We turned to Virtru because we needed to send sensitive information via email. It had to be done in a way that was easy for both the sender and recipient and ideally within the confines of our corporate Gmail setup. The initial rollout was just for a couple of departments, and then it expanded to all departments needing the capability.
  • Encrypting email.
  • Sending files.
  • Logging.
  • Cost.
  • Re-authenticating periodically.
Of all the products out there that integrate with Google, we found Virtru to be the most user-friendly for both our users and the recipients. At the same time, its logging capabilities provide the trail we need for sensitive information. This is one tool for us that has generally been "setup and forget" which helps with the I.T. Dept workload.
  • Ease of use.
  • Encryption.
  • Logging.
  • Data is secured.
  • Audit trail.
  • Data can be safely be transferred electronically.
Full Gmail integration was not a negotiable item for us in our evaluation. Other products provided our needed functionality, but they were outside the standard Gmail interface. That made them more difficult to use, and also less likely to be used. Virtru was the only one we evaluated that actually resided within the Gmail interface, making it very easy to use.

We use Virtru to encrypt sensitive emails in a few different use cases. We can let the sender manually encrypt the email, or based on keywords in the email we suggest the user encrypt the email or we auto (force) encrypt the email. Virtru solution helps us to gain DLP capabilities in a simple and easy way.
  • Email encryption without installing or exchange keys with the recipient.
  • Email DLP that is easy to configure and maintain.
  • Application Gateway that encrypts email sent directly from SaaS application (ex. Zendesk, SalesForce).
  • Protect attachment with restriction like time, print, and copy.
  • Native Google Docs file encryption should be improved, it's working great in Google Drive but only for files that are not Google native.
Virtru is well suited for cloud base IT environments that can push the solution from a central management system (MDM). Also, it can fit companies who would like to get the solution (or start testing it) for groups in the company and not all the users. It might not fit for old fashion industries that need to be in compliance with regulations that force email encryption with a key exchange between the sender and recipient.
  • Email Encryption.
  • Application Email Encryption.
  • Email DLP.
  • Saving manual work and a few steps of the daily work of our reps. saving about 50 hours a month.
  • Ensuring customer sensitive info is protected.
  • Regulation compliance which would prevent us from doing business.

Our entire team uses Virtru to securely encrypt our email and our sensitive financial files. We use it internally as well as for communicating with our portfolio companies and investors. Virtru seamlessly integrates with our G Suite accounts and is much easier to use that traditional secure file systems or password protected email messaging tools. The Virtru team also offers a powerful API that we can use to build their encryption into software tools that we build or use internally in our work.
  • Easy set up via G Suite
  • Easy email protection and file encryption
  • GDPR compliance
  • Support for all AWS / Amazon services
  • Specialized functionality for sales teams
  • Easy one click integration with CRM tools
Virtru is the superior choice for any financial professional handling sensitive company financials or confidential information. It is especially helpful for busy professionals using G Suite or Office 365. We recommend it to all of our service providers, portfolio companies, investors, lawyers, administrators, and our peers. We find the pricing very reasonable and the set up is a breeze. The team is committed to the highest levels of performance.
  • Easy to use
  • Secured in confidence
  • GDPR ready

As a physical therapy clinic we need to have e-mail encryption end to end to transmit information to patients in a HIPAA compliant manner. Virtru does this and will sign a Business Associates Agreement (BAA) with us which is necessary for HIPAA compliance.
  • Simple plugin to chrome and gmail client
  • Lets me know when I am about to send information that I have not yet encrypted that should be.
  • Patients find it easy to use their end
  • Occasionally gets stuck if I attache a file before setting email to be encrypted.
Well suited for healthcare where HIPAA compliance is necessary
  • Keeps us compliant, reduces risk.
Others were far more expensive
