Dataguard epay secure payslips by email

We maintain a careful eye on innovative software that helps our clients keep their data safe. We came across Dataguard epay when looking into ways that data could be sent securely via email, in a simple, affordable and scalable manner.  Traditional e-mail has the confidentiality level of a postcard. Any actor involved in its transport can easily read it. Dataguard epay offers a way to transform a payslip into a confidential and auditable electronic letter, and it all works using your existing e-mail address.

Dataguard epay can halve the cost of paper payslips, and is fully approved by Mastercard.

We thought that everyone these days uses portal based epayment services, but it turns out that paper payslips are still very much in use due to the costs from epayment service providers. This market is being disrupted by a third alternative, which provides a mechanism for emailing an encrypted PDF payslip.

The 256-bit AES encryption is practically unbreakable and the software ensures that only the designated recipient can open the PDF.   Payslips that are printed, or sent as PDF’s with or without passwords are not secure. Encrypting emails meets your obligations under Article 32 of the GDPR to ‘ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk’.

As authorised resellers of Dataguard epay, we can now offer this great solution to securely sending payslips in an encrypted email. Sending payslips may be the starting point for adoption, but you can also use it in other situations where it is important to protect the transmission of personal data, such as:

  • Sending P60, P11D or other confidential PAYE related information
  • Issuing contracts, confidentiality agreements or other confidential employment related information
  • Handling other sensitive pay and conditions communications between the employer and employee

Dataguard epay is really easy to set up, and you could be ready to go in less than a day!  You can have the solution installed on premise, or if you want it provisioned as a hosted solution we can offer this capability as well.  The really great thing about Dataguard epay is that you only pay for what you send, so the ROI is very compelling!  Click the button below to hear about pricing, arrange for an online demo, and see for yourself.
