“We had experience with a traditional, portal-based email encryption product, but our users found this mechanism far too cumbersome for our users and their recipients. With Virtru, we found a solution that met our security and compliance requirements, was easy enough to ensure widespread adoption, and gave us the audit and control features we wanted.”
