is a powerful yet easy-to-use security program
for encrypting e-mails as well as files/folders. CenturionMail™

to open the encrypted email except the password. Microsoft®
Outlook® integration and administrator control tools make this
the perfect email encryption software for companies. And now

Email is how we do business,
bank, make consumer choices, read the news, and communicate
with the world. Many Internet users assume that the
information transmitted is as secure as a letter or as
private as a conversation between two people.
However, all electronic messages are sent through a vast
system of routers and servers. At points along this
path, email messages can be stored, and the contents of your
private conversations and business transactions can
potentially be retrieved, read, and used.
Every time you send email, you are putting your messages,
privacy, and trust into the hands of numerous nameless,
faceless individuals and organizations with no guidelines or
concern for your privacy or security.
Most email encryption programs are complicated to use -
particularly those that use public and private keys
(asymmetric encryption). CenturionMail™ uses
symmetric encryption* and is so easy to use that everyone can get the benefits of
being able to send secure emails. Plus your recipient
doesn't need the software to receive encrypted messages.
Unlike many other programs, with CenturionMail encrypted
emails stay encrypted even in the recipient´s mailbox
until they are decrypted. When the message is
closed, the email is encrypted again. This ensure that
email messages are secure not only while they are being
transported by the Internet but also while on your
- CenturionMail™ is NOT a
web-based service. When you encrypt email using a
web service, the email is transferred using the HTTP
protocol, and stored on their web server. With
CenturionMail™, your emails are always in your control
before they are encrypted and sent. Recent
events have confirmed that web-based encryption is not a secure way to
protect your emails.
- CenturionMail™ is reasonably
priced and includes a perpetual license to use the version
you purchase. Most other email encryption programs
require an annual subscription fee.
Self decrypting technology means that your recipient will be
able to decrypt your encrypted message without have to
download or install any software, nor will they need to
register for an encryption key. The encrypted part of
the email arrives in an email attachment which when opened
prompts them to enter your pre-agreed upon password.
When the enter the password, the information is decrypted
along with any text or files and folders you included.
you use Microsoft® Outlook® then sending an encrypted
message is even easier. It's all done by clicking one
button in Outlook before you send the message and entering a
password. All text and attachments will be
encrypted. It's that easy. But even if you don't
have Outlook®, CenturionMail™ is very easy to use and works
with your existing email program (POP3, SMTP, IMAP4)
including Outlook Express™
, Lotus Notes™
, and Eudora™
Why doesn't everyone use encryption?
The problem is generally ease of use - if encryption is too
difficult to use, understand, and is too time consuming - most
people will send emails unencrypted and hope for the best.
An organization may decide that certain types of documents
or information can only be sent by hard copy but then they
lose the speed and cost advantage of email.
Issues that need to be considered
when sending an encrypted email:
Is it easy to send?
Is it easy for the recipient to decrypt the message?
Does the recipient need to install or download any software?
Is the encryption secure?
CenturionMail™ provides an answer for these concerns:
is easy to use, often only adding one additional click to
sending an email. It is easy for the recipient to decrypt,
they need only run the attachment and enter the password. The recipient doesn't need to install or download any software,
except possibly an unzip program. The encryption is strong
and secure using 256 bit, open source, AES encryption.
