MailProtect provides several secure messaging options such as conventional encryption, including certificate management options. Instant Encryption is based on AES encryption and designed to meet security requirements for communication partners not running their own S/MIME or PGP Public / Private Key Infrastructure (PKI).
The Instant Encryption feature allows you send encrypted messages without using complicated PKI infrastructures.
Outgoing messages are converted to password protected PDF documents, using 256-bit AES encryption. The original contents of the message’s body will be removed after it has been successfully moved to the PDF document.
Files attached to a message will also be moved into the PDF file, from where they can be accessed and downloaded to your local hard drive. Depending on your configuration, the PDF document’s password is either sent to the intended recipient in a second e-mail or it may also be sent to the sender / recipient as a text message, directly to their mobile phones.
Upon frequent communication between two users, a permanent password may be used for PDF encryption. The email containing the agreed password is only sent once to either recipient. In case the password is lost, it may be requested for delivery using a link provided within the original encrypted message. This simple and secure way of e-mail communication can also be used on mobile devices.
