In compliance with HIPAA and TTUHSC IT security guidelines, a new email encryption service has been implemented. IronPort's PostX SecureMail is easy-to-use, supports all email platforms and ensures that only the intended registered recipient can see the email's contents and attachments.
This new service gives the TTUHSC user control and the peace of mind that email sent outside the TTUHSC domain will be protected. Once an encrypted email is sent, the only copy, outside of TTUHSC, is stored on the recipient's email server or client. PostX SecureMail simply provides the recipient a key to open the encrypted email.
