Virtru can help educational institutions modernize their security to keep up with data privacy laws and regulations - including the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) - by ensuring sensitive information is protected, inside and outside your organization.
Virtru provides client-side encryption within a package that can work with the email provider you’re already using. There’s no complicated setup procedure, and there’s no need to spend weeks training your staff (or worse, your external recipients).
Virtru also has the added bonus of allowing your administrators, teachers, parents, and students to access their encrypted email whenever they have access to their own inboxes, giving them control of their secure information. Not only do they not have to worry about remembering separate portal credentials, but they also don’t have to worry about logging in through multiple gateways just to access past records.
Confidential information sent to colleagues, other institutions, and parents remains private, audit-ready, and protected. Once a student turns 18, Virtru can be used to rescind permission to previously sent emails, enabling students to have full control over who sees their records.
