  • Files Encryption, Platform Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 7

    Dear Experts,

    I have a requirement for data encryption in an office. They have a domain created in Windows 2008 Server. There are PC's running Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 (64-bit / 32 -bit). They require there data to be encrypted like if files are stored on a shared drive and somebody wants to copy and take it outside the office the files should not be opened outsidet the office domain. Similarly for example if an employee who is dealing with clients and wants to give them files on CD he should have permission to write files to a CD which are readable at their client side.

    How this can be accomplished please guide me, before this I never did anything for data encryption. Any case study OR article easy to follow, kindly send me the link OR PDF file.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Have a good look at Active Directory Rights Management Services -- it should tick almost all your boxes. Only restriction is it really requires Office 2007.

    Also ask your management why so much encryption is required?

      from Office I mean office working environment and not MS Office 2007. I hope my question is clear now.

      Thanks,

        Have you considered a third party application? Security vendors offer network-wide encryption applications (e.g. Sophos). Or, if you want to protect single instances outside the office, how about using something like TrueCrypt?

          Did you actually read my post?

          I know you meant a "working environment" office -- the wierd orange underlining was a clue.

          I am saying that if you use Office 2007 as your business productivity package, you can deploy RMS and it will do most if not all of what you want.
