With BestCrypt Data Shelter, users can create protection policies for any number of folders. Once polices are in place, the contents of those folders will be protected from unwanted programs and users when they are in use.
Protection policies allow you to manually select which programs and users have access to a particular folder. Alternatively, you can request BestCrypt Data Shelter to only provide registered programs with access, or request Data Shelter to create protection policies based on the history of programs accessing the folder.
BestCrypt Data Shelter receives information about encrypted disk volumes from BestCrypt Volume Encryption. Users are informed whether protected folders are located on an encrypted volume or not. Users also have the option to encrypt the underlying disk volume with BestCrypt Volume Encryption by clicking on the 'Encrypt' button.
The tool allows you to create encrypted and compressed backup archives of protected folders with Jetico’s BCArchive software, which is embedded in BestCrypt Data Shelter. Users can configure BestCrypt Data Shelter to automatically and regularly synchronize the contents of protected folders with the encrypted archive.
