Data Sheet

Virtru Data Protection Gateway

Protect data coming from applications before they leave or enter your network, and from unprotected endpoints, while maintaining complete control over that data.

Every organization has applications and processes that share sensitive data, whether employee or machine generated. This requires a layered solution to confidently manage data sharing as the amount of generated data grows and requirements to protect data evolve. The Virtru Data Protection Gateway automatically protects data shared by custom internal applications or enterprise SaaS applications and integrates with your existing email infrastructure and workflows to provide data protection when and where it’s needed.

Inbound + Outbound Protection for Data Security, Collaboration, and Control


Maintain confidentiality for communications including automated workflows.


Support compliance for data privacy regulations such as HIPAA, GDPR, PCI, and CCPA.

Secure Sharing

Protect internal and external sharing workflows and help prevent human error.

Encryption, Decryption, and Policy Enforcement for Data Sharing Workflows

  • Protect messages sent and received by custom or SaaS applications like Salesforce, Zendesk, and Workday, without disrupting existing processes.
  • Enforce DLP policies by scanning messages and attachments for sensitive data and adding encryption and access controls.
  • Enable seamless recipient access and response workflows, without requiring new accounts, passwords, or software.
  • Support rapid time-to-value and reduce IT overhead with Virtru and cloud-hosted deployment options and mail flow integrations.

Supported Workflows

Encrypting Data Outside Supported Mail Clients

  • Outbound Encryption protects emails and files before they leave your domain to ensure communications stay compliant, private, and secure.
  • Inbound Decryption enables plaintext scanning by an application or MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) before it enters your domain for anti-malware, anti-spam, and compliance.
  • Outbound Decryption and Archiving allow emails to be copied and sent to archives to support eDiscovery and audit reporting processes.
  • Inbound Encryption secures PII and PHI within incoming messages sent from patients, customers, clients, and partners, to ensure compliance.
  • Outbound Data Loss Prevention determines what messages get auto-encrypted based on security policies, what can pass without requiring encryption, and what warns (or logs) a potential issue.

Hosting Options and Deployment

  • Virtru Managed- Meets most common data protection needs by offering outbound encryption and inbound decryption with a seamless deployment process.
  • Customer (Self) Managed- Offers added functionality to meet additional requirements by hosting on your cloud provider such as AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud platforms or on-premise.
