Rebel Boy Media Enhances Client Security with Proton Mail

Rebel Boy Media Elevates Client Security with Proton Mail

At Rebel Boy Media, we are dedicated to constantly improving the security of our communications and our website to protect our clients' sensitive information. As a video production company, we often handle confidential messages and documents, and we understand the importance of keeping this data safe. To enhance our security measures, we have moved to Proton Mail, a leading secure email provider known for its robust end-to-end encryption.

Commitment to Client Data Security

Our transition to Proton Mail is part of our ongoing effort to provide top-tier security for our clients. Traditional email services are notoriously insecure, making them vulnerable to interception and unauthorized access. To mitigate these risks, we have adopted Proton Mail, which offers zero-access encryption and end-to-end encryption. This means that only the sender and recipient can read the email content, and not even Proton Mail can access it.

Enhanced Security Features

  • End-to-End Encryption: Proton Mail encrypts emails on our devices and mail server, and decrypts them only on the recipient’s device, ensuring that the email content is protected throughout its journey.
  • Zero-Access Architecture: This feature ensures that Proton Mail cannot decrypt or access your emails, safeguarding the privacy and security of our communications.
  • Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Proton Mail supports strong 2FA methods, such as hardware security keys, which add an additional layer of security to prevent unauthorized access to your account.
  • Enhanced Privacy Protections: Located in Switzerland, Proton Mail benefits from stringent privacy laws that protect user data from intrusive surveillance and data requests.

Comparing Insecure Email to Our Secure Measures

Traditional email services, such as Gmail and Yahoo Mail, often lack robust security measures, making them susceptible to hacking, phishing, and data breaches. Emails sent through these services can be intercepted during transit or accessed by third parties, including the email providers themselves, who may use this data for advertising purposes.

In contrast, Proton Mail’s security features ensure that:

  • Emails are encrypted before they leave our devices and can only be decrypted by the intended recipient.
  • Proton Mail cannot access or read our emails due to zero-access encryption.
  • Our data is protected by strong Swiss privacy laws, preventing unauthorized data requests.

By implementing Proton Mail, we provide our clients with peace of mind, knowing that their sensitive information is secure. This includes all emails sent through our website, such as quote requests, contact forms, and support ticket emails, which are now encrypted via Proton Mail. We have coded our server in-house to integrate seamlessly with Proton Mail, ensuring a direct and encrypted connection with the highest level of security.

Secure Communication with Non-Proton Mail Users

We recognise that not all of our clients may use secure email servers. To address this, Proton Mail allows us to send encrypted emails to non-Proton Mail users with the added security of password protection. This ensures that only the intended recipient, with the provided password, can access the email content. This feature is particularly useful for sending sensitive information securely, even if the recipient's email server is not as secure.

Continued Commitment to Secure Hosting

While Proton Mail secures our email communications, we continue to maintain our secure dedicated server for our website and client files. This comprehensive approach to security ensures that all aspects of our clients' interactions with Rebel Boy Media are protected.

Our decision to use Proton Mail reflects our commitment to offering the best possible protection for our clients.
