REDDCRYPT provides enterprises and private persons with a particularly convenient and easy way of encrypting emails. In contrast to most other solutions in the field, REDDCRYPT does neither require the complex installation of S/MIME or PGP, nor the often tedious management of certificates. This makes email encryption accessible to non-tech-savvy users and allows for the secure exchange of emails between communication partners that have not used email encryption before.
In the introduction phase until 31.12.2019 REDDCRYPT - including the use of all apps - is completely free of cost. The universal and device-independent web app will always stay free of cost.
Automatic encryption and decryption in the background
Using REDDCRYPT is very easy. Upon registering with an email address and a password, an OpenPGP key pair is automatically generated (public & secret key). Before sending the email is encrypted by the system. If the recipient is also a REDDCRYPT user his/her public key is automatically used - exchanging keys beforehand is not necessary. If the recipient is not a user of REDDCRYPT yet, you will have to define a passphrase for this first mail with which the recipient can decrypt the mail. To make sure that only the intended recipient can read your email. you can disclose this passphrase to the recipient e.g. via sms or phone call. After a quick registration all REDDCRYT functions will be available to this new user. The defined passphrase is not needed for further communication as the encryption and decryption takes place in the background.
Flexible use: Outlook plugin, smartphone apps and Windows app
REDDCRYPT can be used from every computer and from every mobile device with the web app and offers the same functionalities as a typical web mailer. An Outlook plugin offers the additional user comfort as users do not have to leave their familiar mailing environment to encrypt and decrypt emails. Native apps for Android and iOS are available in the respective app stores. Furthermore a standalone Windows application is available that can be locally installed as a mail client.
Zero knowledge security: „Made in Germany“
REDDCRYPT has been developed by REDDOXX GmbH in Germany. Greatest emphasis was placed on data protection. Thus, REDDCRYPT has been designed as a zero knowledge solution: all sensitive information are fully encrypted before being transmitted. It is not possible for anyone - including REDDCRYPT - to access user emails. The individual password stays with the user ans is never transmitted.

„Everyone knows that email encryption is advisable and even necessary especially when communicating sensitive or personal information. For the majority of users the installation and handling of certificates were a major obstacle. Our idea behind REDDCRYPT is to provide a solution that makes email encryption accessible for everyone so that everyone can encrypt their emails easily and comfortably.“, says Christian Schröder, Head of Sales of REDDOXX GmbH.
