Encryption Agent

This section describes the Encryption agent. The agent is a processing agent for batch and real-time workflow configurations. 

The Encryption agent can be used to either mask or unmask complete files in order to protect the data. It can be used when data is going to be processed in the cloud without involving personal data, for example. The agent enables compliance with regulations around data protection, ensuring personal data is accessed in a controlled manner.

An example Encryption Agent Workflow

The agent uses a profile in which you can make your encryption configurations, see Encryption Profile for further information about this profile.

In the agent itself, you can determine whether the agent should encrypt or decrypt files and if you want the agent to handle empty data or not.
