Why is regular e-mail so unsafe?
1) There is no encryption.
When a regular e-mail travels the Internet through multiple,
unknown servers, the contents are sent clear-text, vulnerable to
ease-dropping and sniffing. In addition those messages could be
stored on various servers for an indefinite amount to time. Do you
really want to shout your customers' private information in a
Protected Trust™ uses end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption,
so protected messages are encrypted before they leave the sender's
desktop, giving a very high level of security.
2) There is no authentication.
This means that one can send a message claiming to be whoever he
or she wants. Just because a message says it's from Mr. Smith,
doesn't mean that he actually composed the message. He may have no
idea that someone is forging his name and address.
Every user of the Protected Trust™ system must prove his
or her identity when sending or opening a protected message.
This ensures that only intended recipients can read a message, and
verifies who the message is from.
3) There is no certification.
Let's say Mr. Smith sends you an e-mail. With regular e-mail,
there is no way to confirm that when you receive the message that
the contents have not been changed.
Using digital signature hashes, Protected Trust™ verifies
that the contents of all messages have not been altered while in
Your unprotected e-mail could be
Sniffed, Forged, or Altered.
