Email has evolved into the most important business communications system in the world, enabling organizations to efficiently interact with customers, clients, and business partners. Unfortunately, unprotected email is sent over the Internet in clear text and poses a critical risk to an enterprise's most sensitive data: customer information, financial data, trade secrets, and other proprietary information. Exposure of this information can result in financial loss, legal ramifications, and brand damage.
PGP Desktop Email from Symantec provides enterprises with an automatic, transparent encryption solution for securing internal and external confidential email communications. Organizations can minimize the risk of a data breach and comply with partner and regulatory mandates for information security and privacy.
Powerful, end-to-end email encryption
PGP Desktop Email delivers all the encryption functionality necessary for protecting an organization's email communications in a single, easy-to-use and easy-to-manage solution. It enables organizations to automatically secure email communications from the sender's email client to the recipient's - and at all points in between - using centrally defined, policy-based encryption. PGP Desktop Email supports the major email security standards and interoperates seamlessly with most popular email security solutions used by recipients.
PGP encryption platform-enabled
PGP Desktop Email is a PGP encryption platform-enabled application. PGP Encryption Platform provides a strategic enterprise encryption framework for shared user management, policy, and provisioning, automated across multiple, integrated encryption applications. PGP Desktop Email can be used with PGP Universal Server to manage existing policies, users, keys, and configurations, expediting deployment and policy enforcement. PGP Desktop Email can also be used in combination with other PGP encryption applications to provide multiple layers of security.
Easy, automatic operation
Once deployed, PGP Desktop Email is transparent - users simply continue to work as usual. The software automatically protects messages in the background, ensuring that users never forget to secure email and attachments.
Enforced security policies
Email policies can be set based on sender, individual recipient, recipient domain, keyword, or content, enabling confidential messages to be secured automatically with no changes required to user behavior. Policy definitions can be set and audited using PGP Universal Server.
Used together, PGP Desktop Email and PGP Universal Server's unified management console establish, enforce, and update email security policy in real time. This combination reduces the time and effort required to deploy end-to-end email encryption.
Reduced operation costs
With PGP Desktop Email, no special training is required for end users. This approach accelerates deployment time, reduces training costs, and avoids help desk calls.
PGP universal server management
PGP Desktop Email can be centrally deployed and managed when used with PGP Universal Server, enabling organizations to easily set and enforce data security polices throughout the enterprise.
