SPX Encryption - encryption you can use

Our patent-pending simple SPX Encryption is transparent, simple and requires no changes to user workflow. It doesn’t require clumsy and expensive key management or additional software. SPX Encryption simply encapsulates the email content and attachments into a secure encrypted PDF that can’t be hacked or cracked. But it allows users to view their encrypted email anywhere: in their preferred email client, in their webmail or on their mobile device.

Block spam, malware and phishing attacks

Our sophisticated email filtering protects users from the latest snowshoe spam, identity theft, password scams and more by looking for suspicious content, attachments or URLs. Support for Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) ensures spam and phishing attacks attempting to spoof legitimate sender domains are blocked. You can also block unwanted content and be sure our proven antivirus scanning is catching the latest threats.
