You Can Now Search and Decrypt Virtru-Encrypted Emails in Google Vault

Data privacy protection concept with lock over binary digits

Virtru users can now search the bodies of encrypted messages from any of our supported email platforms. We’re excited to extend those search capabilities to emails archived in Google Vault.

Searching Encrypted Messages Archived in Google Vault

Google Vault provides organizations a seamless way to archive and search all of the emails sent across their domain. Whether for legal e-discovery, financial audits, or compliance procedures, access to this historical data is a critical business requirement. Since these records often contain sensitive information, effective encryption must keep content secure and easily discoverable by authorized parties.

Virtru’s search architecture separates content and search indices from encryption keys, allowing for search of encrypted Vault content without giving third parties (i.e., Google and Virtru) access to unencrypted content.

With Virtru’s Google Vault E-Discovery Support enabled, Google Workspace administrators can conduct searches of Virtru-encrypted emails and decrypt them directly from the Vault interface.
