Encrypting Large Volume of Data
We have been using PGP Desktop / Netshare to encrypt sensitive data for several years. The volume of shared data (on an AD member server) and the number of installed desktop clients (XP/Win7) is steadily growing and we have begun to experience serious performance issues whenever we have to re-encrypt. With close to half a Terabyte of data, re-encrypting the shared folder takes so long it has to be done overnight. We do not have PGP Universal Server (now Symantec Encryption Management Server), although this is under consideration for next year. As more business units realize the need for encryption, we will easily be into multiple terabytes within a couple of years. Building on what we already have, is there a better, more efficient way to encrypt large volumes of data? Thanks.
