SafeGuard LAN Crypt and SafeGuard Enterprise share the same file based encryption mechanism. This mechanism is rule based, and determines for each file path, which encryption rule is applicable.
Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
SafeGuard LAN Crypt Client for PC
SafeGuard File Encryption 6.0
SafeGuard Data Exchange 6.0
SafeGuard Cloud Storage 6.0
What to do
If more than one rule from different products are applicable, the product with the highest priority wins.
The default application priority is:
- Cloud Storage
- Secure Data Exchange
- File Share
- LAN Crypt
You can change the default priorities by creating/changing a registry value.
Set "ApplicationPriority" to a semicolon separated list of product shortnames, starting with the highest priority. The shortnames are:
The default priorities would result in "SGNCSE;SGNDX;SGNFS;SGLC”.
In general, we recommend that you do not have encryption rules from different products applied to a single path.
