In today’s digital age, security is paramount for any organization, regardless of its size and scope.

This is where encryption technologies come into play, providing an added level of protection to sensitive data. But with the advent of cloud technology and the increasing need for remote accessibility, many organizations are looking to migrate their encryption tools to the cloud.

This is where Echoworx comes in to help CISOs and IT Managers to migrate on-premises PGP to the cloud. In this blog post, we’ll explore how Echoworx accomplishes this migration process and why it’s a smart decision for your organization.

Before delving into the steps for migrating PGP to the cloud, it’s important to assess your organization’s current encryption needs. To facilitate this process, Echoworx has a team of experts who will work closely with your team to understand your current encryption environment. This includes an evaluation of the types of encryption keys in use and the encryption methods that are currently employed. By having a clear understanding of your current setup, our team can plan the migration process effectively.

Once this assessment is completed, you’ll be ready to migrate your PGP to the cloud.

Here are the three easy steps to migrate on-premises PGP to Echoworx cloud-based encryption:

  1. Upload your existing keys:
    To ensure that none of your existing credentials are lost, upload them individually or in bulk into the Echoworx email encryption console. This includes keys for internal users and public certificates for external users.
  2. Invite users:
    Invite your users to upload their public or private key pair using individual or bulk invites. This ensures that the transition is smooth and that all users can continue using PGP without any disruptions.
  3. Update email routing:
    The final step is to update email routing. Use a DLP or routing appliance to route emails to the Echoworx email encryption platform. For existing PGP users, endpoint encryption steps remain the same.

And that’s it! With these simple steps, you can migrate your entire PGP key database into the Echoworx email encryption platform without any complications.

As a CISO, you’ll be happy to know that private PGP keys are automatically managed with Echoworx. Our platform offers autokey generation for any sender if no private key is found, and automatic rollover is enabled for keys that are set to expire. This level of automation streamlines key management while reducing maintenance and overheads usually required for this task. With Echoworx, you can trust that your private PGP keys are always up-to-date and secure.

In conclusion, migrating to the Echoworx email encryption platform is a seamless process that can greatly improve your organization’s email security. By following the simple steps outlined earlier, you can migrate your entire PGP key database without any complications.

Additionally, Echoworx ensures the highest levels of security by implementing advanced multi-factor authentication and other appropriate controls. This means that only authorized users have access to the encryption keys needed to decrypt sensitive data. So why wait?
