When a data breach occurs, organizations can lose money, productivity and customer trust. Any organization can be at risk of a data breach. Whether it is employee information or customer information, virtually every company has some level of exposure to the loss of sensitive data.
Strong data encryption can protect your data from unauthorized access and can help you address federal and state privacy requirements. Whether it’s software-based or hardware-based, Dell helps you find a data encryption solution that can protect private information stored on your computer hard drive.
Hardware-based full-disk encryption is designed to provide superior protection and performance as compared to software encryption. Your entire drive is encrypted – not just certain folders or files. Encryption keys are securely stored in the hard drive electronics, never in system memory or on the drive platters. Data is encrypted as fast as the drive can write without using your system’s microprocessor, so system performance is not impacted. Our central management console can ensure your data policies are always applied and cannot be changed by end-users. Further, it can back-up keys so that forgetful end-users won’t lose access to their encrypted data.
Hardware-based encryption can save you time and effort. Your DellTM system will arrive with data already encrypted, and you will never have to decrypt and re-encrypt the drive for system maintenance. When you dispose of the system, management software can easily destroy authentication keys leaving the drive ready for secure disposal.
For new system purchases Dell recommends hardware-based data encryption in combination with best practices to provide you with a secure and compliant, yet easy-to-manage data protection solution.
