Encrypt user documents over multiple sites
Posted on 2013-11-19
We have a windows domain managed by server 2003 working over 3 sites connected by VPN's, we need to encrypt and backup all user data. We currently have folder redirects setup on the server so all user data can be backed up from the server, unfortunately though we found this to slow over the vpn so the users in the satalite offices store there files on a local nas box which is then backed up to the main server over night.
So one solution would be to use EFS on the redirected documents, this would work for the main office which still use their my docs folders, the trouble is how do we encrypt the user data in the satellite offices who aren't using my docs.
