FERPA Email Compliance
for Education

Secure, share, and control sensitive emails and files


The Easiest Way To Protect Student Data

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.

Virtru Pro is Great For:

  • School-to-school communications, including student education records
  • School-to-student communications, such as grades, course progress, and even health information
  • School-to-parent communications, including progress in a course, deficiencies in a subject area, scores and grades on papers, exams, etc.
  • Health provider-to-school communications, including student medical records, prescription information, and procedures

“Government regulations do not make education any easier for administrators. Virtru does. I never imagined such a robust tool could integrate so effortlessly at an organization like ours.”
