Traven Watase founded Scholar’s App when he realized that the scholarship application process had a two-sided problem. Not only did students have a need to find and apply for scholarships, selection committees have problem sorting through applications to find the most qualified applicants.
Watase needed to be sure that he was protecting the sensitive personal information applicants and organizations were entrusting in Scholar’s App. To solve the problem, Watase turned to Paubox Encrypted Email.
With Paubox, Watase was able to securely communicate over email with military grade 256-bit AES encryption. Although other vendors could encrypt email, none were able to make it as seamless as Paubox. “They were able to deliver end-to-end encryption and I didn’t have to do anything different,” said Watase. “I just sent my emails like normal and everything was encrypted.”
As a result of using Paubox, Scholar’s App is able to collaborate with more organizations, including those that require a higher level of security. “Paubox is now giving us peace of mind that all the emails we send are secure,” said Watase.
