SafeGuard is deployed on all laptops to provide full disk encryption to protect our companies and clients data at all times. It also allows us to monitor that encryption status of all our company laptops.

  • Integrates with Windows seamlessly.
  • Data Recovery where the hard drive is having mechanical issues.
  • Expand policy management.
  • Performance of full disk encryption.
  • Positive - mitigate lost or stolen laptops.
  • Positive - data at rest is automatically protected from unauthorized users.
  • Positive - easy roll out to enterprise or company-wide with provided tools.
  • Negative - cost and expertise needed to setup correctly.
The only other one we looked at was Symantec endpoint encryption this seemed less feature reach and less user friendly.
Enforcing full disk in encryption in a corporate or enterprise level IT department.

Not ideal if performance is critical, SSD hard drives can be used to mitigate performance.
