Behind the scenes we are working hard on our latest product version, V4. To keep you informed of all developments, from now on we will share a new or updated feature every Friday in our “Feature Friday.” This Friday: e-mail body encryption.

Data encryption and data security have become more or less synonymous. And it is important that data is protected from third parties, and only remains visible to those for whom it is intended. But there are many different types of encryption and different solutions to the problem of data security.

For the secure sending and receiving of data, we offer end-to-end encryption, where the encryption relates to the attachments of an e-mail. The attachments are sent encrypted and only the authorized recipient has access to these attachments. The e-mail body is not (yet) secured, which means that the email itself is not sent encrypted. But, that is one of the biggest innovations that V4 will have.

E-mail Body Encryption with V4

With e-mail body encryption in our new version comes a new level of security, and an improved way of communicating. The end-to-end encryption that previously only related to the attachments now also applies to the content of the e-mail. Emailing is not only more secure, but also much more user-friendly. The sender can send an e-mail, with possibly privacy-sensitive information, and not have to worry about the content becoming visible to third parties. Organizations that make extensive use of the e-mail not only to share privacy-sensitive attachments but also to communicate via e-mail, can now also use e-mail as a fully secured communication channel.

Body encryption of V4, therefore, offers both encryption of the attachments and the content of the e-mail itself. Data is secured from start to finish. Whether you share it in the attachment or as the text of the e-mail itself: in both cases, your message will be encrypted.
