    Seamless Integration with OneDrive

    When you install OneDrive and Boxcryptor on your PC or Mac, Boxcryptor creates a virtual drive and automatically adds your OneDrive to it. Inside this virtual folder you can create encrypted folders. Everything you store in those folders will be encrypted automatically and, therefore, will be perfectly safe. Encryption is on-the-fly, which means that in this drive you can work with your files as usual. Boxcryptor handles the encryption for you in the background.

    SharePoint Encryption with Boxcryptor

    Additional Security for Microsoft SharePoint

    SharePoint allows you to access your data no matter where you are. If you want to increase the privacy of your sensitive data in this convenient storage solution, Boxcryptor helps. Since SharePoint does not always store data locally, there are some minor limitations.

    Boxcryptor is specialized in cloud storage solutions like OneDrive. You can only encrypt data in SharePoint with Boxcryptor if you have set up a synchronization to the local OneDrive in SharePoint.

    To store files, you can use SharePoint as a central storage location for company data on the one hand, and OneDrive as a private storage location for small groups or individual users on the other.

    Encrypted File Sharing within Microsoft Teams

    Microsoft Teams is the central place for collaboration in Microsoft 365, combining chat, meetings, notes and attachments, connecting users, content and a wide variety of applications such as Excel, Word, as well as more than 150 third-party apps.

    Companies that use Microsoft 365 as a cloud solution can also use Microsoft Teams. However, security and data protection with respect to the GDPR has been discussed intensively over the past weeks and months. We took a closer look at data protection and encryption at Microsoft.

    Does Boxcryptor support SharePoint Online?

    Yes, Share Point Online is supported by all mobile platforms. Simply add this provider with the respective login credentials. On a PC and a Mac, Share Point Online may be integrated via the OneDrive application, or via the Windows Explorer or the (Mac) Finder. Boxcryptor automatically detects the integration via OneDrive application. The integration via Windows Explorer / (Mac) Finder has to be set manually via the Boxcryptor settings.

    SharePoint Online has to be snycronised locally.

    Who can use Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams?

    Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams is available for all Boxcryptor Company and Enterprise customers. It is not available for individual users on Boxcryptor Free, Personal or Business plans. If you are interested to use Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams in your organization, you can start a free 14-day Boxcryptor Company trial or reach out to our sales team for more information. Boxcryptor Company is already available for 5 users and more.

    Where can I use Boxcryptor in Microsoft Teams?

    Boxcryptor is available in three locations in Microsoft Teams:

    1. As a personal app in the left navigation bar. The personal app connects with your own OneDrive so that you can access your own encrypted files.
    2. As a channel app in a channel's tab bar. The channel app connects with the channel's SharePoint folder so that all channel members can access encrypted files in the channel.
    3. As a message extension app in channel's message compose box. The message extension app allows you to post and view encrypted files for other channel members in the channel chat. Encrypted files uploaded in the channel chat are stored in the channel's encrypted files root folder.

    All three apps are included in the app package you need for the installation and are installed as a complete package.

    Can I edit Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.) documents in Boxcryptor?

    Unfortunately, no. Microsoft Teams uses Office Online to directly create, view and edit Office documents. Office Online is provided and run by Microsoft and requires Office documents to be sent to Microsoft's servers in order to work with them. For obvious reasons, Boxcryptor cannot send plaintext data to Microsoft and thus does not support Office Online for document editing.

    The recommended workflow to edit Office documents in Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams is to download the document, edit it locally on your device and re-upload the edited document in Boxcryptor for Microsoft Teams. If a file with the same name already exists, you will be asked if you want to overwrite or skip it.

    How can the trustworthiness of the software be verified?

    Boxcryptor has been tested for security and vulnerabilities in an independent audit. The audit was carried out by the security firm Kudelski Security, with consistently positive results. Amongst other things, the insight into the code shows that no serious vulnerabilities were found by the security company. The full report is available on our blog.

    How secure is Microsoft 365?

    Unlike hard drives, for example, data stored in the cloud is very well protected, as physical events like fires or burglaries can not affect your cloud-stored data. Nevertheless, individuals have to secure files that they save in a cloud since many cloud storage providers do not offer end-to-end encryption. With Boxcryptor, you can encrypt your data before uploading it in the cloud.
