Data-Centric Email Protection for Outlook
End-to-End Email Encryption
Encrypt messages and attachments directly within the Outlook desktop app, before the data reaches O365 servers, preventing access by Microsoft and other unauthorized parties, everywhere they’re shared.
Granular Access Controls
Set expiration, disable forwarding, and watermark attachments with recipients’ names to deter them from leaking sensitive files.
Revoke access to messages and attachments immediately when emails are sent in error, or after the data within has become more sensitive.
Persistent File Protection
Keep attachments under your control even after they’re moved from Gmail to desktops, shared network folders, Google Drive, or anywhere else files are stored and shared.
“If your organization needs to increase email security, Virtru offers the features you need and is surprisingly easy to use.”
-Ben Baez, Application Admin, Bancroft
Industry-Leading Ease of Use
Easy, On-Demand Protection
Senders apply protections with a click of a button. Encryption and controls are embedded in the native user experience with a simple Outlook add-in, ensuring user adoption.
Seamless Recipient Access
Users with Virtru read and respond transparently, directly from their inbox. External recipients without Virtru access protected email through the Secure Reader with existing credentials – non-MSFT recipients don’t need a new account and password.
Senders can easily view who has accessed or forwarded email, throughout the full data lifecycle, and can always revoke access or adapt controls.
“We like the control features. For example, being able to revoke a message, and have an audit trail, really sets Virtru apart.”
-Dave Steck, VP of IT Infrastructure, Schnucks Market
Painless, Enterprise-Ready Administration
Deploy to all users, or specific groups or OUs, via Microsoft installer tools, to get users up and running in minutes.
Granular Audit & SIEM Integration
Maintain visibility of who has accessed or forwarded your organization’s email throughout their lifecycle. Integrate with your SIEM to strengthen threat response and compliance workflows.
Automatic, Rules-Based Protection
Automatically enforce encryption with DLP rules that detect and protect sensitive data. Reinforce security awareness with alerts that warn users to encrypt email.
Key Management at Scale
Integrate with existing key management processes and HSMs. Host your own keys for full control, while Virtru manages policies and key exchanges.
Google Vault Support
Search, decrypt, and export archived messages directly from Google Vault.
“The installation process was a breeze because Virtru integrates seamlessly into Outlook, Google Apps, and Gmail, which is what all our government departments use.”
-Richard Juliano, Chief Technology Officer, Columbia County, NY
The Virtru Difference
Unlike other email encryption options, Virtru keeps messages and attachments protected throughout their full lifecycle, while ease of use ensures adoption and maximizes ROI.
No Third Party Access
Virtru’s end-to-end encryption, powered by the open standard Trusted Data Format, keeps plaintext data shielded from access by the email provider and other unauthorized parties.
No New Accounts
Virtru leverages existing account credentials. External recipients never have to create new usernames and passwords to access protected email.
No Keywords to Remember
Other approaches rely on keywords to protect email that busy users forget, putting email at risk. Virtru offers keyword-based AND on-demand protections that senders turn on by simply flipping a switch.
No Manual Key Exchanges
Unlike other end-to-end solutions, users never have to exchange keys. Virtru hosts keys and manages exchanges, making it easy for users to collaborate securely. You can also host your own keys.
No Separate Portal Applications or Software to Install
Virtru integrates seamlessly with existing email clients, including Gmail and Outlook. You don’t have to introduce redundant portal applications and new workflows that frustrate users.
No Forced Vendor Trust or Blind Subpoena Risk
Most vendors force you to trust them to host your data and the keys protecting it, risking blind government subpoenas. Virtru reduces this risk by storing keys separately from the data.
More than 20,000 organizations trust Virtru for data security and privacy protection.
