Maintaining Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliant communications between teachers, administrators, parents, and students is a must in today’s environment. By using data-centric email encryption, education professionals can protect student privacy and help maintain FERPA email compliance.
Virtru Pro offers the easiest, most secure way for educational institutions to send secure messages and attachments that comply with FERPA. Virtru Pro integrates with the email services that teachers and students already use every day, like G Suite, Gmail, and Outlook ensuring that communications are secure and compliant.
With Virtru Pro, organizations can send FERPA-compliant encrypted emails, revoke sent messages, restrict forwarding, and set emails and files to auto-delete. Confidential information sent to colleagues, other institutions, and parents remains private, audit-ready, and protected. Once a student turns 18, Virtru Pro can be used to rescind permission to previously sent emails, enabling students to have full control over who sees their records.
Virtru Pro works with all major email systems and is especially well-suited to organizations using cloud-based email providers such as Gmail, G Suite (formerly known as Google Apps for Work), and Microsoft Office 365.
