How Egress Protect helps

Safely protect sensitive data

As reliance on email communication increases, so does the risk of sharing sensitive information. Email encryption offers security by shielding sensitive data. Our secure email software 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.

Egress Protect offers the option for secure email encryption at both 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 secure emails

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

Customize 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 email encryption, without the stress of employees relying on free and far less secure alternatives.

How we transfer large files

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-inem interface makes attaching large files easy, removing layers from the process and avoiding user frustration.

Customizable interactions
Custom-created notifications either prompt users for decisions or block emails being sent to unauthorized 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.

Avoid recipient pushback

Authentication doesn’t need to painful. Our flexible authentication techniques support your recipient’s requirements, even allowing trusted partners to access sensitive emails securely without logging into a secure portal, in turn removing friction and enhancing their experience.

How our flexible authentication works

Secure Egress portal
Recipients sign into their complimentary Egress account for maximum security.

Shared secrets
Recipients enter a password or unique identifier only known to them and the sender.

One click access
A one-time recipient access code for trusted recipients, enabling them to seamlessly access encrypted emails without needing to authenticate.

Keep data safe by engaging employees

When email protection solutions are complex, users avoid them altogether, putting data confidentiality at risk. Our simple email encryption 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 encrypt email

Single Sign-On
Our secure email encryption software removes friction from recipient access by supporting single sign-on via MS Active Directory, using ADFS or other providers such as SAML v2.

Enhanced mobility
Egress email encryption solution allows users to 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 trusted access to sensitive content

Egress’ secure email encryption tool offers the opportunity to secure emails 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 secure email

Complete control over user management
Enable single-sign-on, organize 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 encryption solution with Commercial Product Assurance accreditation from the UK National Cyber Security Centre.
