Latitude E6420 Hardware Encryption Accelerator

I have purchased a Latitude E6420 with the Dell Data Protection along with the Hardware Encryption Accelerator.

I had to reinstall the OS and I can't find the driver for the Accelerator.

It appears in the device manager as Networking and Computing Encryption/Decryption Controller.

The Dell Data Protection | Encryption software works, but without the driver for the encryption controller it won't do hardware encryption, only software encryption. I have been getting the run around from Dell for days. It isn't on the drivers and downloads page for my system.

Can anyone help me?

Re: Latitude E6420 Hardware Encryption Accelerator

I have already purchased this software. I purchased it with the laptop. They didn't send me media to re-install the software when I had to re-install the OS. I was able to get the software from the company, but not the driver for the controller, meaning the software is effectively useless.
