I am considering setting up EFS on our 2000 domain to protect some of our data. We have about 50 users with 15 or so laptops that are mostly remote. I am considering using EFS to secure some of our data that would reside on server shares and MyDocs folders on laptops, but am a bit afraid of causing issues, so looking for feedback/suggestions. We have some confidential data that we would not want to accidentally fall into other people hands if a laptop were lost or if a user wanted to try and email out certain data.
Would EFS protect against these scenarios and if so, any practical design/implementation suggestions. I would maybe like to try a pilot
