The Rise Of Email Encryption And Related Services

Sep 20th 2015 at 11:30 PM

One of the simplest explanations of the concept of encrypted email can be protecting the messages that have been sent and received electronically. When the web began, any kind of security online was a matter that was through to be impossible. The only means available to secure your online accounts was through the use of passwords by the then nascent netzines which were abysmally simple to crack. Hacking has been around ever since the internet came into being which is why its introductory phases were completely shrouded by a fog of mistrust and apprehension from users.

Things have changed however..

The web is a much more secure place today, thanks to simple yet bold steps taken by developers in the right direction. Email encryption technology is one such advancement in the field. In 1991, Philip Zimmerman created a free encryption system. His version later on became the most widely used encryption tool in the world. You can expect what happened next – mass hysteria, panic and government sanctions on the technology with Zimmerman being termed as a criminal. The man even endured a three year long criminal investigation.

But history has it that his work was eventually viewed in the right light! He was, however, later on freed. Zimmerman has, since then, received numerous awards. One such recognition is his contribution to data security.

Email encryption which once a largely military tool is now available at the disposal of anyone who wishes to keep his online communications private and secure. Everyday individuals as well as corporate organizations are reaping the benefits of this amazing technology. You too should make sure your precious private data doesn’t fall into wrong hands as a result of an unsecured email line.

The world today is witnessing a new revolution- one that the likes of Zimmerman started in the 90s. People are becoming more and more conscious about online privacy and data security. Did you know that most email providers access and analyze your private emails for insights into your interests. These analytics are then sold off to online marketing companies who serve you with advertisements and promotions on the basis of what they think you like. Next time you open your Gmail Account, just take a peek at those promotional links flashing buy at the corner of the screen. You will be surprised to find their similarity and relation to the content in the emails you receive in your mailbox. It is these issues that Email encryption seeks to address, even more so in the case of corporate messaging where successful espionage can cost a company millions of dollars and lost opportunities.

There are various secure email services available online today that you can check up on. They provide packages for both individual scale as well as corporate scale users with a multitude of security features for you to take advantage of. A simple online search will reveal many names in this business. In case you need more information, please visit
