Data Security

Simple Encryption Platform

Protect Your Data Wherever It Goes, However It Travels

Cryptzone’s Simple Encryption Platform (SEP) is a comprehensive enterprise data security suite that persistently protects your data at rest and in transit across a range of applications, devices and storage media. Centralized key management and encryption leverages various directory services and allows for enterprise control of document access, even while users are mobile. In the event that portable devices are lost or stolen, Cryptzone provides a remote “Kill Pill” functionality that removes access or ultimately removes the documents. SEP’s enterprise application integration includes SharePoint™ and Outlook and provides easy-to-use, rule-based and single-click document encryption.

SEP Overview

With SEP, encryption persists with files as they travel anywhere within an enterprise, from SharePoint to email, to outside corporate boundaries, onto a thumb drive or copied to a laptop or tablet.

SEP is designed to empower security administrators and end users to secure data easily, whether information is in transit (email, portable and digital media) or stored on a corporate network, cloud-based storage or SharePoint repository. SEP’s approach is to provide automated authentication and key management that ensures an appropriate level of access rights to all copies of a document with access control lists being transparently updated, wherever they are located. 

However files travel within an enterprise or outside corporate boundaries – by SharePoint, email, thumb drive, optical disk or direct download – SEP delivers secure, persistent encryption and centrally managed control. In addition, you have the power to determine who has access to your documents and what they are doing with them, no matter where that content rests. Overall, an organization doesn’t have to assume that one-time authorization equals permanent authorization, so you are able to configure SEP clients to authenticate each and every time a user tries to access a protected document. The SEP platform provides a significant amount of flexibility. For instance, the SEP platform can be installed in an on-premise scenario or delivered as a cloud service.

Your Information Is Secure, No Matter Where It’s Stored or Transmitted

SharePoint

We’ve tightly integrated the encryption platform into the SharePoint platform, the de facto enterprise standard for collaboration and enterprise content management. SEP’s context-aware capabilities allow you to set encryption and document classification rules based on multiple parameters, including authors, folders, meta tags and even the content of each document – using keyword searches or regular expressions. Document encryption does not negatively impact the normal operation of SharePoint search functionality, so users can easily find encrypted documents to which they are authorized. Secure sharing is also made incredibly easy with the ability to send encrypted emails directly from the SharePoint platform.

File and Folder

Secured eFile empowers users to encrypt files and folders through intuitive tools that are integrated into the standard user interface. Users can encrypt files or even complete folders and assign access rights for users or groups within the organization’s Active Directory. A ’key’ icon clearly shows when a document has been secured and locked. With Secured eFile you ensure that users, customers and partners have access to the information they need, while protecting against those who don’t.

Email

Secured eMail integrates tightly with SharePoint Library and Microsoft Outlook providing a simple, one-click “Send Encrypted” link & button to send secure, encrypted emails. The encrypted emails can be viewed on any device, on any mail client and received by any email system. Users without a SEP client view the email contents through a secure Web user interface. SEP email templates are completely customizable to provide an experience consistent with your brand identity.

USB and Portable Storage

Secured eFile extends SEP’s encryption to file systems on any medium or device, providing portable protection and automatic data compression on enterprise file servers, end-user laptops and cloud storage services, such as Dropbox. Secured eUSB extends this protection to removable media – thumb drives, portable hard drives and optical DVD, CD-R and Blu-ray discs. This is where SEP’s centralized administration really comes into its own. The platform can be configured to require synchronization with the central encryption server each time access to a particular document is requested, reducing the risk of data compromise and exposure.
