Encryption for files, folders and Network shares to protect data from hackers
I am looking for the best solution for encrypting our data on servers and workstations to protect it in the event it got stolen by hackers. Not just physically stolen, but data extraction through hacker attacks and bots.
Our systems are Windows servers and workstations.
I need a reasonable solution and I need to know what to expect when I use the encryption...I am somewhat worried that encrypting might cause stuff to stop working or make the data un-retrievable in the case of a system crash...
I'm not that familiar with encryption and what different types are used for and what is the best for me.
