Los Angeles, California — December 15, 2015 — With the increase in hacker sophistication affecting lawyers and other professional services organizations, The Florida Bar has approved RMail® by RPost as a member benefit.  RPost is in the process of educating Florida attorney-members and paralegals about today’s need for email encryption. Through The Florida Bar Member Benefit Program, RPost offers RMail as an all-in-one email extension for security, compliance, and productivity. RMail is an add-in for Microsoft Outlook and Gmail, the two main email platforms used by Florida attorneys.

“We believe cyber security is constantly changing and is one of the areas where our members need continuous education; with RPost, members receive a timely member benefit,” said Terry Hill, Director, Programs Division of The Florida Bar. RMail adds a new “Send Registered” button next to the normal “Send” button in the email compose window. Clicking the “Send Registered” button adds options to encrypt, track email opens, certify e-delivery proof, send documents for e-signature, transfer large files, and more.

“When one is obligated to protect clients, it is imperative to consider closing a major risk from inadvertent client data exposure,” adds RPost CEO Zafar Khan. “One breach can cause irreparable client harm. RPost’s RMail service is easy for lawyers, clients, and their staffs to use to close this risk gap.” RMail includes Registered Email™ certified e-delivery services and simple-to-use encryption. RMail works with any existing email address and sends to any recipient, without the need for extra software or downloads. RPost has won the World Mail Award for “Best in Security” and is endorsed by many prominent trade associations.

The education campaign includes “RPost Tech Essentials,” a series of emails and online videos educating members about best practices for secure and certified email communications. The Florida Bar is one of the five largest state bars in the United States.
