Encryption Management Server File Share Encryption Powered by PGP Technology


In some cases, using group keys for File Share Encryption (formerly PGP NetShare) is difficult and the ability to auto-encrypt folders to group keys based on consumer groups would be beneficial to the end-user. By creating the functionality to allow the auto-encryption of File Share folders to group key of managed clients would eliminate the user to manually search for the group key and then encrypt the folder.
