    STEP 2:

    (SITE 1) Any files now copied by the end user to the USB device will now be automatically encrypted with the “Secure Share” key. The padlock icon on the Removable Media drive and the files denote that they are encrypted. Any attempt to read these files in an unapproved/unauthorized environment will be unsuccessful.
