Local File Encryption
Local file encryption can be used to protect files stored on computers. When a laptop is being used outside of a secure location or a desktop terminal allows for multiple users, sensitive information needs to stay secure. Even if a system is lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised, the file is protected.
Simple File Encryption solutions are always needed for mobile users. However, weak security that allows users to keep their mobility is more detrimental by instilling a false sense of security. Most mobile solutions are primarily password only, which is inherently insecure. Some solutions offer the ability to incorporate a token or smart card, but only at an additional expense and added administration. Local file encryption also needs to be intuitive and effortless, to ensure that user habits allow them to easily encrypt items.
Authenex ASafe™ offers local file encryption protected by two-factor authentication. With the convenient Authenex A-Key token, files can be encrypted by a simple right-click method. The A-Key is a house key size device that utilizes the USB port and uses 128-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) to protect your files. The ASafe application also allows for Secure File Exchange.
