Email Hosted Encryption and Exchange Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Working with a customer interested in Office 365. One of the requirements is the assurance that any designated e-mail message(s) remain encrypted not only during transport from sender to recipient, but also when it is "at rest" and stored on the hosting e-mail server. Does Exchange Hosted Encryption subscription meet this requirement? How does EHE intgrate witrh Exchange Online?

    Thanks in advance.

  • EHE affects email sound OUT of the BPOS environment (specifically, though FOPE and out to the Internet).  If your requirement is to have this performed internally as well, then it will not work.  If it is only required for email sent to external parties, it will meet all your needs.  In order to access the email, the recipient will receive an encrypted email and will have to access a portal to read the email.

    Have a great day,
