Warning - Data Loss Possible

Clean and Destroy Circle actions will make all files within the Circle unreadable to all users. There is no option to undo this task. All files within the Circle will be unreadable. Proceed with caution to prevent data loss.

A Circle is a collection of devices and users that have access to a set of data governed by policies. Files, Users, and Devices can be added or removed from the Circle at any time. Lost your laptop? Simply remove the device from the Circle and the laptop will no longer have access to any of the protected files stored within it.

Users and devices can belong to multiple Circles at the same time.

Use the Circles configuration page to add and manage Circles including user management for specific Circle(s). Circle Policies can be managed here. Policy states are listed in the table.
