Bloor Urges Strategic Email Encryption

Research validates a comprehensive approach to securing email communications versus point solutions

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- PGP Corporation, a global leader in enterprise data protection, today announced that the findings of Bloor Research recommend enterprises take a strategic approach to email encryption. The Bloor brief, “The Strategic Importance of Email Encryption,” finds the potential risk to email communications growing.

According to the brief, the appropriate solution to defend against such risk is often a multi-tiered, “blended” approach, unlike point solutions frequently offered by all-in-one email hygiene appliances. This research validates the use of PGP® email encryption solutions, including PGP Universal™ Gateway Email and PGP® Desktop Email, both part of the award-winning PGP® Encryption Platform that enables enterprises to roll out encryption in phases as business requirements emerge and evolve.

“Email encryption cannot be addressed as a standalone proposition. It must be considered as part of an organization-wide encryption service that provides security for other applications and line-of-business solutions as well,” says Nigel Stanley, practice leader–security, of Bloor Research. “The email encryption solutions provided by PGP Corporation not only enable the multiple levels of email security enterprises need, but also address additional needs for encryption throughout the enterprise. The point approach offered by many email hygiene gateways is not a strategic approach to email encryption.”
