Application Lists

For application-based file encryption, you need to create Application Lists. These lists contain applications where files are encrypted as soon as they are created or saved. Only applications on Application Lists can access encrypted data. All other applications will display unreadable encrypted content. SafeGuard Enterprise provides an application list template you can easily customize to fit your needs. It contains common applications for which you can apply application-based file encryption. You can selectively activate or deactivate applications within a group or the whole group.

Note: Creating Application-based (Synchronized Encryption) policies is not possible without creating Application Lists beforehand.

Application lists for Macs

For some OS X applications, you need to exclude certain locations from encryption to ensure proper functionality. For example for Microsoft Office 2011 <Documents>\Microsoft User Data needs to be excluded. In the provided template this path is already specified.
