My System


The problem with file encryption is that users forget to use it. A new server-based system from Applied Security claims it can remove that obstacle by handing the decision to encrypt data back to anxious administrators.

The company’s newly-launched fideAS file enterprise software can be used to encrypt data in files or folders on PCs, laptops, or even servers. Integrating with a Microsoft Active Directory for easy management, the innovation is that none of this involves the user of that device making any decision for or against using such a security system. It is done transparently according to policies on which data needs to be secured.

The key distribution element – always a tricky issue – can be given to users on smartcards or as tokens on plain USB drives. For added security, the role of the system admin and the security admin is separated, ensuring that no one individual has total access to the keys in a way that could be used to undermine the system.
