What is XQ Secure Email and How Can I Set it Up?
XQ Secure Email allows you to encrypt and track messages and files from your Gmail & Outlook workflows.
This allows you to securely communicate sensitive data with colleagues and third parties, such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), sensitive financial information, passwords, etc.
Your data is encrypted before leaving your device and moving to the cloud, which makes it easy for employers to meet data privacy and compliance obligations.
How to Set Up Secure Email
