Encrypted Folders protect files at rest (on disk) using AES-256 encryption. When the Encrypted Folders feature is enabled, GoAnywhere MFT will automatically encrypt the data as it is written (streamed) to files within the designated folders. This is important for compliance with security standards (e.g. PCI DSS, HIPAA, etc) which require that sensitive data is never stored "in the clear" on disk at any time.
For authorized users, files will be automatically decrypted when they are accessed from an Encrypted Folder through a supported GoAnywhere MFT feature. This transparent decryption process does not require the user to provide a special password or key.
The following features in GoAnywhere MFT support Encrypted Folders:
