Prepare for Cloud Storage

The SafeGuard Enterprise Cloud Storage module offers file-based encryption of data stored in the cloud.

Cloud Storage makes sure that local copies of cloud data are encrypted transparently and remain encrypted when stored in the cloud.

The way users work with data stored in the cloud is not changed. The vendor-specific cloud software remains unaffected and can be used in the same way as before to send data to or receive data from the cloud.

To prepare endpoints for Cloud Storage:

Note: Cloud Storage only encrypts new data stored in the cloud. If data was already stored in the cloud before installing Cloud Storage, this data is not automatically encrypted. If it is to be encrypted, users first have to remove it from the cloud and then enter it again after Cloud Storage has been installed.
