Endpoint Encryption Software
Endpoint Encryption Software Overview
What is Endpoint Encryption Software?
Endpoint Encryption Software protects data residing on a computer hard drive (whether a personal computer or a server) and other network endpoints such as USB flash drives, external hard drives, SD memory cards, etc.
Endpoint encryption can happen in one of two ways. The first is encrypting the files or data on a computer. The advantage of this approach is that each file is encrypted and will remain so if it is moved from the source computer to a different computer. The disadvantage is that each file must be encrypted one by one.
A second approach is often called disk encryption of full disk encryption. With this approach, the entire hard disk drive is encrypted. This approach is particularly helpful in the event of device theft or loss as everything on the hard drive is automatically protected. A possible downside of this approach is that if any file on the encrypted disk is moved to another computer or a flash drive, it is no longer encrypted.
