Help Me Choose: OptiPlex Security Software

 
In today's electronic world, personal and business data is a precious commodity. With data theft becoming a real concern for individuals and companies alike, it's more important than ever to secure your data against theft and loss. Dell offers a range of DDP | E products to help keep your data where it belongs.

Dell Data Protection | Encryption includes two encryption types of solution offerings, hardware based or software based:

Hardware Based Full Volume Encryption*

Full Volume Encryption provides military-grade protection for your system without affecting performance. With FVE, DDP | E software products achieve one of the highest levels of U.S. Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) certifications for endpoint disk encryption, "FIPS 140-2, Level 3." (Requires purchase of DDP | E Hardware Crypto Accelerator)

Software-based Data Centric Encryption
Software-based encryption encrypts data stored on a mass storage device. A password-protected encrypted device is the safest, simplest way to protect data on a portable device such as a laptop or an external hard drive. With Dell's DDP | E software solutions, IT departments can enforce encryption policies whether data resides on a system drive or an external media device. This encryption is designed for mixed vendor environments, so it won't get in the way of existing IT processes such as patch management and authentication.
DDP | E Security Solution Products:

Personal Edition
No company is too small to require encryption of company data. Help secure your company and customer data with Dell Data Protection | Encryption Personal Edition, a comprehensive solution for your business that allows you to secure your organization's critical data while allowing end users to store encrypted information on external media. Locally managed, it's easy to download on individual systems so that the right people in your company have their data encrypted. You get the same encryption performance and features as the Enterprise Edition (shown below) but in an easy to use locally managed product, which allows you to continue working without performance interruption while protecting your data. Whether you need Data Protection for PC's on a special project, or if it is for specific departments within your company such as sales, finance or marketing, DDP | E Personal Edition is a smart solution for your needs. Buy the software by itself as part of your system or add the Hardware Encryption Accelerator card for Full Volume Encryption.

Hardware Crypto Accelerator*
Part of the Dell Data Protection | Encryption family of security products, Hardware Encryption Accelerator is a chip installed on your laptop or desktop that works directly with DDP | E Personal or Enterprise Edition software. When married with the software, it enables a Full Volume Encryption solution that provides military-grade, tamper-resistant security — in addition to simple-to-deploy, easy-to-manage and easy-to-audit endpoint protection for your infrastructure.

Dell Hardware Encryption Accelerator requires one of the following two software products to be a Full Volume Encryption solution offering:

· Dell Data Protection | Encryption Personal Edition (locally managed)

                                                    Or

· Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition (centrally managed)

Enterprise Edition

Help secure your company and customer data with Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition, a comprehensive solution for your entire organization. Centralized management and flexible policies allow you to secure your organization’s critical data while allowing end users to store encrypted information on external media. Buy Enterprise Edition as a software solution by itself for data-centric encryption or add the Hardware Encryption Accelerator card for Full Volume Encryption. To purchase Enterprise Edition you need to consult your account manager or contact Dell Sales for details.

External Media Edition
External media devices present specific security risks. Loss of an unprotected storage device such as a memory stick or a USB drive can lead to data loss and theft. Dell Data Protection | Encryption External Media Edition helps you lock down your sensitive data by:

· Determining who has access to your data and prevent those without permission from accessing it.
· Enacting password protection according to the policies you set.
· Providing Port Control capability that allows you to configure your ports to protect data leaving or entering your network.
· Protecting data on external storage devices such as USB drives, Compact Flash, SD cards, and even CD and DVD media when burned with supported software.
DDP | E External Media Edition requires a management console. Contact your Account Executive or a sales agent for more details.

•Eases deployment and policy enforcement
•Helps reduce total cost of ownership
•Provides secure recovery key escrow
