The AutoVu™ root folder should be secured and have restricted access as it contains encrypted hotlist and permit files with personally identifiable information.

What you should know

Multiple strategies can be used to restrict access to the folder:
  • Set up access permissions to the root folder. The access can be restricted to a specific Windows user used for that sole purpose.
  • Restrict physical access to the root folder.
  • Encrypt the root folder. Windows BitLocker or equivalent technology can be used for this.

The AutoVu™ root folder is usually found at C:\Genetec\AutoVu\Rootfolder.
