RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zeva, Incorporated has developed a new service that makes sending encrypted email easy. As a significant number of data breaches continue to occur on a regular basis, corporations and government agencies are realizing the criticality of protecting and securing sensitive data sent over e-mail. While most systems support it, less than 1% of e-mail is sent with end-to-end encryption.
Organizations who are considering implementation of end-to-end encryption for email, face two major challenges. First, it is often difficult to find the right information (the public key certificate) of the recipient to send an encrypted email. This challenge increases when the recipient is an employee of an external organization. Second, once the email is encrypted, data recovery becomes more complex.
Zeva’s virtual Global Address List, or vGAL, is a hosted service that helps a sender quickly and easily find the public key encryption certificate of a recipient to send an encrypted e-mail – even if that recipient is in a different agency or company. Since it is based on standard protocols, it is easy to integrate with existing directory systems. Once an organization begins encrypting e-mail, Zeva’s DecryptNaBox e-mail decryption solution provides a mechanism for data recovery without complexity.
By leveraging capabilities to encrypt e-mail, while maintaining the ability to perform data recovery for legal or e-Discovery purposes, organizations can significantly reduce a number of risks. The vGAL and DecryptNaBox technologies will significantly improve the ability of these organizations to protect sensitive data and mitigate the ongoing and evolving threats from cyber-attacks and data breaches.
