SecureLine End-to-End Email Encryption: Easier than Ever!

Friday, May 25th, 2012

LuxSci’s SecureLine Email Encryption service enables LuxSci users to send secure email messages  to anyone with an email address.  It supports a combination of different message encryption mechanisms to handle different types of recipients and sender encryption strength requirements:

  • SMTP TLS – for server-to-server transport encryption with recipients whose servers support TLS
  • PGP and S/MIME – for customers who require higher levels of messages security through certificates
  • Escrow – where recipients can pick up their waiting message from our secure portal

We find that a majority of our customers’ SecureLine messages prefer the Escrow system of secure message pickup because most customers don’t require the extra security and hassle of PGP or S/MIME.  Another consideration is that either TLS is not supported for most recipients or many customers require some level of recipient identity verification — beyond the fact that they “have access to their email”.

LuxSci has augmented the Escrow service so that it can now send to any recipient without any setup or input by the sender.  Customers using SecureLine encryption can now just “start sending” and it will “just work”.
