Protect Local Government Email and Data with End-to-End Encryption

Advances in technology have helped transform government services, enabling government employees to spend more time on mission-critical work and better serve constituents, providing citizens with a much more convenient option for accessing critical government services, and helping streamline collaboration between agencies and departments to provide public services.

While these trends bring massive opportunities for more informed policy decision-making, faster service, and better stewardship of taxpayer-funded budgets, they also carry significant risks. Cloud environments leave sensitive data at risk of exposure, raising concerns regarding privacy and regulatory compliance.

With persistent data protection and granular access controls, Virtru empowers state and local governments to unlock the power of data and maintain control, wherever it is shared. Using Virtru, you can:

  • Ensure compliance with regulations such as CJIS, FERPA, HIPAA, and more.
  • Use protected email and encrypted files to communicate with agency partners, citizens, and third parties.
  • Unlock digital workflows to support remote workers and distributed teams.
  • Boost user adoption with easy-to-use protections, seamless recipient access, and a quick installation process that gets users up and running in minutes.
