Reduce Data Breach Risks and Costs with Full Disk Encryption

Data Protection Business Issues and Challenges

Data is the life blood of your organization – and protecting your organization's intellectual property, your customers' private information, and the privacy of your employees is critical to running your business. Much of this data resides on the laptops you use every day - and not a day goes by without another report about a laptop with sensitive data on it being lost or stolen.

In fact, surveys indicate that 86% of organizations have had a laptop lost or stolen, and 56% of these have resulted in a data breach. And an astonishing 58% of these laptop losses happened at work. The sensitive information stored on these laptops can be misused in an instant, unless you have complete control over how data is stored - and whether or not it is encrypted.

Prevent unauthorized access to laptops, netbooks and desktops with transparent and easy-to-use full disk encryption. If a PC encrypted with the Lumension® Disk Encryption Add-On (powered by Sophos) falls into the wrong hands, the data is unreadable even if the hard drive is removed.


Lumension® Disk Encryption allows you to require users to encrypt data written on endpoint hard drives, using proven FIPS 140-2 validated algorithms, which maximizes security and performance. Full disk encryption is self-contained on the disk, allowing only those with the proper credentials to access that information. In addition, it provides for encrypted swap and hibernation files for complete security, along with the convenience and speed for end users with single sign-on to the Windows OS at the pre-boot stage.

Lumension® Disk Encryption is delivered as a stand-alone solution, or as an integrated add-on to Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite platform for additional capabilities, including integrated deployment, implementation, reporting, and key back-up capabilities.

Features & Benefits

  • Data Protection – Maximizes endpoint security and performance with proven, FIPS 140-2 validated encryption algorithms; and offers encrypted swap and hibernation files for complete security.
  • Ease of Use for organization – Network rollout is easy, with no user involvement required; and ensures higher end-user productivity, with secure password recovery via phone or the local self-help option.
  • Low Impact to end users – Provides the speed and convenience of a single pre-boot sign-on, using Windows User ID and password; and ensures that work is not interrupted using user-transparent background encryption.
