Citrix ShareFile Now Enables Encryption From Outlook
Because the encryption works from within the inbox, emails can be securely exchanged without disrupting a user's standard processes.SAN FRANCISCO—Citrix is providing its ShareFile users with a way to encrypt and send sensitive business documents from Microsoft Outlook that it contends is easier and more time-saving than deploying a separate encryption service. Beginning April 24, ShareFile users can send encrypted emails from Outlook to secure the content of messages in compliance with industry regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for the health care industry. Because the encryption works from within the inbox, emails can be securely exchanged without disrupting a user's standard processes. This feature, designed for small and medium-sized organizations, is a separate function from Citrix's ShareFile Restricted StorageZones for enterprises.
Unlike most other file-sharing services, ShareFile addresses the security of both email text and attachments together. The capability is ideal for SMBs that handle sensitive information such as protected health information (PHI) or personally identifiable information (PII) in industries such as health care, accounting, financial services, insurance and legal.
