I am a newbie at PGP and have a few questions and am not sure which zone to put this question under.
I know that in a HIPAA compliant environment you want to have PGP on both the client and the server in a LAN area so that communication between the client and the server is encrypted.
My questions, for a HIPAA facility, are:
1) Does PGP create an overhead on the PCs that makes the PCs slow?
2) I know that Symantec has PGP software. Are there any other PGP software out there that works well?
3) What if you have a client that just has PCs with no file server on their LAN, does PGP software work the same and is it worth it to have it on those PCs?
