How does it work?


As an administrator, you can create and apply custom rules to users under your plan.

These rules apply a pre-determined result (e.g. – encrypt the message content) if a certain condition is met (e.g. – the email contains sensitive content).

Every email sent with Trustifi is scanned and analyzed according to its different components:

  • Sender
  • Recipients
  • Subject
  • Body
  • Attachments

If any of these components match the condition set in any of the rules, the pre-determined result will be applied to the email.



Similarly to rules, policies can also be applied by administrators across all plan users.

These policies allow you to enable certain email protection methods (e.g. – require Multi-Factor Authentication) to all sent emails.

Differently from rules, these policies do not require a certain condition to be activated – if a policy is enabled, it will be applied to all outgoing Trustifi emails.
