Gmail Just Now Catching Up to PSMail's Encryption Practices

Google has started a transparency report to announce to the public the current encryption status of email. It shows how many email providers do not encrypt messages while in transit (basically while on the network). In contrast, PSMail has been providing network encryption since 2002.  This is true even for email transport to external providers whenever possible.

Using BoxCryptor with PSMail Cabinet

BoxCryptor is a solution to help protect your online files (such as the ones in PSMail's Cabinet) with additional encryption on a per folder basis.  Although PSMail encrypts both the network communications and data on the filesystem, you may have sensitive data for which you would like additional encryption using "EncFS" standard. This data can be encrypted and managed via a friendly and portable application like BoxCryptor,  which alows you to access the data on multiple computers, mobile phones, and/or tablets and secures it with strong encryption that's released via a password.
