SafeGuard Enterprise Synchronized Encryption can encrypt any file created with an application specified in a policy, regardless of its file location. For example, if you specify Microsoft Word as an application for which file encryption is active, every file you create or save with Microsoft Word is automatically encrypted with the Synchronized Encryption key. Anyone whose key ring includes this key can access the file. A policy defines a list of applications for which file encryption is executed automatically
To make life easier for an end user, Synchronized Encryption provides an Outlook add-in that can automatically detect an email being sent outside the organization with a file attachment. It will then ask which option (Password protected, Unprotected) the user wishes to choose. If required, the user can set a password in the dialog displayed. Alternatively, you can use a policy to define a default action that is performed automatically without any user intervention.
Integration with Sophos Central Endpoint Protection - remove keys on compromised machines
Share key ring between SafeGuard Enterprise and Sophos Mobile Control
Encryption keys from the SafeGuard Enterprise key ring can be made available in the Sophos Secure Workspace (SSW) app managed by Sophos Mobile Control. Users of the app can then use the keys to decrypt and view documents, or to encrypt documents. These files can then be securely shared between all SafeGuard Enterprise and SSW users.
