HIPAA Compliant Email and File Sharing Encryption

Encrypt and control Protected Health Information (PHI) inside and outside your organization to meet HIPAA compliance requirements.


“We have found Virtru to be the best solution for HIPAA compliant email encryption.”

Jason Karn
Chief Compliance Officer, Total HIPAA

Easily Share and Receive Data to Maintain HIPAA Compliance

Patients and clients trust you to protect their most sensitive and private health data. Send HIPAA compliant emails and attachments from Gmail, Outlook, and mobile devices. And go beyond email to encrypt data in Google Drive, Salesforce, and patient management apps. Virtru fits within your current technology infrastructure so that you can take control of your PHI within minutes.

Based on the HIPAA Security Rule and the safeguards recommended to maintain the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of ePHI, Virtru helps you meet compliance:

  • Protect data throughout its lifecycle with end-to-end encryption.
  • Require authentication or share data directly with patients via one-click secure access.
  • Maintain data visibility with audit logs to see who has attempted to access data, track where data travels, and take action to reduce/ mitigate breaches. Use SIEM integrations to improve threat remediation workflows.
  • Revoke access and adjust access controls at any time to maintain ownership over data.
  • Leverage our HIPAA DLP rule pack or create your own rules to automatically encrypt designated types of data.
  • Use Virtru Secure Share for protected file exchanges and collaboration.

“With Virtru, we are solving the issue of email security when sending patient information to physicians or offices. Working in healthcare, we must follow HIPAA guidelines and be sure to send patient information in a secure manner. Virtru allows me to feel safe when sending patient information because I know the information is encrypted.”

Virtru Is a Crucial Part of Your HIPAA Compliance Solution

Unlike solutions using TLS encryption that only encrypts data in transit, Virtru protects data from creation to storage to internal and external sharing.

Virtru uses encryption algorithms that comply with FIPS 140-2, is FedRAMP authorized at the moderate impact level, and adheres to the security controls defined by NIST SP 800-53. Virtru cannot access your protected data at any time.

Gain persistent protection that puts control over sensitive data back in your hands. Protect, control, and have the ability to audit your PHI and other sensitive data to improve data security while enhancing patient collaboration and engagement.

“We quickly settled on Virtru as a partner – they had the key functionality we were looking for, which was end-to-end encryption and seamless integration with G Suite.”

– Patrick Curry, VP IT & Security, Omaha Health
