The Problem is Human Error

Accidental data loss due to human error is one of the most common causes of data breach, often simply due to misdirected email.

Have you ever mistakenly sent an email to the wrong person? A misaddressed email can be embarrassing, but misaddressed emails containing sensitive information can be even worse. Data breaches caused by misaddressed emails can result in regulatory non-compliance, costly fines, and may even require litigation.

Confirm external recipients and attachments in Microsoft Outlook when sending emails.

VIPRE SafeSend is an Outlook and OWA add-in that prevents misaddressed emails or inadvertent auto complete email mistakes. VIPRE SafeSend requires the user to confirm external recipients and file attachments before an email can be sent.

VIPRE SafeSend also scans outgoing emails and attachments to make sure sensitive data does not leave your network. Build your own DLP rules to detect sensitive keywords or data patterns. With regular expressions, detect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or any kind of structured data.
