From criminal histories to fingerprints and other highly confidential information , U.S. law enforcement agencies rely on vast amounts of FBI data to solve crimes. Access to this data requires strict adherence to the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) security policy, which mandates rigorous protection measures. Ensuring these security protocols are upheld as strictly in the cloud as they are in physical data centers has been a significant barrier for law enforcement agencies moving to cloud solutions. PreVeil’s encrypted file-sharing and email service offers a breakthrough solution, providing simple yet secure communication tools that not only meet but exceed these rigorous standards.

The Need for Robust Security in Data Access

Law enforcement’s slow adoption of cloud technology primarily stems from the complexities of enforcing CJIS security standards in a virtual environment. PreVeil’s system, built upon the secure and reliable infrastructure of Amazon Web Services, addresses these concerns head-on. It offers end-to-end encrypted email and file storage and sharing capabilities, ensuring that sensitive data remains protected across all points of communication and storage.

Unmatched Compliance and Security with PreVeil

PreVeil doesn’t just promise security; it delivers an unparalleled level of compliance and protection. Its architecture incorporates:

  • End-to-End Encryption: Every piece of data is encrypted from the moment it leaves the sender until it is decrypted by the intended recipient. This strict protocol ensures that not even PreVeil itself has access to the data, enhancing privacy and security for all communications and stored information.
  • Passwordless Authentication: This feature eliminates the vulnerabilities associated with password-based systems, bolstering security against phishing and other cyberattacks.
  • Admin-Proof Security via Approval Group Technology: PreVeil enhances security through its unique Approval Group Technology, which distributes trust cryptographically among a group of predetermined admins and approvers. Even if a single admin is compromised, sensitive data remains protected because access to decrypted data requires approval from a predetermined number of approvers within the group—akin to a nuclear launch protocol requiring multiple key holders. This ensures robust security even in the event of partial breaches.
  • Cryptographically Enforced Trusted Communities: Access controls within PreVeil are not just stringent; they are cryptographically enforced, ensuring that only verified members of designated communities can access sensitive information. This cryptographic enforcement adds an additional layer of security, making unauthorized access practically impossible.
  • Logs and E-discovery: One of the critical aspects of complying with the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Security Policy is maintaining comprehensive and secure logs for auditing and e-discovery purposes. PreVeil excels in this area by offering detailed, tamperproof, and cryptographically protected logs and e-discovery capabilities.

PreVeil’s commitment to security surpasses even the rigorous standards set by CJIS. As the leading system used by defense contractors to meet Department of Defense (DoD) requirements, PreVeil demonstrates unmatched reliability and security. Our platform’s compliance with multiple federal standards, including FedRAMP Moderate Equivalence and FIPS-validated encryption, is a testament to our advanced security measures.

Law enforcement personnel can effortlessly send and receive emails and share files, requiring minimal training to effectively navigate the system. Importantly, PreVeil supports secure and compliant access on both computers and mobile devices, enhancing flexibility for officers in the field who require immediate access to sensitive information.

PreVeil Drive and Email

PreVeil Drive offers a robust file storage and sharing solution that seamlessly integrates into PC and Mac file systems, similar to OneDrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox, but with the added security of end-to-end encryption. This feature supports a wide range of file types and sizes, making it suitable for all the varied needs of law enforcement, from storing large video files to sensitive documents. The drive also features version control and secure sharing options, which enhance collaboration among teams while maintaining strict security controls.

PreVeil Email redefines secure communication for law enforcement agencies. Utilizing their existing email addresses, users experience seamless integration with familiar applications like Outlook, Gmail, and Apple Mail, maintaining a familiar look and feel. This minimizes the learning curve and facilitates smoother adoption within agencies. Automatic encryption of attachments and comprehensive security for all forms of communication ensure that contents remain confidential and tamper-proof.

Ease of Deployment and Affordability

PreVeil stands out not only for its robust security features but also for its ease of deployment and cost-effectiveness. The system can be deployed within hours alongside existing Office 365, Google Workspace, or on-premise Exchange environments without any disruption. This seamless integration ensures that organizations can adopt PreVeil without any impact on their current operations, making it an ideal choice for those looking to enhance their security posture quickly and efficiently.

Moreover, PreVeil’s freemium model allows third parties to adopt the system effortlessly in minutes, enabling secure and compliant communication. This model is particularly advantageous as it allows agencies to extend secure communications to partners and other external parties without incurring additional costs, thereby fostering collaboration while ensuring compliance and security.


PreVeil’s integration of state-of-the-art security features, comprehensive compliance, and user-centric design makes it an indispensable tool for law enforcement agencies. With PreVeil Email and Drive, these agencies can meet the stringent requirements of the CJIS security policy while embracing the benefits of modern cloud technology.
