What's M365's

email encryption?

Top tier Microsoft 365 plans (e.g., E5) offer customers access to Microsoft Purview Message Encryption (MPME), part of the Azure Information Protection (AIP) suite. It uses email encryption to reduce the chance of an email getting intercepted.

When 365 isn't enough

As the team at Microsoft say, AIP is only designed to be used "to prevent accidental misuse and is not a security boundary." It lacks the authentication capabilities required to ensure delivery to the intended recipient and Microsoft actively discourages the use of encryption at high volumes.

Regulatory compliance

Fulfil your obligations

Protect data in line with regulatory guidance

Encrypt personal information (GDPR)

The Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) require businesses to encrypt sensitive data transferred digitally. The ICO can levy fines of up to £17m for non-compliance (or 4% of turnover).

Record proof-of-delivery (MIFID II)

All businesses should record digital communications and retain proof-of-delivery to align with ICO guidance. Proof-of-receipt is also required by the FCA for certain types of document (e.g., KIDs).

Protect customers (Consumer Duty)

Are you encouraging customers to send their information into your business unsecured? The FCA's Consumer Duty is a mandate to provide easy-to-understand communications and protect customers from financial harm.


Mailock removes a lot of risk and GDPR concern..

... around dealing with everyone’s favourite communication method - email. We can send and receive our clients' information safely.
