Enterprise Whole Disk Encryption

Apple's Time Machine

Due to the over-the-network nature of Apple's Time Machine, disk encryption for these devices is not supported by SecureDoc. Although the Time Machine volume may look like a locally mounted drive on your Mac, attempting to encrypt the volume with SecureDoc will cause the device to fail and may require that you re-initialize the disk.

It is still possible to back up a SecureDoc encrypted machine with Time Machine, but the backup itself will not be encrypted.

Note: Time Machine do not meet the minimum security standards for Confidential data because they do not encrypt the data in transit, nor at rest.
