Foolproof your BitLocker deployments
BitLocker encryption is a solid starting point for device encryption on native OS, but enterprises need more if they are to have a true comprehensive strategy for securing all devices across all platforms. WinMagic can manage your BitLocker deployment, leverage your existing investment and layer additional security functionality to fully realize the benefits of endpoint or device encryption on all platforms. You’ll enjoy more granular control through better user and administrator flexibility as well as unique pre-boot authentication technology to lower IT costs and increase efficiency.
One console, many possibilities
MBAM (Microsoft BitLocker administration and monitoring) is a good solution for managing BitLocker deployments but, as a Windows-only solution, it can’t manage everything in a typical enterprise. Microsoft BitLocker can’t provide encryption for MacOS, Linux and other systems that require security and protection, and other encryption can’t be managed by MBAM. SecureDoc is platform agnostic, not limited to Windows-based devices and protects sensitive data residing on multiple endpoints such as laptops, desktops, servers, removable media and IoT devices.
Bitlocker management simplified
SecureDoc improves on BitLocker’s encryption capabilities. Designed with the heterogeneous IT environment in mind, SecureDoc organizes all security-related management under one centralized enterprise server. That includes policies, password rules, and the manageability of encryption across SEDs, TPM, PC, Mac and Linux platforms.
Using SecureDoc, enterprises can now manage BitLocker within this single umbrella.
Add pre-boot network authentication to BitLocker
SecureDoc further enhances BitLocker by being the only data encryption and management solution that supports pre-boot network authentication (PBNA) for BitLocker through its PBConnex technology.
PBConnex uses network-based resources to authenticate users, enforce access controls, and manage endpoint devices before the operating system loads. It means security is enhanced through authentication at pre-boot rather than at the Windows login. And it improves policy protection by making it easy for administrators to push system updates.
Simplified data security
WinMagic’s SecureDoc enhances your BitLocker deployment by making it simpler, more secure and easier to manage.
- Secure and self-help password recovery
- Simplified password recovery
- Password synchronization, single sign-on and multi-factor authentication
- Support for self-encrypting drives
- No TPM chip required
- Multiple platform support
BitLocker Management – Is MBAM right for you?
Microsoft MBAM – is it right for your BitLocker deployment?
Modern enterprises are increasingly turning to endpoint encryption to safeguard their mission critical data on multiple devices. For many of them, BitLocker managed by Microsoft Bitlocker Administration & Monitoring (Microsoft MBAM) seems to be the simple choice. But did you know, you could actually be increasing your risk if all your organisation’s specific security needs aren’t met?
Consider the risks to business operations and compliance when comparing your options:
