Office 365 message encryption service is now generally available

Office 365 Message Encryption, announced last fall, is now rolling out. The service lets you send encrypted emails to anyone.

To start using the message encryption service immediately, you can purchase a subscription for Windows Azure Rights Management. Windows Azure Rights Management is already included with Office 365 Enterprise E3 and E4, so if you’re licensed for one of those plans, you automatically have access to Office 365 Message Encryption, writes Shobhit Sahay on the Office Blogs.

Users who have an existing subscription to Office 365 E3, Office 365 E4, or Windows Azure Rights Management will begin to see the Message Encryption service light up.

If you’re using Exchange Server 2013, you’ll be able to access Office 365 Message Encryption, too, either by using Exchange Online Protection or by using hybrid mail-flow, Sahay writes.
