Encrypt files in the cloud

Sophos SafeGuard encrypts your files in the cloud automatically if the following conditions are met:
  • Your administrator specified that files in cloud storage folders are encrypted.
  • The cloud storage folder is located outside a Secured Folder (see Secured Folders).
  • You are using one of the supported cloud storage providers:
    • Box
    • Dropbox
    • Google Drive
    • Microsoft OneDrive
    • Microsoft OneDrive for Business
To see if your cloud storage folder is encrypted, check the Policies tab in the preference pane, see Policies tab.
  • You will see Sophos SafeGuard overlay icons on the encrypted files, instead of the cloud storage provider's icons.
  • You can't view or edit encrypted files in the cloud simultaneously with other users.
