In addition to encrypting files locally (e.g., "local disk (C:)"), you can also encrypt files located within the cloud (e.g., Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.) and network share locations. Adding a cloud storage location helps protect users from possible loss of files in the event the computer is ever lost or becomes inoperable. Users can also use a cloud storage location to share Atakama-encrypted files with other Atakama users and to access their Atakama-encrypted files from another Atakama-enabled computer.
When a user creates an Atakama Secure Folder, they can sync the files saved in the cloud storage location to a local folder on their computer where the files will be encrypted by Atakama. Users have two options to sync:
- The cloud provider's native cloud sync, which requires the user to install the cloud provider's software on their computer, or
- Atakama's CloudSync feature, which does not require the user to install the cloud provider's software on their computer.
