FRP 5.1.0 - Protecting Critical Information - Keeping it Encrypted

Encryption is used to storage critical information, like Intellectual property and/or privacy information.
FRP is a transparent file encryption product, after load the key file could be send over decrypted.
Attaching files over some apps like Outlook, Web applications and others the file became unencrypted.
We should enable a feature in the policy settings, block process, to keep files encrypted, avoiding expose critical information (IP, privacy, customer data, personal information, among others, for example).

Re: FRP 5.1.0 - Protecting Critical Information - Keeping it Encrypted

This is a point to be improved for sure. Encryption as stated is used to ensure the privacy of information. The way it works today is complicated because you need to block the processes you want the data not to be decrypted. However there are flaws such as attaching a file by email in outlook through copy and paste, where the outlook.exe process even blocked the file is sent open. One suggestion is to reverse the logic, the once encrypted file becomes encrypted, and processes that wish to remove encryption can be registered.

I agree with @marcusalmeida .

It must be a "security policy decision" to decrypt automactly or maintain information encrypted.

McAfee products must have this options available on the produts because in my vision it is an "Security Policy Decision".
