Email Encryption

By Jakomeit ·
I'm looking for some options for email encryption. I have looked at what Verisign has to offer but am not seeing anything that really fits my situation. With security more of a concern than ever, we want to be able to encrypt email and attachmentsthat we are sending to clients. So far everything I've seen requires both the sender and the receiver to purchase digital ID's. Our receiver's are not going to want to purchase an ID every year to recieve 1 or 2 emails as we are not going to want to purchase an ID for every one of our clients. Any suggestions?

Hi,
I use a good encryption program which you could use to encrypt the document and send as an attachment. It is easy to use and set up and use and best of all it is currently free! If you are interested drop me your e-mail address and I'll send it to you.

Regards,
PJ

PGP = Pretty Good Privacy

A freeware version is available, but you will need the commercial version for commercial applications. The software permits users to create key pairs and to distribute the public half of the key using email, floppy, or other methods. Please note that his method of key distribution does not incorporate authentication of sender identity through a mutually trusted CA. If digitially signatures are required, in your application you're going to have to get certificatesfrom a public CA; there's no way around it. But if you just need to encrypt between two end points and keep your keys secure, it's a great solution.

PGP software features an email client plugin for Outlook that greatly simplifies routine encryption/decryption tasks.

The technology is pretty straightforward. Training users on its daily application can be frustrating, though.
