Symantec Endpoint Encryption

Created: 29 Nov 2012 • Updated: 29 Nov 2012 | 1 comment

I work using client kit which has Symantec Endpoint Encryption installed, so all data saved to removeable media is encrpypted by default.

This is a sensible thing to do, most of the time. I particularly need some unencrypted data.

The deployed 'policy' of automatic authentication prevents me from saving a password or access utilities etc. to enable the data to be read from example my employers PC.

Is my only option to ask the client to alter the policy on my machine to facilitate a non-encrypted backup or could I simply purchase my own copy of Symantec Endpoint Encryption and then do something with certificates to link the two versions?

I realise that network attached storage is not encrypted, the two machines don't connect to the same network.

Yes, if you have the password or certificate to decrypt the file, then all you need is your own copy of SEE-Removable Storage.
