Could an Email Containing Sensitive Data Put Your Business at Risk? 

Around the globe, email is a widely accepted method for sharing information with partners and customers. However, a single email containing sensitive or confidential business information could put your entire organization at risk. Failure to protect this information can be costly: investigating a breach, settling legal issues, and paying fines from industry regulators can seriously harm your company.

Symantec Policy Based Encryption Advanced is an add-on to Symantec Email Security.cloud that helps automatically safeguard the security and privacy of sensitive data you exchange with customers and business partners via email. The service lets you create and enforce flexible rules in accordance with policies set in Email Security.cloud Data Protection. By choosing a hosted encryption solution, you can start protecting your sensitive information in days – not months – and offload the cumbersome task of managing digital certificates and encryption keys.

Policy Based Encryption Advanced assists you in:

  • Implementing regulatory compliance measures more effectively by enforcing encryption automatically based on customizable policy rules.
  • Making encryption seamless to your users with multiple encryption options than can easily be read by the recipient on most devices, including mobile.
  • Managing costs by eliminating manual workarounds for sending secure data, deploying rapidly and reducing remediation expenses.

When setting up the service, administrators have maximum flexibility in determining which encryption method is used to send to different recipients. This allows the admin to attempt more transparent delivery methods, such as attempting TLS, PGP, or S/MIME first before falling back to less transparent delivery methods such as the web based pickup portal or secure PDF. The service is fully hosted and does not require installation of appliances or software by senders or recipients – regardless of whether organizations or individuals exchanging emails with your business are Symantec customers or have their own encryption capabilities.
