How is Virtru FERPA compliant?

Virtru provides client-side encryption within a package that works with the email provider you’re already using, and without a complicated portal. There’s no complicated setup procedure, and there’s no need to spend weeks training your staff (or worse, your patients). When you receive an email from Virtru, you simply sign up for a quick account and then proceed to read your email.

Virtru has the added bonus of allowing your administrators, teachers, parents, and students to access their encrypted email in their own inboxes, giving them control of their secure information. Not only do they not have to worry about remembering portal credentials, but they also don’t have to worry about logging in through multiple gateways just to access past records.

Confidential information sent to colleagues, other institutions, and parents remains private, audit-ready, and protected. Once a student turns 18, Virtru can be used to rescind permission to previously sent emails, enabling students to have full control over who sees their records.
