Even in shared environments The cloud promotes collaboration, so the need for encryption is even greater in shared environments. File encryption follows your documents wherever they go, ensuring control over who can access sensitive data and what they can do with it.
Your cloud provider encrypts its servers to defend against outsider threats, but this protection does not follow the file once it has been shared. The file can be copied, emailed and opened by anyone. With Avanan, sensitive documents can be encrypted automatically so they cannot be unintentionally shared to unauthorized individuals, even if left in a shared directory or forwarded via email.
Avanan’s policy-driven controls can encrypt documents automatically based upon content or context. Authorized users can open and edit the files without need for passwords, but maintain protection even if stored in a shared directory.
Beyond encryption, file controls can limit printing, copy and paste, or screen capture. Watermarking and file retraction can provide audit trails and file controls long after a document has left the organization.
