What is encryption and why is it important?
Encryption is the process of changing information in such a way as to make it unreadable by anyone except those possessing special knowledge (usually referred to as a “key”). The key allows the user to change information back to its original, readable form.
Encryption is important because it allows you to securely protect data that you don’t want anyone else to have access to. Businesses use it to protect corporate secrets, governments use it to secure classified information, and many individuals use it to protect personal information to guard against things like identity theft.
ESET Endpoint Encryption features include:
|Full disk encryption||A stolen or lost laptop can pose a serious threat to network security. By using full-disk encryption, missing computers cannot be used to access the corporate network. Any login information remains encrypted and secure when the system is off.||Full-disk encryption is a transparent, background operation requiring no user input beyond system boot-time. With no noticeable impact on system speed, data is automatically encrypted and decrypted on-the-go with zero impact on productivity and without the need for training.|
|Removable media encryption||USB memory sticks pose a unique problem. Most are personal property that contain personal data yet have found their way into daily use in just about every organisation.||ESET Endpoint Encryption provides an on-device application which runs straight from the USB stick, needs no install and, with the right password allows the user to edit, read and write encrypted documents on any PC. Fully transparent and password-free at work, password-protected at home or off-site.|
|File & folder encryption||ESET Endpoint encrypted folders give everyone the ability to work directly with encrypted data. To add more security, encrypted folders can be hidden when the user logs-out.||With the click of a few buttons, you can move any selected file to an encrypted folder. All files moved to this folder are encrypted immediately. Easy.|
|Email encryption||There are many times when we’d like to be sure that a confidential email message stays that way, or you may receive an important email, which you’d like to put somewhere private.||The simple answer to these problems is to encrypt confidential email. ESET Endpoint Encryption allows you to automate this process or encrypt an email & attachments with a password.|
|Secure file deletion||The ESET Endpoint Encryption Shredder allows secure deletion of any file on the PC that you wish to shred. Easily.|
