File sharing is everywhere. Everybody shares files, folder, video-, audio contents, notes, spreadsheets, documents and many more that may contain various proprietary information from your private data, via corporate know-how to government secrets. Shared file servers offer solution to channel such sharing into controlled and manageable path. These servers have emerged as central collaborative tools in today’s workplaces and many companies now offer various file sharing solutions, enabling Users to access shared information anywhere. Without proper protection and encryption, this shared data presents an easy target for those looking to maliciously access to sensitive information and an easy way for sensitive data to accidently leak. IT security managers must make sure that data stored and shared in this way is secure and only accessible to authorized users if they are to be used as true productivity tools.
How it works?
Encryption File Share Encryption protects data on workstations and notebooks, enabling collaborative teams to securely share documents on internal and cloud based file servers by automatically and transparently encrypting files and folders based on Grayteq Security Orchestrator created and centrally managed encryption rules. This scheme ensures only authorized users can read or modify files. Once encrypted, files and folders can be moved to encrypted locations, ensuring only authorized users have access to sensitive data.
File Share Encryption extends file server access controls to include strong end-to-end encryption, allowing security administrators to specify access rights for specific groups, users, or file locations.
Persistent File Encryption on Desktops, Laptops and Servers
With Encryption’s File Share Encryption, upon their Windows provided credentials, authorized Users can open, work, save and share encrypted files, without changing their previously followed business practices, or installing and learning new applications. Security Administrators are able to set centrally managed encryption rules to contents such as documents, spreadsheets, presentations, video, and audio files are automatically encrypted when saved or sent to specific folders.
