Overview

Smartcrypt's data security intelligence (DSI) adds another layer of security by allowing enterprise security teams and audit/risk personnel to watch the use of Smartcrypt TDE within an enterprise.  Reporting allows enterprise security teams and audit/risk personnel to observe encryption of files, the user who encrypted the file, the device the user used to encrypt the file, and users who access the file. With DSI, any updates or changes to TDE Agents, TDE Groups, and TDE Keys can also be tracked. All of this information can be viewed in the Reporting page within the TDE tab.
