.
Virtru Makes it Easy.

Sharing information online should be empowering, not scary.

That’s why we founded Virtru. Personal privacy depends on all of us taking action – both the public and the businesses, governments, and institutions with whom we must share our most sensitive information. Virtru makes it easy for individuals and organizations to protect the information that they create, store, and share with customers, partners, and consumers.

Our Story

We believe that privacy is a fundamental human right, and that businesses, governments, and other institutions have a responsibility to protect sensitive content. Our award-winning privacy products make it easy for organizations to fulfill this obligation and share their data with confidence.

Virtru Co-Founder, Will Ackerly, developed the Trusted Data Format (TDF) – the open source standard that underpins all Virtru products – so that federal agencies could securely share top secret information.

At Virtru, we’ve taken this powerful data protection standard and integrated it with everyday applications, such as Gmail and Microsoft Outlook, to make it easy to protect sensitive information.

Today, millions of individuals and more than 6,000 organizations trust Virtru to secure the information that they create, share, and store. From hospitals to media giants to government organizations, Virtru makes personal and business privacy a reality.
