Domino’s Pizza to encrypt emailsJuly 2, 2008 – 6:07 AM
Domino’s Pizza is to use Voltage Security’s Secure-mail encryption package to protect internal and external company e-mails.
The move is part of a corporate-wide data loss prevention initiative to avoid accidental loss of private or proprietary information, said Karl Anderson, network security manager for the pizza maker.
“We realised that e-mails being sent to partners and suppliers, such as insurance providers, may contain information like social security numbers that must be encrypted before sending,” he said.
Domino’s will encrypt e-mail between corporate headquarters in Ann Arbor and its 17 distribution centres across the US, and between key partners and suppliers.
Secure-mail will automatically flag e-mails with sensitive data and encrypt them automatically prior to sending. Recipients will be able to read protected messages without having to download and instal client software.
