Data encryption in Outlook: secure your data in Outlook

Outlook is used today in many companies, organisations and even public institutions. But how can you increase the level of protection of your emails sent and received via Outlook?

Protect your Outlook data

Why encrypt your data in Outlook? Because when information is exchanged by email, it is exposed to the risks induced by this type of use: interception, leaks and even data theft, etc. The data exchanged via Outlook varies from one organisation to another: know-how regarding manufacturing processes, R&D, location of raw materials, internal audits (protection of figures, investments, etc.), exchanges between executive committee members, takeovers, HR data, accounting data, exchanges between a journalist and his/her sources, production line, drawing of an industrial part, etc. But all this data has to be protected to ensure the sustainability of the organisation.

Exchange securely with Outlook

How does protecting your data in emails with Outlook work? Encrypting your emails enables you to exchange your sensitive data in a secure manner from end to end. To do this, use an effective and seamless solution: the Stormshield Data Security (SDS) offer is fully integrated into the Outlook environment. Sensitive data is encrypted and decrypted automatically in the Outlook client, with no additional action required from the user.

Maintain the Outlook user experience

How can I maintain the ease of use provided by the Outlook environment? To be effective, the action of securing sensitive data must be on a par with the ease of use provided by Outlook and therefore integrate protection functions as close to business-line flows as possible. This is because unsatisfactory user experience reduces the acceptance of data protection solutions and thus slows down their deployment.
