Data encryption and protection

Data encryption reduces the risk of unintentional leakage in case your notebook, removable drive, or hard drive is stolen or lost, or upon access by unauthorized users and applications.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows provides encryption functionality. Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows allows you to encrypt files stored on local drives of devices and removable drives, as well as encrypt removable drives and hard drives entirely.

Encryption rules are configured through Kaspersky Security Center by defining policies. Encryption and decryption according to the existing rules are performed when applying a policy.

Availability of the encryption management feature is determined by the user interface settings.

The administrator can perform the following actions:

These operations are performed using tools integrated into Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows. For detailed instructions on how to perform operations and a description of encryption features please refer to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows Online Help.

Kaspersky Security Center supports encryption management functionality for devices running MAC operating systems. Encryption is configured using Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac tools for those application versions that support encryption functionality. For detailed instructions on how to perform operations and a description of encryption features please refer to the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac Administrator's Guide.
