Symantec File&Folder Encryption
Shared file servers have emerged as central collaborative tools in today’s workplace and many companies now offer cloud based file sharing, enabling users to access shared information anywhere. Without proper protection, this shared data presents an easy target for those looking to maliciously gain sensitive information and an easy way for sensitive data to accidently leak. Organizations must have confidence 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. File Share Encryption protects data on PCs and enables teams to securely share documents on internal and cloud based file servers by automatically and transparently encrypting files and folders based on either manual or centralized policy. This approach ensures only authorized users can read or modify files, fulfilling partner and regulatory requirements for information partitioning and security. File Share Encryption extends file server access controls to include strong end-to-end encryption, allowing content owners or administrators to specify access rights for specific groups, individuals, applications, or file locations.
