Why Virtru

Self-Protecting Data with Surprising Ease of Use

By combining the open standard Trusted Data Format (TDF) with patented technology to streamline user experience, Virtru offers unparalleled interoperability and ease of use.

Addressing an Age-Old Problem

For too many years, traditional data protection technologies have tried and failed to secure our most sensitive information. Why? Because they create friction for the end users and fail to provide real control over information after it’s shared. At Virtru, we’ve taken a new approach, combining open standards, data-centric protections, and patented technology that removes friction for senders, recipients, and administrators.

Virtru Secure User-First Technology

Secure User-First patented technology that powers Virtru’s revolutionary ease of use.
