TLS Server-to-Server Email Encryption

TLS is a delivery method that encrypts communications between two email servers by first having each mail server authenticate to the other, making it harder to send spoofed email. Then, the contents of the emails sent between the two servers is encrypted email, protecting messsages while in transit. The encryption itself remains totally transparent to both sender and recipient.


Park and Pull Encrypted Email Service

ePrism Encryption Service includes park and pull technology designed to provide secure communication between the sender and the recipient of messages, even individuals outside and unrelated to your organization. Encrypted email can be routed based on a variety of rules leveraging ePrism's email filtering technology. Park and pull encryption is enhanced by ePrism DLP so that encryption can be triggered by DLP violations. Unlike end-to-end email encryption software, the park and pull technique does not require the installation of any software by the sender, recipient or on the email hosts of either. Nor does it require an encryption key to deliver the email. 

How Park and Pull Encryption Works

  1. The message originator sends an email that is designated to be encrypted whether automatic per rules or manual per user.
  2. Encrypted sent messages are stored on ePrism's secured encrypted email message portal
  3. A notification message is sent to all recipients containing a link that takes the recipient to the secured Web page where the encrypted email can be viewed and other actions taken.
  4. Recipients are identified by registering just once, after which they have a secured portal and can take action with their encrypted email to read, reply, delete, forward, save or print it.
