Exchange data with SafeGuard Data Exchange

The following are typical examples of secure data exchange with SafeGuard Data Exchange:

  • Exchanging data with SafeGuard Enterprise users who have at least one key that is also included in your key ring.

    In this case, encrypt the data on the removable media using a key that is also included in the recipient's key ring (for example, on their notebook). The recipient can use the key to access the encrypted data transparently.

  • Exchanging data with SafeGuard Enterprise users who do not have the same keys as you do.

    In this case, create a local key and encrypt the data using this key. Keys created locally are secured by a passphrase and can be imported by SafeGuard Enterprise. You provide the data's recipient with the passphrase. Using the passphrase, the recipient can import the key and access the data.

  • Exchanging data with users without SafeGuard Enterprise

    Users who do not have SafeGuard Enterprise installed on their computer can use SafeGuard Portable to access encrypted files. SafeGuard Portable is not supported on Macs. For more information, see:
