Virtru appears to meet the standards for following HIPAA regulations. Virtru provides data protection services that encrypt email and files to protect confidential patient health information (PHI). HIPAA defines specific technical standards for data encryption. Encryption protects files while they are in transit and at rest.
Additionally, Virtru provides administrative controls for managing emails, photos, videos, PDFs, and Office files. You can manage authorization to allow or disallow users to access specific content and types of content. Tracking and monitoring features provide real-time protection for patient information.
Other security features include forwarding restrictions and the ability to revoke messages after they are sent.
Virtru offers client-side email encryption if you’re using the plug-in with on-device encryption. When creating information on the device, the protection occurs immediately (before distribution). Advanced controls allow end-to-end encryption.
Virtru can integrate end-to-end encryption in Gmail. Virtru offers an extra layer of security to strengthen privacy controls after email leaves your inbox.
