Data-Centric Gmail Protection

Data is meant to move, and it is constantly flowing in and out of your business. With Virtru, you can keep your information under your control, at all times—even after it's been shared externally. 


End-to-End Email Encryption

Encrypt messages and attachments directly within Gmail, before the data reaches Google’s servers, preventing access by Google and other unauthorized parties, everywhere they’re shared.

Granular Access Controls

Set expiration, disable forwarding, and watermark attachments with recipients’ names to deter them from leaking sensitive files.

Instant Revocation

Revoke access to messages and attachments immediately when emails are sent in error, or after the data within has become more sensitive.

Persistent File Protection

Keep attachments under your control even after they’re moved from Gmail to desktops, shared network folders, Google Drive, or anywhere else files are stored and shared.

More than 7,000 customers trust Virtru for data security and privacy protection.

“We selected Virtru due to their thoughtful user interface and best in class data protection.”

Easy, Affordable Gmail Encryption

Your teams work fast. Data protection shouldn't slow them down. 


One-Click Encryption Inside Gmail

Senders apply protections with a flip of a switch. Encryption and controls are embedded in the native Gmail user experience with a simple Chrome extension, ensuring user adoption.

Seamless Recipient Access

Users with Virtru read and respond transparently, directly from their inbox. External recipients without Virtru access protected email through the Secure Reader with existing credentials – non-Google recipients don’t need a new account and password.

Persistent Visibility

Senders can easily view who has accessed or forwarded email, throughout the full data lifecycle, and can always revoke access or adapt controls.

Data Loss Prevention

Mitigate data sharing risks and help meet regulatory compliance with Virtru’s configurable DLP security rules that detect sensitive data. Create a safety net that protects against human error by automatically encrypting or alerting users before sending.

“We like the control features. For example, being able to revoke a message, and have an audit trail, really sets Virtru apart.”

“If your organization needs to increase email security, Virtru offers the features you need and is surprisingly easy to use.”

The Virtru Difference

Unlike other email encryption options, Virtru keeps messages and attachments protected throughout their full lifecycle, while ease of use ensures adoption and maximizes ROI.

No Third Party Access

Virtru’s end-to-end encryption, powered by the open standard Trusted Data Format, keeps plaintext data shielded from access by the email provider and other unauthorized parties.

No New Accounts

Virtru leverages existing account credentials. External recipients never have to create new usernames and passwords to access protected email.

No Keywords to Remember

Other approaches rely on keywords to protect email that busy users forget, putting email at risk. Virtru offers keyword-based AND on-demand protections that senders turn on by simply flipping a switch.

No Manual Key Exchanges

Unlike other end-to-end solutions, users never have to exchange keys. Virtru hosts keys and manages exchanges, making it easy for users to collaborate securely. You can also host your own keys.

No Separate Portal Applications or Software to Install

Virtru integrates seamlessly with existing email clients, including Gmail and Outlook. You don’t have to introduce redundant portal applications and new workflows that frustrate users.

No Forced Vendor Trust or Blind Subpoena Risk

Most vendors force you to trust them to host your data and the keys protecting it, risking blind government subpoenas. Virtru reduces this risk by storing keys separately from the data.
