As soon as you start using Voltage SecureMail, you’ll realise it has far more features that you probably need. However, these are flexible and customisable so you can just concentrate on features that you want to use the most. You can use it to send and receive email from your desktop computer, cloud-based webmail and mobile platforms. Voltage provides a mobile email app for iOS, Blackberry and Android smartphones.


Sending encrypted emails is easy, using Voltage’s one-click email encryption. If you also install the Outlook or Outlook Express plug-in, this will automatically encrypt emails for you so you don’t have to do anything extra. A useful feature is being able to set policy restrictions on how the email is handled at its destination, for example by restricting forwarding it to other people. Recipients can decrypt emails by self-registering to use the Zero Download Messenger programme.


If you’re in the UK, one of the negatives of the Voltage SecureMail software is that Voltage’s main customer base is the American market and therefore it meets American compliance laws, offering customised help and support to American clients. Also, it is easy to get lost in the range of packages that Voltage offers and work out which one is right for your needs. However, using the free trial version can help with this.


Overall, Voltage SecureMail provides secure email encryption, is compatible with a wide range of hardware and integrates with most business applications. It supports one-click and policy-based email encryption and includes numerous reporting options. Voltage SecureMail email encryption is a secure option for businesses of all sizes and offers affordable yearly online plans for individuals. If you are looking for an email encryption package that will merge easily into your current network, Voltage is worth trialling. Voltage SecureMail is a complete solution that is proven and flexible.
