Email Encryption for GDPR

Digitally Sign and Encrypt Your Email Communications with Zero-Touch Deployment Across Your Enterprise

Sectigo's Corporate Email Encryption (S/MIME) solution is the industry’s first zero-touch deployment, X.509 certificate management system. This system provisions digital identities automatically to any application using traditional windows devices or mobile devices. Many popular mail apps support S/MIME, so that email certificates can be deployed across all devices in a few simple steps. For effective GDPR compliance, email encryption must be invisible, easy for the administrator to deploy, and seamless for employees to use.

Under GDPR penalties for loss, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure of data can range as high as four percent of global annual revenue or €20 million, whichever is higher. Because unencrypted email is readable by many parties including the enterprise IT administrator, the internet service provider, and the cloud mail server provider, sending an unencrypted email with individuals’ personal or sensitive information may be illegal under GDPR.

Sectigo's Corporate Email Encryption (S/MIME) solution offers:

  • Automatic Zero-Touch deployment of private and public S/MIME certificates with a unified management platform
  • Sending the entire encryption key history to all mails apps so even older emails can be decrypted
  • Encryption key archiving so the employee can recover accidentally destroyed keys
  • Interoperation with the secure email gateways so that the enterprise may still use mail scanners to perform their functions on encrypted and signed emails

Unified Management Platform

A single administrator console allows for the provisioning of both publicly trusted S/MIME certificates and private certificates dedicated to the exclusive use of the enterprise. The console allows for control over employee, server, and device enrollment. It effortlessly provides discovery, reporting, automated renewal without employee involvement, and revocation when the employee leaves.

The console enables crypto-agility using renewal on demand, including the ability to increase the cryptographic strength of the identity. The console automatically adopts all previously issued certificates to dramatically improve deployment, with the most popular being the certificates issued by the corporation’s Active Directory Certificate Service. These certificates can then be automatically replaced by publicly trusted S/MIME certificates. Public S/MIME allows for any S/MIME capable mail application to validate the sender’s identity and also that the email and its attachments have not been altered in transit. This is in addition to encrypting both the email body and its attachments, with no change to the unencrypted email experience.
