The Latest Trends And Developments In Email Encryption Technology

Jul 8th 2014 at 11:23 PM

As electronic mail users are now more informed and better aware of the spying and snooping on their mails – the number of encrypted emails has hugely grown on all different platforms during the last couple of years or so. Moreover most e-mail service providers like Google, Facebook, Yahoo and other major companies are also trying to better shield users from spying and snooping activities. As demand for secure email sending is now on a high as never before many of the major electronic mail service providers are now offering automatic email encryption. But there is still a problem because unless the e-mail service provider of the mail recipient don’t offer the same facility, complete confidentiality cannot be ensured and that is also the reason that commercial secure service providers have already appeared in the market and enjoying a growing demand of their services among a wide cross section of regular email users.

There is absolutely no doubt that with secure email server and encrypted email the chance of those being snooped by interlopers can be considerably reduced. For sending secure and encrypted emails, major service providers like Google now uses an encryption technology known as TLS or Transport Layer Security. Though experts consider that it is not as secure as some of the other email encryption technologies in use, but it is also a fact that encryption technologies those are better secured are more complicated to use. Email service providers now have their focus on developing and using better encryption technology to reassure their clients regarding the privacy and security of the data and information of their mails and making them feel confident to continue with their services.

In spite of this kind of effort from the major service providers, experts consider the level of protection that they offer are still adequate and many of them actually prefer and recommend end-to-end email encryption methods. These kind of secure email services involve greater number of more complicated steps and also require a decryption key for accessing the data and information contained by those mails. The decryption keys are possessed only by the mail recipients making it virtually impossible to be accessed by anybody without the key in possession. Using this kind of encrypted and secure email service, users also demand more technical expertise.

Certainly email and data encryption technology is making rapid progress in order to cater to the demand of the situation but users are also required to understand the fact. Even the most secure email server or encryption technology is totally useless unless they are properly implemented and routinely upgraded. There are many professional service providers like ZixCorp who provide their clients with policy based email and data encryption services for regulatory compliance. Being one of the largest and also most reputed hosted email service providers in the country, ZixCorp offers advanced e-mail protection to their clients by fully protecting the sensitive data and information that they communicate through electronic mails.
