The government cannot read your protected emails and files unless it has both the files and the encryption key.
Virtru uses the most advanced encryption available, AES, using 256-bit keys. This encryption has been proven secure. The only way to read encrypted files is to have the encryption keys. Virtru doesn’t have access to the content of your emails, files, or other data — it only has the keys. Virtru won’t be able to read your content because it doesn’t have content — and others (including the government) will be unable to read your content because they won’t have the keys.
