Virtru for Microsoft Outlook helps organizations using Microsoft 365 and on-premise seamlessly protect messages and attachments with end-to-end encryption. Mitigate risk and comply with regulatory obligations to protect confidential data.
Virtru's data protection for Microsoft 365 adds a layer of data-centric security and control to information flowing in and out of your business.
With Virtru, you can protect your data at the object level, surrounding each individual email and file with its own layer of encryption. Virtru’s Trusted Data Format safeguards data everywhere it travels, so you can share information with the confidence it’s always under your control.
Virtru supports—and advocates for—a Zero Trust strategy that validates every person or system accessing your sensitive data. We encourage you to manage your own encryption keys and associated policies, so that neither Virtru, nor Microsoft, or any other third party has visibility into your data.
In a world that’s becoming increasingly hybrid in every sense (Microsoft and Google, PC and Mac, on-prem and cloud-based), Virtru equips you with the tools you need to ensure consistent experiences across a variety of devices, platforms, and environments.
“If your organization needs to increase email security, Virtru offers the features you need and is surprisingly easy to use.”
-Ben Baez, Application Admin, Bancroft
We’ve all sent emails in error, whether attaching the wrong file or sending to an unintended recipient. Data access needs and circumstances can also change at any moment. With Virtru, Outlook users and administrators can immediately revoke access to messages. Users also have the ability to set and adjust controls at any time: Set an expiration date, disable forwarding, and more.
See exactly who has opened your emails, and whether they’ve been shared with others. For additional security, you can also add watermarks to shared files, restrict downloading, and implement persistent file protection, which allows you to revoke access to a file even after a recipient saves it to their desktop, shared network folders, or other location.
Automatically enforce encryption with data loss prevention (DLP) rules that detect and protect sensitive data. In addition to outlook email protection, don’t forget about the emails that flow through enterprise apps like Salesforce, Zendesk, SAP, and Workday, which can be protected with Virtru’s Data Protection Gateway.
“Virtru is very easy to use and to learn. It integrates with my Outlook, and I can turn Virtru on/off from the Outlook app. I work with sensitive patient information, so I am confident that the information I am sending is secure with Virtru.”
-Yung K., Healthcare Practice Support Assistant
Get users up and running within minutes. For larger organizations or complex deployments, Virtru’s subject matter experts are available to provide administrators with the support they need to ensure a successful implementation.
Because Virtru is so easy to use, administrators don’t need to spend much time training employees. Virtru is integrated directly within Outlook, so users just toggle on the Virtru switch to protect an email, and simply select any additional controls they want to apply.
Jumping through hoops (like needing to create new accounts and passwords) can be the difference between a readable email and one that’s quickly sent to trash. An easy verification experience that confirms the identity of the email recipient is what sets Virtru apart. External recipients can easily access protected email through the Virtru Secure Reader without needing to create a new account and password.
By giving employees greater autonomy over how and when to protect the data they’re sharing (including the ability to revoke sent messages), you equip them with the tools they need to make the right security decisions about their data. The result is a highly secure environment that empowers data sharing and collaboration, unlocking new opportunities to innovate.
With Virtru, organizations can move to the cloud with the confidence that their data is always under their control. When organizations encrypt their data and manage their own encryption keys separately from that data, they ensure that cloud providers and partners like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and even Virtru cannot view their most private information. This also helps global organizations ensure data sovereignty and data residency.
Data breaches are becoming increasingly frequent and sophisticated. When you control your own encryption keys and corresponding policies, you can immediately respond to a suspected data breach or cyber threat, without having to wait for a software patch. Virtru allows you to rotate your keys and adjust associated policies at any time, giving you full control over incident response.
Control where you store the encryption keys for Microsoft 365 while Virtru does the heavy lifting of managing your policies and key exchanges. Virtru Private Keystore helps you meet regulatory compliance obligations and ensure data sovereignty, wherever your data is created, stored and shared.
