Full Visibility and Control Wherever Student PII is Shared

Virtru offers persistent protection that puts control over student data back in your hands.

Protect

Using the interoperable, open standard Trusted Data Format (TDF), Virtru provides end-to-end encryption for FERPA compliant email and access controls that protect PII, PHI, disciplinary reports and other sensitive data, wherever it is shared.

Control

Revoke or expire access to email, disable forwarding even after data is opened or shared, and automatically watermark confidential attachments. Implement DLP rules to automatically apply controls to any email containing sensitive data.

Audit

Granular audit trails let you see where sensitive data is shared and revoke access at any time. Virtru provides full visibility into who has accessed or forwarded emails for seamless FERPA, and HIPAA, audits, and SIEM integrations improve threat remediation workflows.
