  • (1888PressRelease) July 02, 2008 - Lucerne, Switzerland – SECUDE International AG announces the release of FinallySecure™ 9.1 with Centralized Management to its Data Protection portfolio. FinallySecure is the world’s only hybrid software– or hardware– based Full Disk Encryption. FinallySecure enables early adoption and migration to the upcoming wave of hardware–based FDE technologies such as Seagate Momentus Full Disk Encryption (FDE) disk drives.

    Many enterprises struggle with the performance impact of software-based encryption solutions and are searching for a solution. While hardware juggernauts such as Seagate, Hitachi, Fujitsu, and Intel have already announced their continued push into the hardware-based encryption and security market, few enterprises are willing to migrate to the new, faster technology without robust central management. FinallySecure 9.1 Enterprise allows companies to manage their legacy FDE systems while adapting to the new technology efficiently and effectively.

    “Do you know where your company laptops are?” asks Tristan Kromer, Vice President of Data Protection Division, “Enterprises require encryption, not only to protect company data from being stolen, but also to enforce company policy with central management. If an employee leaves the company without returning their laptop, FinallySecure can erase that hard drive remotely or just temporarily decommission it. This sort of flexible central management system, applied to both software- and hardware- FDE, allows companies to protect their data, even when they cannot protect their laptops.”

    FinallySecure provides remote configuration, remote decommissioning, an intuitive user interface, and synchronization with Active Directory. FinallySecure 9.1 Enterprise with FinallySecure Management Console 1.0 fulfills critical business needs by allowing customer migration from software to hardware-based FDE, all with unlimited number of users and group policies.

    Partnering with hardware vendors for encryption also unlocks other advantages. In addition to increased performance, hardware-based FDE compartmentalizes the encryption algorithms on the hard disk drive itself. This eliminates the possibility that a virus or bugs in the overall OS can corrupt the encryption and result in the loss of data.

    FinallySecure allows businesses to survive, adapt and grow in a heterogeneous IT eco-system.
