Pseudo-MIME is an add on to Pseudo-Mail that ensures email is encrypted end-to-end while in transit and while in storage.
Pseudo-Mail, like other webmail services, encrypts email over the Internet using HTTPS. HTTPS has been the security standard for the Internet for over 20 years, is extremely secure and protects data when it is in transit from the web browser to the web server. When using a webmail system and HTTPS, your emails are encrypted and secure from your browser to the server.
Data sent over the Internet using HTTPS is 100% secure while in transit across the Internet. However, many are worried about the security of their emails in storage. Pseudo-Mail, as well as other webmail services, have access to email stored on our servers. Controls are in place to protect the confidentiality of those emails. However, there is still the potential for disclosure of those emails.
Pseudo-MIME is an add on to Pseudo-Mail that ensures email is encrypted in transit end-to-end and while in storage. Using the strongest cryptography available, Pseudo-MIME encrypts email before it leaves your desktop or device. Those emails are protected as they travel the Internet and while in storage - temporary or on a long term basis. Only the intended recipient that also supports Pseudo-MIME can decrypt their messages.
In addition to protecting email from being read, Pseudo-MIME protects messages from being changed. Pseudo-MIME can detect if an email has changed since it was sent and alert the recipient. Pseudo-MIME, and the underlying technologies, are considered the gold standard for email security.
