ESET Endpoint Encryption is a comprehensive security application designed to protect your data at rest and in transit.

All editions of ESET Endpoint Encryption encrypt files, folders and emails. They also create encrypted virtual disks, compress archives and include a desktop shredder for secure file deletion. A patented encryption key sharing system means seamless sharing of encrypted files, email and media. There are also fewer passwords to remember and an exceptionally intuitive user experience.

An administrator remotely manages user installation using the ESET Endpoint Encryption Server. ESET Endpoint Encryption Server communicates changes made by an administrator so that systems used or kept off-site are always up to date.

A managed installation has a small number of user-accessible settings but benefits from a wide range of software and enforced security policy settings, controlled from the ESET Endpoint Encryption Server.


Managed users are not required to back up recovery passwords or encryption keys.
