It sounds like OpenPGP is exactly what you need. All senders get your
key, encrypt the data, send it to you you decrypt it. It can be easily
automated with scripts around GPG or (in compiled languages) using
GPGME. Since you don't mention need of any kinky stuff in the area of
key management, it seems trivial.

And if you need moral support, I can attest that I've seen GPG used to
do similar stuff in the banking industry.
