SecureLine Message Center now Displays Sent Email

Friday, September 6th, 2013

Secure Sent EmailLuxSci’s SecureLine email encryption service enables our customers to send secure email messages to anyone with an email address.  Through the included “SecureSend” portal, it also allows anyone with an email address to send secure messages to our SecureLine users, for free.

With Private Label Branding, LuxSci customers can customize this experience, making the web interfaces look like their company and also enabling a feature called “Message Center“.  Message center allows the recipients of your SecureLine messages sent using the Escrow secure message pickup mechanism to be able to view and reply to all messages sent to them in the SecureSend portal — e.g. akin to an online Inbox of received secure messages.

LuxSci has extended the Message Center so that it now includes copies of messages sent by these users as well:

  1. Messages sent as replies to SecureLine Escrow messages received by them
  2. New messages sent directly from the SecureSend portal’s secure email composer

Going forward, people interacting with LuxSci’s SecureLine users through the free SecureSend system can return to the portal and read items that they have previously sent using the system, just like they can log in and review emails that they have received.

Enforcing and Detecting TLS Email Encryption on Inbound Messages

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

SMTP TLS allows email messages to be transmitted from the sender’s email server to the recipient’s over a secure channel that prevents eavesdropping.  TLS is an extremely useful and popular technology as it is seamless —  the sender and recipient do not have to do anything special — and provides a level of server-to-server security important for compliance, HIPAA, and privacy in general.

Use of SMTP TLS requires that both the sender’s and the recipient’s email servers support it.  For example, LuxSci’s servers support TLS and will “talk TLS” to any recipient server that also does.

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”.
