What You Should Know About Email Encryption

Have you ever sent an email containing:

-A Credit Card Number?

-A Social Security Number?

-Confidential Documents Attached?

When you sent these emails, were they encrypted?  If your answer is no, or you’re not sure, then you may have compromised sensitive information.  Most email you send travels a great distance over many networks, secure and unsecure, monitored and unmonitored.  These messages pass through and make copies of themselves on servers all over the internet.  In short, anyone with access to those servers can read your unencrypted emails.

Would you write your social security number on a post card and send it in the mail?  My guess is no, but sending sensitive information in an unencrypted email is just as dangerous.

So what can you do to protect your emails?

If you are mailing a check to pay a bill, you probably enclose the check in a security envelope with crossed lines on the inside to prevent people from viewing its contents.  Or, you might even go a step further and send the check via certified mail so that you can track it and get a return receipt.

Luckily, you have similar options for your email.  N-Guard Email Encryption has all of the features you need to keep your email secure.

How does it work?


When an email is encrypted, it is “translated” into a code that is unreadable to those who could access it while it is traveling across the internet.  When it arrives in the recipient’s mailbox, it is retranslated back into readable text.
