The Problem With Secure Email Encryption
- Businesses Must Meet Compliance Regulations. All businesses sending & receiving emails containing Personally Identifiable Information (PII) must be using email encryption. Specifically, healthcare-related organizations are required to meet HIPAA/HITECH standards. If they do not, they can be hit with penalties anywhere from a few thousand dollars to 1 million+ dollars. Most software vendors charge $1,000+ for their own Business Associates Agreement.
- Few Software Integrations & Poor Ease Of Use. With little or no software integrations – or high surcharges & fees for expanded integrations – the process to send & receive encrypted emails becomes an arduous one. Ease-of-use drastically declines for encryption products when software integrations do not exist.
- Minimal Messaging Options. A majority of secure email applications have a minimal number of messaging options and customizations, making it a much more difficult process to send an encrypted email message. Software vendors tend to charge extra fees for administrative privileges and co-branding abilities.
- Zero Customer Support. Many software vendors offer non-existent support teams, overseas support or hard to find phone numbers and contact information, as well as long SLAs which make for a poor customer support experience.
- Most Encryption Applications Are Cost-Prohibitive Or Corporate-Centric. Most encryption applications are extremely expensive and charge additional fees for limited secure accounts. Many of these vendors also tend to focus on larger corporate clients, which directly limits small-to-medium sized businesses.

You realized the only way to send email that met HIPAA/HITECH standards was if it was secure. You tried one email system, which worked fine for you—but the clients couldn’t open it (oops—they forgot to tell you). Your clients called tech support—but received zero response–even after a week. The company finally told you about the “add-ons” but it tripled the price. Ouch! So…
Then you switched to NeoCertified. Sending secure emails is now as easy as normal (just click the NeoCertified button within Outlook). Your clients receive a “pending message” email notification, follow the link to securely login—and have full access (including downloads if applicable). No HIPAA violations, no customer complaints, no hidden costs, plus the industry’s best support (if perchance you or your clients ever needed it). Life is good!
