How To: Send Classified, Confidential Email over the Web

send_logo Send.™ is a free, easy-to-use email encryption service. It is Simple, Powerful & Secure way to send Top Secret information via email.

I don’t have much experience of sending encrypted emails, but as Send explains in the diagram below, it seems to be a cumbersome process.

What does Send.™ has to say :
It’s not that there aren’t other secure methods to send an email… It’s just that they’re too hard to use. We think everyone should be able to send a secure email…and we all have better things to do than spend an afternoon installing and configuring an encryption solution.

We don’t require you to maintain encryption keys – Though we think the public/private key method works, we also think it was created for geeks and technicians.

Send is compatible with all email solutions including web mail – Anyone with a browser and an internet connection can use Send.™ and, unlike other available solutions, Send requires no software downloads or additional system configuration.

The service is easy to use – We created Send because the previous process for sending secure messages was too difficult. Our studies suggest that people will not send encrypted messages if the process is even marginally more difficult than normal. Simply put…security is important, but cannot impede productivity.

Using Send for delivering an encrypted message is incredibly easy. Here’s how it works:
1. On Sendinc.com, enter your email address, your recipients, a subject, your message, and any attachments (Max size allowed is 10MB) .

2. If this is the first time you are using the service, Send will require you to verify the sender address by sending you a confirmation message. You’ll also have to setup a password for using that account in the future.

3. Send your message

4. Recipients will receive the message and be required to open an attachment, which contains the encrypted message.

5. From the attachment, recipients click-thru back to Send, where they’ll also have to create an account.

6. Send decrypts the message and shows the contents to the recipient.

Simple enough! So start using Send.™
