How does Virtru DLP scan content without giving Virtru access to it?

Virtru DLP works by downloading rules that describe the pattern and/or plain text you want to search for in the email.  These rules get downloaded to the browser and/or Outlook plugin that is running on the sender’s computers.  Because these rules are operating inside of the sender’s machine, all search operations are happening outside of Virtru’s servers, thus ensuring that the only information exchanged to Virtru occurs for encrypted messages that trigger a DLP rule, and not any of the unencrypted scanned content.
