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

The Encryptor agent can be used to either mask or unmask files for data protection purposes. It can be used when data is going to be processed in the cloud instances. The agent enables compliance with data protection regulations, ensuring personal data is accessed accordingly.

The agent uses a profile in which you can make your encryption configurations, see Encryption (3.0) for further information about this profile.

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