How Egress Protect helps

Safely protect sensitive data

As reliance on email communication increases, so does the risk of sharing sensitive information. We shield sensitive data with simple email and file encryption that offers security in proportion to the level of risk, allowing you to encrypt emails and attachments in transit and at rest, and add multi-factor authentication and policy controls for additional security.

You can encrypt both at the desktop or the email gateway, and control access to messages in shared mailboxes. We have full integration with Microsoft Outlook and Office 365 allowing you to secure and share data easily.

How we do it

Vigorous message-level encryption and rights management
AES-256 bit encryption provides message-level protection via an on-premise, cloud or hybrid solution, while comprehensive permissions include read-only access, disabled attachment downloads, and restricted forwarding.

Fine-grained message revocation, audit and control
Far-reaching audit logs and message restrictions maintain control of shared information, while full revocation capabilities give you additional security by fixing mistakes and preventing a breach. Control how recipients can use your shared data, revoking access or changing access permissions in real-time. Add watermarks and restrict printing to keep documents in your control. 

Government and industry certifications
We have been accredited by industry bodies and governments with multiple certifications, including ISO 27001, FIP 140-2, Common Criteria, Commercial Product Assurance, NATO, EU-approved cryptographic product, and Skyhigh CloudTru

Customise email security policies and automation 
Prompt or enforce encryption when a user tries to send sensitive data, or encrypt automatically based on the recipient and any keywords.

Bypass file size instructions securely

Limits on attachment and file size can be frustrating. We allow users to encrypt large files within a single message so you can enjoy enterprise grade security without the stress of employees relying on free and far less secure alternatives.

How we do it

Send 100s MB of data
Securely attach 100s of megabytes of data within a single email without the hassle of sending large volumes of data across multiple messages or using other less secure options.

Easy drag-and-drop experience
A simple and seamless plug-in interface makes attaching large files easy, removing layers from the process and avoiding user frustration.

Customisable interactions
Custom-created notifications either prompt users for decisions or block emails being sent to unauthorised recipients or distribution groups.

Secure data relative to the actual risk of a data breach
Integration with Egress Prevent ensures sensitive data is always protected in line with data protection regulations, including GDPR.

Keep data safe by engaging employees

When email protection solutions are complex, users avoid them altogether, putting data confidentiality at risk. Our simple solution engages people to effectively protect the sensitive information they share with colleagues and partners. Trusted recipients can authenticate seamlessly to access Egress encrypted emails, with account log-in or multi-factor authentication required when the risk is higher. 

How we do it

Single Sign-On
We remove friction from recipient access by supporting single sign-on via MS Active Directory, using ADFS or other providers such as SAML v2.

Enhanced mobility
Users can appropriately secure sensitive content from their mobile devices with powerful iOS and Android apps.

Ease of use for recipients
It’s free for recipients to reply securely to your Egress-encrypted messages, so you don’t need to worry about hidden processes and costs getting in the way of data protection.

Accelerate access to sensitive content

Our smart authentication functionality takes the hassle out of email security by using machine learning to continuously learn a recipient’s domain and location, and seamlessly authenticate access to Egress-encrypted messages.

How we do it

Machine learning and data analytics
Machine learning algorithms assess a recipient’s domain, behaviour, location and IT system information in order to determine, and continuously build, trust levels.

Appropriate levels of authentication
We apply seamless authentication for trusted recipients, while log-in or multi-factor authentication come into effect when the risks are higher.

Ease-of-use and simplicity
The simplicity of Smart Authentication for recipients removes user frustration and the potential rise of ‘shadow IT’ when emailing sensitive data.

Security the way you want it

Secure email on-premise, hybrid or in the cloud by hosting Egress in locations of your choice, or use hybrid email security for the best of both worlds.

How we do it

Complete control over user management
Enable single-sign-on, organise internal and external users into groups with specific access permissions, and monitor activity with audit logs and user reports.

Send secure emails from any device
Send encrypted emails from any device via the Egress web portal, or use our range of mobile apps for secure data transfer when on the road.

Assurance through certifications
Be confident in your data security with ISO27001 accreditation for the Egress platform and all hosting locations. Egress is also the only email security solution with Commercial Product Assurance accreditation from the UK National Cyber Security Centre.
