ZSentry OpenPGP

ZSentry OpenPGP (BETA)

ZSentry OpenPGP allows you to send and receive PGP-compliant messages using your Desktop Mail client (Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird), a Cloud app (Gmail, Google Apps), or your cell phone (any major brand). There is no installation or plugin. Includes automatic public-key and key certificate management.

Pricing: Currently available by invitation only.

Purpose: Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) is a computer program that provides cryptographic privacy and authentication. PGP is often used for signing, encrypting and decrypting email to increase the security of email communications. It was created by Philip Zimmermann in 1991. PGP-compliant products follow the OpenPGP Internet standard IETF RFC 4880.

PGP is one of the major encryption engines available today. Many users and corporations are ardent supporters and have significant investment commitment using PGP for protecting email.

ZSentry offers significant improvements in usability and security for secure email. ZSentry OpenPGP provides a compatible solution to conventional PGP secure email. ZSentry OpenPGP also improves the functionality of PGP solutions by adding the ZSentry document lifecycle control functions, such as self-destruct, Return Receipt, and other functions.

The critically-difficult points in PGP of key-signing, key and certificate management, key distribution, key validation, key revocation, and private-key protection, are handled automatically and securely by ZSentry OpenPGP. Your private-key, for example, is protected by using the ZSentry "no-target" technology, where the user-key is not stored anywhere, and only you can use it.

ZSentry OpenPGP assures unprecedented levels of usability and security while using PGP.

ZSentry OpenPGP works with any email application, address and provider that you already have, including Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Microsoft Live, Hotmail, and using your organization's own domain name. There is no installation or plugin.

How it Works: ZSentry OpenPGP is a Skin choice. After you choose the OpenPGP Skin, any email and attachments that you send using ZSentry OpenPGP (for example, from Outlook or Gmail, or using ZSentry App), are protected by encryption and authentication before transmission and will be delivered end-to-end encrypted by ZSentry as a secure email Zmail that is PGP-compliant. All you do is click Send in the Outlook, Apple Mail or Gmail screen. You receive PGP-compliant secure email Zmail at your Inbox, for example in Gmail or Google Apps, and read by clicking a link (also by copy-and-paste, or as the sender has defined).

Benefits:
  • ZSentry OpenPGP complies with HIPAA, HITECH Safe Harbor, GLBA, SOX, and financial regulations.
  • No HIPAA Business Associate Agreement to sign.
  • In enabling first-contact communication, ZSentry can be used as the common-reference trusted signer in a PGP web-of-trust, leveraging prior non-PGP communication (for example, using ZSentry native mode or PKI) to digitally sign adding a user to a PGP key ring. This is important because PGP standards require that the email addresses and the keys of both parties in communication must be present in trusted PGP digital certificates before secure communication can start.
  • ZSentry OpenPGP works seamlessly cross-platform for reading & replying, providing intuitive and secure one-click use Cloud apps, desktop mail clients, and cell phones. A first link is marked for web browsers (no setup); a second link opens in Desktop and Mobile Mail clients (may need setup).
  • ZSentry OpenPGP is a "no-target" technology that eliminates the online copy and storage of passwords, private-keys, and keys, thus eliminating major risk factors in protecting servers and clients against breaches due to penetration attacks.
  • ZSentry leapfrogs today's security solutions. Companies that could be nervous about safe-keeping their private-keys, which disclosure could compromise their emails and trade secrets, can use ZSentry's "no-target" technology to allay disclosure concerns due to breaches in local or online solutions.
  • The ZSentry SMTP server starts SSL before any data is exchanged, and never uses plaintext.
  • ZSentry OpenPGP uses two-factor authentication, and certifies both your Name and Email Address before a message is sent or read.
  • Encrypted Address Book with automatic key management.
