Use local keys

Local keys are only available for Location-based file encryption.

Local keys can be used for encrypting files in specified folders on a removable device or a cloud storage provider. These locations must be included in an encryption policy already.

To create a local key:

  1. Make sure your endpoint is connected to the SafeGuard Enterprise Server, see Server tab.
  2. Right-click on a file or selection of files and select Create New Key.
  3. Choose a name and a passphrase for your key and click OK.
    The key name is prefixed with "Local_" and postfixed with date and time.
The local key is created and added to your keyring. You can now apply the local key to a removable device or a cloud storage folder.
