When using Cloud Storage Encryption in the SafeGuard Management Center, the first thing you have to do is creating the Cloud Storage Definition (CSD). You can use autodetection for specific Cloud Storage providers or configure the CSD based on a fixed synchronization application and synchronization folder.
You require Security Officer (SO) status in order to perform the tasks described in this article.
Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s) SafeGuard Cloud StorageSafeGuard Cloud Storage 6.0SafeGuard Cloud Storage 7.0SafeGuard Cloud Storage 6.10.0
You can use Cloud Storage provider placeholders to define the synchronization application and folders. These placeholders represent supported 3rd party Cloud Storage applications.
You can use the placeholder to specify a given 3rd party application as the synchronization application. You can use the same placeholder to point the synchronization folder in the CSD to the synchronization folder used by the 3rd party application.
The advantage in this case is that SafeGuard Cloud Storage uses an auto-detection on the Client itself to find the application and the synchronization folder of the Cloud Storage Provider. This also applies to configuration changes (e.g. configuring a different path to the synchronization folder).
In general, most Cloud Storage Providers that fulfill the following requirements should work with SafeGuard Cloud Storage.
The Cloud Storage Providers must:
Example (in this case Syncplicity - Personal Edition):
The Cloud Storage Providers in the following table should work in combination with SafeGuard Cloud Storage but have not been explicitly tested.
After configuring a CSD, it can be used as an encryption target in a device protection policy.
