What is FERPA?

FERPA, an acronym for The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, is a federal law that grants rights to parents to have access to their children’s educational records. FERPA also awards parents control over the disclosure of PII (personally identifiable information) as well as the right to request amendment to some records.

FERPA Data Protection for Students

Full Visibility and Control Wherever Student PII is Shared

Virtru offers persistent protection that puts control over student data back in your hands.


Protect Student Privacy

Using the interoperable, open standard Trusted Data Format (TDF), Virtru provides end-to-end encryption for FERPA compliant email and access controls that protect PII, PHI, disciplinary reports and other sensitive data, wherever it is shared.


Control Shared Data

Revoke or expire access to email, disable forwarding even after data is opened or shared, and automatically watermark confidential attachments. Implement DLP rules to automatically apply controls to any email containing sensitive data.


Audit Unstructured Data

Granular audit trails let you see where sensitive data is shared and revoke access at any time. Virtru provides full visibility into who has accessed or forwarded emails for seamless FERPA, and HIPAA, audits, and SIEM integrations improve threat remediation workflows.
