Office 365 Encryption

Microsoft today announced the upcoming release of Office 365 Message Encryption, a new service that lets you send encrypted emails to people outside your company. You can now send sensitive business communications with an additional level of protection against unauthorized access.

Office 365 Message Encryption is the new version of Exchange Hosted Encryption (EHE) which includes all of the capabilities of EHE plus new features, such as the ability to apply your company’s branding to encrypted messages. Office 365 Message Encryption works with both Office 365 mailboxes and on-premises mailboxes.

Office 365 Message Encryption will be available as part of Windows Azure Rights Management. Office 365 Enterprise E3 and E4 users will get Office 365 Message Encryption at no extra cost. Office 365 Message Encryption will be available for purchase during the first quarter of 2014, and customers who are currently using Exchange Hosted Encryption (EHE) will be upgraded to Office 365 Message Encryption beginning in the same timeframe.
