Upgrading our email platform to TLS 1.3

During a recent episode of the HIPAA Critical podcast, I talked about my temporary move to Alaska and how we’re upgrading Paubox to support TLS 1.3.
TLS 1.3 is the newest and most secure version of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. In essence, TLS 1.3 provides unparalleled privacy and performance compared to previous versions of TLS and non-encrypted SMTP email.
On that note and in conjunction with today’s 3rd Annual Paubox SECURE @ Home conference, I’m happy to announce Paubox now offers TLS 1.3 email encryption for all of its solutions.
Simply put, upgrading our email platform to support TLS 1.3 maintains our position as the market leader for HIPAA compliant email.
Coupled with our HITRUST CSF certification, customers can trust Paubox to provide them with seamless, secure, and compliant email solutions.
How do I take advantage of TLS 1.3?
If you’re a Paubox customer, you don’t have to do anything different to take advantage of TLS 1.3.
If you send encrypted email via Paubox, the platform will choose TLS 1.3 as its default encryption choice. This applies to Paubox Email Suite, Paubox Marketing, and Paubox Email API.
If you use Paubox for Inbound Email Security via Paubox Email Suite Plus or Premium, Paubox will also select TLS 1.3 as its default encryption choice for incoming email.
Do I have to pay more for TLS 1.3?
No. This is a free upgrade for our customers. For new customers, we have not raised our prices either.
