Encrypted Folders

Encrypted Folders protect files at rest (on disk) using AES-256 encryption. When the Encrypted Folders feature is enabled, GoAnywhere will automatically encrypt the data as it is written (streamed) to files within the designated folders. This is important for compliance with security standards (e.g. PCI DSS, HIPAA, etc) which require that sensitive data is never stored "in the clear" on disk at any time.

When a Project accesses the files from an encrypted folder, the files will be automatically decrypted on the fly. Encrypted folders can also be accessed by authorized users through the GoAnywhere File Manager screen.
