Managing secure folders
You can perform the following operations on secure folders.
To display properties on a file encrypted with security rules, in Windows Explorer right-click on the file, select Stormshield Data Security and then select Properties or open the Properties of the file and select the Stormshield Data Security tab.
In the Stormshield Data Security tab, the file size information includes encrypted data and SDS Enterprise security data (the equivalent size information in the General tab does not include technical data).
The list of authorized users is displayed only if:
- You are connected to SDS Enterprise.
- You are part of the authorized users’ list.
You can choose the default behavior when encrypted files or folders are copied or moved to a non-secure folder, by going to the advanced settings of the Teams feature in SDMC. You can prohibit files and folders from being moved or copied, or you can allow them by choosing to decrypt or keep encryption.
To configure these options, refer to Configuring Stormshield Data Team.
Regardless of the behavior chosen, the Save pop-up menu makes it possible to create a copy of a file or folder while preserving encryption. For more information, refer to the section Saving an encrypted file.
It is also possible to encrypt the file using Stormshield Data File directly in the folder secured by Stormshield, before copying or moving it.
If you secure a folder that can be accessed offline, the files are encrypted at the shared folder level on the network but on your workstation as well, in the local folder in which they are copied.
At any time, you can view all Stormshield Data Team rules known to the user.
In the systray, right-click on the Stormshield Data Security icon.
- Select Properties
- In the Configuration tab, double-click on the Stormshield Data Team icon.
- Select the Security Rules tab:
- The known rules list appears in the upper part of the window. Select a rule to view the list of co-workers and owners of the rule.
Processing time is directly dependent on the number of co-workers in the rule, and system performance.
