SecureDoc for Windows 7 supports Trusted Computer Group’s (TCG) Opal standard for Self Encrypting Hard Drives
Toronto, Ontario – January 11, 2010 – WinMagic® (www.winmagic.com), the innovative leader in disk encryption, today launches SecureDoc for Windows 7. SecureDoc v4.91 supports Microsoft Windows 7 in both 32-bit and 64-bit kernel modes. SecureDoc for Windows 7 takes advantage of the efficiencies of the 64 bit kernel to make it easier than ever before to protect all data stored on servers, desktops, laptops and removable media with transparent, ‘always-on’ full-disk encryption.
SecureDoc v4.9 effectively and seamlessly supports Fujitsu, Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate, Toshiba, and other TCG Opal compliant self-encrypting drives (SEDs). SecureDoc’s OPAL support adds substantial security, manageability and interoperability benefits to SEDs, including rich multi-factor authentication. Organizations can now maximize their ROI on IT security expenditures by having SecureDoc manage “standard” hard drives and the release of Opal compliant hard drives in their heterogeneous IT environments.
“Complete data security requires seamless protection across numerous devices, and so we developed SecureDoc for Windows 7 to ensure that organizations migrating from earlier versions of Windows can do so without the risk of damaging data breaches,” said Garry McCracken, Vice President of Technology Partnerships of WinMagic Inc. “SecureDoc has been designed to operate transparently in the background, so organizations installing Windows 7 can benefit from SecureDoc’s transparent enterprise-class data protection without having to sacrifice any of Windows 7’s innovative new user- and administrator-friendly functionality.”
Already widely utilized by government agencies and commercial enterprises worldwide, SecureDoc now makes it simpler than ever for organizations running Windows 7 to deploy transparent, ‘always-on’ full-disk encryption. Users benefit from SecureDoc’s seamless and reliable operation and solid support features while administrators benefit from a more intuitive GUI incorporated in the SecureDoc Enterprise Server that provides powerful central management and reporting across multiple operating systems and endpoints from a single console – making rapid deployment and user support simpler than ever before to significantly reduce the total cost of ownership.
Other features and benefits of SecureDoc for Windows 7 include:
- TCG OPAL Compliant Self Encrypting Drives (SEDs) Support
- Improved hosting services
- Newly supported Tokens and Smart Card Devices
- XploreTech Tablet PC support
- SecureDoc for Mac now supporting DoD CAC and PIV cards
- WinMagic support tokens from SPYRUS and Sony
- Axalto Smart Card Security
- BlockMaster Security offers USB security with SafeStick
SecureDoc for Windows 7 also supports and manages hardware-encrypted disk drives in Windows 7 machines, such as the Seagate® Momentus® FDE and BlackArmor™ drives as well as the TCG “Opal” specification drives. As a result, organizations have the flexibility to deploy any combination of hardware and/or software-based encryption – or transition between the two – with full transparency for users and a consistent management interface for administrators. This makes it easy to customize data protection to meet any security protocol to ‘future-proof’ investment in encryption.
