It is clear that attitudes are changing. It is now very common to work out of a home Office to save time during travel or even simply because today’s professionals have not necessarily got a physical office. As more people have made their laptop their virtual office containing all data critical and essential to their professional activities, the loss or theft of the computer has become a very stressful issue and can lead to serious consequences for companies if data falls into the wrong hands.
Origin Storage, not satisfied to offer just the external encrypted hard drives, known as the Data Locker, have gone one step further by offering secure internal hard drive solutions for your notebook.
Encryption to secure all of your data
The proposed solution is to change the laptop hard drive and replace it with an Enigma SED (self encrypting drive). Thus the new data saved on your laptop will be encrypted (256-bit AES) on-the-fly and no loss of speed is noticeable, on read or write, thanks to a system of hardware encryption and not software, as seen by some manufacturers.
Ease of deployment and installation
Enigma disks are delivered with a mounting kit designed to perfectly fit the brand and model of laptop. A cable and cloning software are included with all Enigma drives for facilitating the transfer of your data on your current hard disk to the Enigma solution, which guarantees a maximum level of security for all the stored data. Acronis Cloning software makes a copy of your data and operating system to the new Enigma SED, taking around an hour for 120Gb’s, therefore providing minimum downtime to encrypt your data.
Once the Enigma SED is installed, Winmagic will ask you to enter an administrator password for each start-up of the notebook; this is what is called PBA (pre boot authentication). If the password entered is correct, then the PC launches the BIOS initialisation phase and then launches the OS.
Our Enigma drives are already available for many brands of laptops with capacities of 250GB at the price of £232.00 and 500GB at the price of £259.00. Unlike competitors, it is important to note that the Enigma solution requires no annual license or update fees of any kind. The selling price includes the use of the licenses for different software provided throughout the life of your laptop.
To find the appropriate solution, you can visit the Enigma website (http://www.enigmased.com).
Enigma disks should be destined for every notebook owner wishing to see data protected under any circumstance (governmental agencies, financial services, healthcare, insurance, military, and many others…). Now, companies with a large park of laptops equipped with traditional hard drives will be forced to change them for a secure solution in order to protect data and ensure compliancy as defined by the ICO.
The Enigma solution is simple to implement and provides a level of security for all embedded data. If you lose your computer or it is stolen, do not panic. Your data is protected to the highest level of encryption available in the commercial world.
