Most people feel safer than they really are when it comes to sending things over the internet and cell networks. Sending passwords, credit card information, social security numbers and other personal data by email, text message or apple’s airdrop are not secure ways to send information. They can be hijacked and the information inside is not encrypted. The safest way to send information is over the phone or in person.
There are methods to secure this data which include email encryption, file encryption and Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnel technologies. All of which PTS can help you accomplish. PTS offers email encryption with our Primary Email Queueing (PEQ) managed service which is an email filter that also catches SPAM and reduces the number of viruses that come in by email. PTS offers a router with highly secure encrypted VPN tunnel technologies through our managed security agreements and can assist with the setup of many file encryption technologies.
