SafeGuard Easy

Data is one of the most valuable assets that companies and organizations have. These assets are in even more danger since "mobile computing" has become a reality: sensitive information is stored on notebooks and removable media - without any firewall protection. Mobile devices and media, along with the sensitive and valuable information that is stored on them, are constantly exposed to loss or theft. A company's management team is responsible for taking all appropriate steps to protect a company's or organization's data

SafeGuard Easy provides this protection: No unauthorized user may access the device and read data or use the device as a tool to enter the company network. If a device gets into unauthorized hands the data is securely protected even if the hard disk is removed. Complete encryption of the entire hard disk and a user authentication procedure that runs before the operating system boots provide secure protection.

Whether a single laptop or 10,000 PCs are to be protected, SafeGuard Easy allows easy implementation and enforcement of the IT security policy. SafeGuard Easy is truly user-proof. It operates transparently in the background, so end users don't have to undergo training or alter their work behaviours. For security officers, IT managers, and system administrators, SafeGuard Easy offers transparent security, easy security policy implementation, and simple deployment.

In a world where laptops and desktop PCs are lost every day and hackers attack corporate secrets every hour, SafeGuard Easy is a business necessity.
