SDS for C&M 3.2 New features
SDS for C&M now includes Agentless Encryption technology, which makes it possible to protect and decrypt confidential files directly in a browser. Administrators therefore no longer need to deploy or maintain SDS for C&M clients. SDS for C&M clients also no longer need to be installed on the workstations of external users who receive confidential information. The features that implement this technology are described below.
SDS for C&M Encryption Portal
End users can now perform the following operations by accessing SDS for C&M Encryption Portal in their browsers without the prior installation of the SDS for C&M client on their workstations.
- Create an SDS for C&M account;
- Log in with their SDS for C&M accounts;
- Protect confidential files;
- Open protected files.
SDS for C&M becomes much easier to deploy and use, since the server can be accessed on all operating systems.
SDS for C&M client
Collaboration with external users
SDS for C&M makes it possible to share protected files with external users who do not have the SDS for C&M client on their computers or mobile devices. In the Grant access menu in the SDS for C&M client, the user enters the recipients’ e-mail addresses, then grants them access to the files.
On the recipients’ side, they authenticate on SDS for C&M Encryption Portal through their SDS for C&M accounts or using a code that they received via e-mail if they do not have accounts. They can then upload the protected file to the web page suggested by SDS for C&M Encryption Portal, which decrypts and saves it directly on the workstation.
