Email Encryption at BB&T

Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES) is a web-based email program hosted by Cisco IronPort Systems, an industry-leading email security provider. CRES allows BB&T to securely send messages protected by strong digital encryption, and you to reply to us securely.

How does Cisco Registered Envelope Service protect my confidential information?
There are two components to how Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES) protects your confidential information:

  1. Electronic encryption - All messages are transmitted by a secure encrypted connection between your web browser and CRES. Any information shared through this connection cannot be viewed by others.
  2. Secure passwords - Your information is protected by a password created by you and known only to you. You will create this password the first time you receive a secure message from BB&T via CRES. Before choosing a password, we recommend that you learn about creating strong passwords.

How can I ensure that an email I receive is actually from BB&T?
Each Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES) message you receive from BB&T contains a number of components designed to help identify messages as legitimate:

  • Since CRES is hosted by Cisco, you will receive a Cisco secure email notification similar to the one shown below:
  • The email address of the BB&T sender will be clearly displayed at the top of the message. You can email the sender with non-confidential information to confirm they sent you a secure email.
  • Links contained in CRES messages will take you directly to the Cisco Registered Envelope Service logon page. You will never be asked to provide information other than your name, email address and your password in a CRES message. If you receive an email asking for any other information, or if the links in the email direct you to a site other than the CRES logon page, delete the email.
  • Additional information on CRES is available from Cisco using the following link: http://www.cisco.com/web/ironport/docs/cres_recipient_info.pdf

I clicked the securedoc.html link in the CRES Secure Message notification message and I was asked to register with Cisco Registered Envelope Service. What do I do next?

Why am I prompted for a password when I attempt to access a secure message? I don’t remember creating an account to access Cisco Registered Envelope Service messages from BB&T.
It’s possible that you may have previously registered with Cisco Registered Envelope Services (CRES) after receiving an email from another sender. Since CRES is a hosted solution through CISCO, your CRES password would be the same when accessing messages from BB&T or other senders using the service.

I don’t remember my Cisco Registered Envelope Service password. What should I do?
Cisco Registered Envelope Service (CRES) allows you to reset your own password using the security questions you selected when you created your account. Simply click the 'Forgot password?' and follow the instructions. You may also contact CRES support for assistance in resetting your password.
