What Is Email Encryption? | GoDaddy

Learn what email encryption is and how it keeps sensitive information safe. GoDaddy partners with Proofpoint to offer your business this protection. Visit:

Your Office 365 email is safe sitting on our servers; but what about when it’s in transit? Watch this video to learn how GoDaddy email encryption protects your data between sender and recipient.

The accessible nature of the Internet means between send and receipt, an email message is always at risk for interception. But even more often, emails are just sent to the wrong recipient. No big deal if you’re emailing a recipe to your Aunt.

But what if you’re an attorney sending a contract to a client, or an insurance broker providing policy and premium details to a customer? Since most emails are sent unencrypted, or in plain text, an intercepted or misdirected email in these situations can create big problems for both parties.

Email encryption encodes the contents of an email in a special way during transit, which can only be decoded with a unique cypher. To decipher the message, the email recipient must to log into a portal to view it. So if a message is intercepted or just ends up in the wrong hands, unauthorized parties cannot read its contents.

GoDaddy has partnered with Proofpoint to offer an email encryption add on to your GoDaddy Office 365 email account for a monthly fee. This solution uses the same 256-bit encryption technology employed by some of the largest banks and corporations to protect their valuable data.

While email encryption is a great add-on for anyone who sends sensitive information over the Internet, it’s a critical requirement for businesses in regulated industries
For financial services, insurance, health care, legal, and real estate businesses, email encryption is a necessity to ensure they meet or exceed their industry’s prescribed level of protection for customer information.

Whether your business is part of a regulated industry, or you just want an extra safeguard when sending sensitive data via email, adding encryption to your GoDaddy Office 365 account is great way to ensure your emails are ONLY read by the intended recipient.

What Is an SSL Certificate? Do You Need One?

What Is an SSL Certificate and Do You Need One?✅Read about it here ➜

SSL certificates are quickly becoming the fabric of the new web. It helps ensure that the web has a base level of privacy and integrity while ensuring that information is transferred from point A to point B securely. It’s one of the core tenants of security for any modern website.

00:26 – What is an SSL?
00:40 – Explain encryption
01:40 – Google and SSL
03:10 – What is the difference between paid SSLs and free SSLs?
03:46 – Different types of SSL certificates
05:04 – Should all websites have an SSL?

First things first, what is SSL, exactly? “SSL” is short for Secure Sockets Layer. In simpler terms, it’s how small businesses communicate with customers that they can browse, buy products or services, and share information safely online. Without getting overly technical, adding an SSL creates a safe connection for those kinds of activities.

Think of an SSL certificate as a giant windshield for when you drive on the information super-highway. You wouldn’t head out on your local freeway, especially at night in a rural area, without something between you and all the bugs. You likely couldn’t see, and besides, you’ve already had your protein for breakfast. In much the same way, an SSL certificate protects your site, and its visitors, from many digital bugs, worms and other nasty web creatures.

Before quickly dismissing your site as “too small to be a target,” bear in mind that most interceptions are done electronically without a human deciding who is attacked. Do you plan to accept major credit cards online? Some web hosting companies, including GoDaddy, have terms of service requiring websites to be secured with an SSL before accepting credit cards. Besides, would you really want to put your customers at risk of having their credit card information stolen while shopping on your site? It’s not exactly a great way to attract repeat business.

There are other reasons, however, to add an SSL.

A major reason you might want to add an SSL certificate to your website is if any of your pages are password protected. This includes WordPress or Joomla! or other database-driven sites with a login page for the administrator. Membership sites with multiple logins also create more opportunities for black-hat hackers to attack. Remember, anything that needs to be secure online needs to operate under the safety net of an SSL certificate.

The web is filled with bots lurking around seeking poorly protected password pages to provide them access to your website. You don’t want to log on only to find your pages have been defaced or deleted. Not everyone collects money online. Some websites collect information. These could be leads for potential home buyers. Or questionnaires about your client’s employment history. Or anything. If you are collecting even the most basic information such as name, address, phone number and email address, chances are your clients would not want that information leaked.

Without an SSL certificate, some types of form mail can be intercepted. Some code is more reliable than others. Do you want to take chances that yours is susceptible to hacking?

Probably not.

The Journey is what everyday entrepreneurs, like you, need to follow in the pursuit of online success. Our experienced GoDaddy Guides are here to take you through all the steps, both big and small, that you encounter every day.
