Guaranteeing TLS is secure

Our intelligent technology detects whether TLS is properly enabled by each recipient's organization and determines that it's appropriate to use relative to the sensitivity of the data being shared. 

We dynamically notify users as they send emails if TLS isn't properly enabled or suitable, and can automate appropriate security to reduce human error. Local authorities can therefore adhere to GDS guides for TLS use, with clear visibility over the protection being applied.
