What is file encryption?
File encryption “scrambles” the contents of a data file, making it unreadable by others. A “key” is used during the encryption process, and the correct key is required to decrypt the file again and make it readable. The strength of the encryption depends on the encryption method used, and the length of the key.
Why you need file encryption software
Laptops and tablets are easily lost or stolen, and encrypting sensitive information safeguards you against anyone being able to use content found on them.
File encryption is especially important for business users in industries such as healthcare. Data breaches have exposed hundreds of thousands of patient records because of unencrypted data stored on a lost or stolen laptop

Encrypting sensitive data before it's stored or emailed makes good financial sense -- because in the event of a data breach, the average cost incurred for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information is $158.
