Due to significant fines, class-action lawsuits, NSA snooping, embarrassing corporate data breach disclosures and increased regulation, secure email communication has never been more important. Tools to protect (encrypt) email communications have historically been quite difficult to use for both sender and recipient, were cost prohibitive and required significant ongoing maintenance. IronBox has changed that with the introduction of IronBox for Microsoft Outlook.
"If you can send an email, you can use IronBox," says
The IronBox Outlook plugin is designed so that users with no encryption experience or skills can easily apply sophisticated security to their emails and attachments. To send an encrypted email, compose the email message as usual, including any attachments. When it is ready to send, simply click on the IronBox button, and it automatically encrypts the message.
IronBox for Microsoft Outlook also adds another security feature to limit exposure to unintended data breach. Riley continues, "Our existing clients are also very concerned about confidential data being inadvertently included in outgoing messages in an unsecure manner. To help prevent this type of data breach, IronBox uses our proprietary technology, named IronSight, to automatically scan all outgoing Outlook messages and attachments for known sensitive data and alerts the sender before the message is sent."

The free version also includes ongoing unlimited IronSight email scanning for email messages for most popular document types. A paid version is available for
