Symantec Encryption Management Server includes several features to simplify encryption, including Email Encryption, Secure Content Delivery, including Web Email Protection and Secure PDF Messenger, as well as being able to manage keys, and Symantec Encryption Desktop clients.  The server is certified for internet-placement scenarios, and undergoes all the rigorous security testing and reviews.  The server is also an on-premise solution, which means that you deploy the solution within your own infrastructure, but can then be placed in a public-facing scenario. 

There are several cloud solutions where a cloud vendor hosts your instance, but you still retain the capabilities of your product.  Symantec Encryption Management Server does not officially certify these solutions, but may work well within them provided the installation can work in a default setting.  This article will go over some of the basics that you can consider for Azure cloud.


In order to use the PGP server in Azure there are some specific steps to follow.  These steps are available through the support team.  Please reach out to Symantec Encryption Support for further Guidance on this.
