In today's computing environment hard drives on client computers often contain vast amounts of sensitive or confidential information. In most cases the operating system (Microsoft Windows) only provides insufficient protection for such data, whether on a standalone computer or on a managed client in a corporate environment.
Most measures to prevent unauthorized data access are only effective if you can provide physical security. When a computer or hard drive is lost or stolen, most security measures become ineffective. Anyone with physical access to the computer or drive can easily bypass file permissions or system passwords. Unless all data is encrypted, the business impact of such a security breach can be catastrophic.
To prevent expensive data breaches, DriveLock includes an integrated state-of-the-art security and encryption solution for hard disks. DriveLock Full Disk Encryption (FDE) includes the following functionality:
DriveLock provides powerful protection of your data. Fast performance means that you don't need to be concerned about FDE slowing down users. Encryption is entirely transparent and unobtrusive, letting users do their work exactly the same way they always have. To further improve the user experience, the pre-boot authentication prompt appears within just a few seconds of powering on the computer, letting users log on even quicker than before.
As with other DriveLock components, installation, configuration and monitoring are designed to be easy, intuitive and worry-free. There's no need to master intricate configuration options or complicated installation routines. Instead, you get a logical structure of configuration settings. When using DriveLock's Starter Mode, a wizard helps you configure all required settings and makes sure that everything will work as expected.
