We use trusted express mail and courier services whenever there is an urgent need to privately deliver documents.
After securely sealing the envelope, you pass it on to the service of your choice, trusting the courier with the delivery.
But why did you choose this particular service? What criteria did you consider before making the final decision?
The price? Perhaps a promise of speedy delivery? Or maybe the company’s reputation?
We all have our own reasons.
But this time, the envelope contains confidential information that you do not want to disclose, and one factor plays a critical role.
After all, once you hand over the envelope, you no longer have control over exactly how it is handled. It is only because of trust we are able to take this leap of faith.
We have to be sure that our message is in safe hands.
But can you trust email with your confidential information, as much as you would trust that proven courier service? Is safety a critical factor here?
Let’s figure it out.
There is no getting away from the need to exchange messages of corporate importance.
These messages are often sent using email. The content of these emails is strictly confidential and is meant only for the addressee.
The success of an important event, a major contract, or even the destiny of the entire company could be at stake.
Have you ever thought how the email reaches the recipient’s inbox? What happens when you send it? How is it transferred?
To some extent, email delivery is similar to the logistics of regular mail.
In both cases, there are up to a dozen different links that make the connection between the sender and the recipient. These links may vary from one service to another, but everything always starts with the sender requesting to send a message (or a package) and ends with the message delivered to the recipient’s door.
The weakest link in the transfer process takes effect immediately after you hand over the package to the courier.
At this exact moment, your package becomes the courier’s responsibility. It will be his job to deliver the package and verify the recipient when the item reaches its destination.
Once we choose a preferred mail service, we develop a certain relationship.
After a couple of successful deliveries, we are ready to make the final decision to stick with the service. It has earned our trust.
The next time we need to send another package, we will already have someone we trust. It is the logical choice to make.
On the contrary, email does not inspire confidence.
We can never be sure the message reaches its recipient’s Inbox, as it travels through dozens of digital ‘hands’ in the form of public mail relays. The emails can be intercepted, read, infected, and substituted by perpetrators to serve their ill intent, or get impacted by other dangers that may come from unprotected messages.
Just like the case with trusted express mail services, email too has existing solutions that ensure the privacy and security of your messages and prevent third parties from snooping.
StealthMail is one of them.
StealthMail is a multi-level military-grade software solution available as a Microsoft Outlook Add-in or a standalone application for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android.
The add-in solution is seamless for the user.
This means that your employees can continue to use Microsoft Outlook as their go-to mail application and send secure email through the simple add-in.
When sending a new email, the StealthMail add-in will encrypt its content and attachments, as well as create a dedicated crypto link. The content and attachments will be stored away in a secure company-controlled location and kept encrypted.
StealthMail will then email the Stealth-link to the recipient, which does not contain the original email content. The recipient will have to verify their identity before being given access to the secure email. The link only contains a certain address that points to the location where the actual content is kept. In this way, you do not directly transfer the content when sending the email, keeping your confidential information safe.
After you install the StealthMail add-in and log in, you can begin to exchange emails within the channel, secured to a military-grade standard. Parties safely exchange encrypted emails, which are decrypted only after their identities are verified.
It is important to understand that the entire correspondence takes place within the company’s controlled environment.
Thus, StealthMail verifies both the sender and the email recipient through a process similar to checking their passports. This identification guarantees that the email is delivered to the recipient it was intended to reach.
Reinforce the weakest link in your corporate security today.
