Question:Where does Curtain e-locker do encryption?
Answer:Curtain e-locker applies encryption mainly in two areas:
  1. Data packets during data transmission between Protected share folder (server-side) and Local Protected Directory (user's workstation)
  2. Local Protected Directory

Curtain e-locker does not apply encryption in server-side. This design does not affect normal procedures of server backup and restore. Also, it does not affect communication between servers. However, if a user can be in front of the server and logs into the system locally, the user can copy data from Protected share folder to other locations. In general, common users do NOT have rights to log into servers locally. We believe this design makes a good balance between convenience and security.
