Email encryption for businesses is important to prevent the accidental exposure of sensitive information and to protect against the interception of data in transit. When an email is sent, there are stopovers on the way from the sender to the recipient. There is the device where the email originates, the company email server, the recipient’s email server, and the recipient’s device. Emails can be intercepted at any of those points, and the sender and receiver would be none the wiser. Emails can also be intercepted in transit and altered in a man-in-the-middle attack, again without the knowledge of the sender or the receiver.
If an email is sent requesting a change to a fantasy football team, encryption is perhaps overkill, but financial reports, password resets, proprietary company information, and sensitive employee data are often sent via email. The interception of those messages could be highly damaging to a business. Individuals can easily lose trust in a company if mistakes are made, and loss of reputation is very hard to recover from. The exposure of sensitive information can also have severe financial consequences for a business.
Due to the sensitive nature of email data, hackers target unencrypted email and mail servers. One notable example is the hacking of Sony Pictures in 2014 when North Korean hackers compromised a mail server and gained access to highly sensitive emails. The hack reportedly cost the company several million dollars to resolve (estimates range from $15 million to $100 million), damaged the company’s reputation and was a major cause of embarrassment.
If you want peace of mind that your emails cannot be intercepted in transit and can only be read by the intended recipient, you need to use email encryption. Secure and easy email encryption for businesses is vital. Businesses need to protect their email communications but do so in a way that does not affect employee productivity. If encrypting emails is time-consuming, employees may end up sending their emails without encrypting them.
Modern email encryption for businesses is virtually invisible. Virtually all the complicated business of encrypting emails takes place behind the scenes and is seamlessly applied to email communications. The productivity of users is not affected, yet emails are fully protected in transit with end-to-end encryption to ensure that only the intended recipient can view messages.
