WinMagic announced it has solved the problems associated with deploying enterprise-class full-disk encryption throughout a heterogeneous computing environment including support for Mac and 64-bit Windows clients. SecureDoc now provides centrally-manageable and fully-transparent, always-on full-disk encryption for Windows (2000/XP/Vista) and Mac.
Mac computers are often not included in encryption deployments. Many enterprise networks are primarily Windows-based, and Mac platforms are used by select departments or individuals (including many executives). SecureDoc offers the ability to deploy and manage encryption for Mac desktops and laptops from the same console that is used to manage the Windows machines. This drives greater efficiency for IT and security staff while ensuring sensitive data is protected. Centralized escrow and management of encryption keys also ensures continued access to data for authorized users in the event of lost passwords, departing employees or other challenges.
SecureDoc also supports and manages hardware-encrypted disk drives such as the Seagate Momentus FDE and BlackArmor drives, as well as the upcoming TCG Opal specification drives from other leading drive manufacturers.
Additional versatility results from SecureDoc’s ability to simplify the deployment of any combination of sector-based full-disk encryption, file-and-folder encryption, container encryption and self-extractor encryption. This not only makes it easy for organizations to customize data protection to meet specific security protocols, but also future proofs their investment in SecureDoc for Windows, Mac and Linux environments.
SecureDoc version 4.6 additional enhancements include:
- BlackArmor Drive Support
- Dell E-Series Integrated Smartcard Reader Support
- Redesigned and Enhanced Active Directory Synchronization
- New Token and Smartcard Support
- Several Improvements to Administration Console
- Credential Provider Support for Vista.
