Synchronized Encryption

Synchronized Encryption is the application-based file encryption module of Sophos SafeGuard Enterprise. The differences compared to location-based file encryption are:

  • Automatic encryption of files created or edited by defined applications (In-Apps).

  • Only defined applications can read files.

  • Encryption does not depend on the location of the file.

  • Encryption keys can be automatically removed from the users’ devices if a security threat is suspected.
    Note This feature is only available if you use web-based Sophos Central Endpoint Protection together with SafeGuard Enterprise. You need a SafeGuard Enterprise policy set to remove the encryption keys. The feature is available on Windows and macOS endpoints.
