Encryption on sbs 2011
Posted on 2014-02-25
We use shadowprotect and encrypt the backup files. But on the server, an SBS 2011 server, is the only option to use bitlocker, which is only available on the more expensive versions of licensed SBS? In the NTFS security tab, there's the 2 buttons to either compress or encrypt the file. Will that work on the server for users on the network?
OK, something like trucrypt or another 3rd party app is also a solution. But thinking of native Microsoft olutions.
And the point of encryption is for when the server is powered off and booted into another OS, correct? At that point the files are not recoverable. But while the server is booted up normally, if you have proper rights to the files, they are accessible. And if you don't have rights to the file, you wouldn't be able to access it if encrypted or not?
