    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.

    Seamless Integration with SharePoint

    Simple Integration of Boxcryptor and SharePoint

    When adding SharePoint to Boxcryptor (through the OneDrive Sync Client or the Windows Explorer), Boxcryptor creates a virtual drive. In this virtual drive, you can manage your data — by creating new encrypted folders or encrypting existing data. The encryption happens in the background and you can work with your files as usual.

    How is SharePoint connected to OneDrive?

    OneDrive for Business is automatically included in SharePoint Online. SharePoint Online users automatically see their SharePoint Online sites in their OneDrive for Business overview. For users of the normal OneDrive cloud, there is no connection to SharePoint.

    Does Boxcryptor work with Files On-Demand?

    Yes - if you sync SharePoint Online with the OneDrive Application you can activate Files On-Demand and continue working with Boxcryptor. This way, valuable disk space is saved, since your data is only stored in the cloud by default. Even online-only files can be securely encrypted with Boxcryptor.

    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 SharePoint?

    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.
