Exchange Hosted Encryption (EHE) is an email encryption service that allows users to quickly and easily send encrypted email messages to anyone without having to purchase or install hardware or software. It uses policy-based encryption, which means that messages gets encrypted/decrypted at the server based on policy rules that the administrator creates.
When talking to partners and customers about Exchange Hosted Encryption, I sometimes get questions about what the user experience is like for users sending and receiving encrypted email via EHE. Currently, there is no way to trial EHE so really no way for folks to get the experience themselves without purchasing.
After fielding some of these requests recently, I decided to create a quick EHE user experience demo which you can find below. It walks through what the user experience is like for sending and receiving encrypted emails through Exchange Hosted Encryption.
For more details on how Exchange Hosted Encryption works, see Exchange Hosted Email Encryption Service Subscription in FOPE. This article references FOPE, but rest assured that EHE also works with Microsoft’s new email filtering service called Exchange Online Protection (EOP). EOP is included in all Office 365 for business plans and can also be purchased separately for on-premises email systems.
For more details on how administrators create policy rules within Exchange Online Protection for use with EHE, see Enable Encryption and Decryption.
Hope this was helpful and thanks for reading!
Great share. Thanks Tim.
