Data Protection for Files, Folders and Network File Shares
When it comes to data protection, there is no one size fits all solution. Different organisations, departments, and even individuals have differing needs when it comes to protecting the information that they are responsible for.
While WinMagic Full Disk Encryption lays a strong foundation of data protection, encryption at file-level adds an additional layer of protection, often recommended as part of a more robust security strategy
An Added Layer of Protection at File Level
File Encryption is a key component of WinMagic Managed Encryption data security software. File Encryption enables users and administrators to encrypt specific files and folders on a device, or on file shares within the network and can even be applied on top of a device already protected by drive encryption – thus adding an additonal layer of protection. While protecting devices with full disk encryption is always recommended, encrypted files can also reside inside a file server or Network Attached Storage (NAS) that is not encrypted.
As part of our fully managed service, WinMagic will manage your policies, password rules and the manageability of files encryption across PC (Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 2012 R2, Windows 10).
File Encryption encrypts individual files and does not decrypt them until a user with the proper key and rights to view the documents tries to access them, furthermore users can enjoy.
Protect over sensitive documents
Have an additional layer of protection over sensitive files that may be moved onto a device which doesn’t utilise Full Disk Encryption
Protect personal files on a shared device or folder
Encrypted files can reside inside a file server or Network Storage that is not encrypted.
Avoid business disruptions
Decryption process does not slow your computer down since, unlike FDE, you don’t have to decrypt your programs as well as your files.
Increase protection against viruses and spyware
Not only protect files against loss or theft, but also viruses and spyware – adding another dimension to File Encryption.
