Check Point Endpoint Media Encryption and Port Protection (Pointsec)

Encryption software applies to all industries, the way you have to see the big picture is asking yourself, "How important is our data?".

Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition (DDPE)

DDPE is great if you want very specific data encrypted and managed. It's flexible in terms of configuration but also can be quite a pain to get configured right. It requires a lot of exclusions and does not play nice with Windows Updates. Usually the client needs to be updated before updates on Windows can be installed and sometimes a new version is no where in sight. The ATP is great but also requires extensive configurations as otherwise it has way too many false positives.

Symantec Encryption, a few management points led me to evaluate and not go with it.

Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition (DDPE)

We switched to McAfee Endpoint Encryption, which provides full-disk encryption. We saw fewer issues with McAfee Endpoint Encryption full-disk encryption than Credant full-disk encryption.

Return on Investment

Check Point Endpoint Media Encryption and Port Protection (Pointsec)

  • Decreasing vulnerability to attack is the key, it's the game to play and Pointsec plays it very well.
  • Key management systems and the various recovery options are very well thought out.
  • Full disk encryption vs. file or folder encryption system. With FDE data is encrypted automatically when it's stored on the hard disk making this the best solution.
