A technician who is working on an employee’s laptop finds that a number of files that were encrypted on a network server drive are present on the laptop drive in unencrypted form. What could cause this problem?
- Encrypted files cannot be transferred across a network.
- The new computer doesn’t have an NTFS partition.
- The network proxy decrypted the data to scan it for malware.
- The sensitive data was transferred with the FTP protocol.
When encrypted files are transferred to a new computer that is not using an NTFS formatted hard drive, the files will no longer be encrypted.
