What are the main issues that stand in the way of you as an organization to provide complete email security? Read ahead to understand.

Email is the most popular method of communication — almost the lifeline of any organization. It took over letter-writing and fax machines within no time because of its efficiency and ability to incite a quick response in urgent situations. However, with time, organizations have started noticing the security gaps created by emails. The most important one is that despite the security protocols applied, the information in an email is completely unprotected and vulnerable. This critical caveat has led email to become the Achille’s Heel of any organization.

A company’s HR department sends salary slips to every employee via email. Due to an error, an email containing the salary slip of the CEO gets emailed to a large distribution list.

If only this organization had Seclore EDRM installed, the HR executive would protect the document with Seclore before sending it; and this fiasco would be avoided. …

GDPR is the biggest change to data protection ever. Not only does it build upon the European data protection requirements that were already in place regionally, but the extraterritorial nature of this law means that it is not just companies in Europe who are busily implementing changes to their systems and business practises to ensure compliance.

GDPR is extraterritorial, this means that companies in countries outside of Europe are finding themselves having to comply

Preparation for GDPR Seclore

Any company irrespective of their location, who processes the data of those who reside in Europe must process that data in accordance with the GDPR or…


As the amount of sensitive information being shared internally across business units and with external third parties grows exponentially, organizations are looking for solutions that will protect documents, wherever they travel, and even while they are being utilized.

Traditional security solutions, including email and file encryption are not enough to protect files. Once a recipient receives the file, it must be decrypted in order for individuals to do their work, meaning the sender has lost all control. And that ‘last mile’ is where many security breaches occur.

The other challenge with traditional security solutions is that the organization cannot revoke…

Who doesn’t enjoy a little bit of salacious information? Everyday the news outlets are bending our ear. We are human by all means, but leaked emails with sensitive information are costing jobs, influencing elections, impacting corporations financially and who knows what’s next. For example, Sony’s leaked emails cost producer Amy Pascal her job. Democratic National Convention leaked emails cost Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job. And SalesForce sent an internal presentation to board members with M&A targets that got hacked in email. It made negotiations harder for Salesforce.
