What is Trusted Data Format (TDF)?

The Trusted Data Format is essentially a protective wrapper containing your content. Whether you’re sending an email message, an Excel spreadsheet or a cat photo, your files are encrypted and “wrapped” into a TDF file, which communicates with Virtru-enabled key stores to maintain access privileges. When the email recipient attempts to open the message and attachments, the TDF wrapper communicates with the Virtru server and verifies whether the receiver is eligible to access the data. Once verified, they can decrypt, open and read the files.
