Info: End-to-end encryption of email messages to prevent spies and government agencies from reading
Why should you encrypt emails with abylon CRYPTMAIL:
Emails have decisively changed communication in recent years. Almost everyone now has at least one email address. Thus it is obvious that a large part of the private and business letters find their way over the worldwide data network. But here lies the danger, the email is comparable with a postcard and can be easily intercepted and spied on the way to the receiver.
How to encrypt emails and attachments with abylon CRYPTMAIL:
With abylon CRYPTMAIL encrypted emails can be easily created and sent. Only the owner of the private key (HYBRID system) or the correct password (SYMM system) can open and read these e-mails, for any other person the content remains locked.
The AddIn for Outlook (from Outlook 2000 / not Outlook Express) allows with one click the encryption, decryption, signature or verification of your data. For encryption, both the SYMM system with password entry and the HYBRID system (PKCS standard) using X.509 certificates are supported. So-called Secure Message Envelops (SME) are offered for business use, whereby the signature with your certificate and the encryption with the recipient's public keys are carried out in one step.
Alternatively an additional interface for signing and / or encrypting emails is offered for all other email clients with MAPI connection.
