Step 1: Go to Egnyte's shared folder and find the unencrypted file you would like to encrypt. Right Click on the unencrypted file and select 'Secure with Anchor.'
Step 2: You will be redirected to a new window, letting you know your file has been successfully Anchored.
Note: Only files can be Anchored/unAnchored on Egnyte's web interface. You can Anchor/unAnchor both files and folders on Egnyte Connect.
Users with Egnyte Connect (Z drive) will have access to files on their endpoint machines. This will allow for native consumption of protected content.
