do we have any experience whether one of our products might be affected by installing Sophos CryptoGuard?
Products in scope for that:
Service Management 14.1 suite:
I dont beleive that we do any testing or QA with Sophos CryptoGuard. Its something that you would have to do some testing with in your environment to see what the effects may be. Can you give us an idea of what it does specifically and how it interacts with applications?
thanks for picking that up :-) Well I'm not 100% sure, but it will be installed as a reaction to all that encrypting ransomware. So it looks like it scans the system for any processes that try to encrypt data and kills these processes:
CryptoGuard detections and required actions - Sophos Community
I don't think we have any processes than our tools chain that encrypt data but want to be sure about that.
So I think we encrypt password fields etc. but not necessarily data written to hardware specifically at the hard drive level. Again its something that would need to be fully tested in a dev environment before implementing it in a production environment.
Hope this helps,
