File and Folder Encryption (FFE)

FFE is an upgrade option for SecureDoc Standalone edition. With FFE users can selectively encrypt files and folders on their device, ensuring that specific information that could be highly sensitive and confidential remains that way. The ability to use familiar ‘drag & drop’ features to put spreadsheets, documents and other data in an encrypted and secure folder makes it very easy for users to manage sensitive data effectively and securely. Additionally, users can encrypt folders on shared network drives to ensure that data left on the broader network is secured.

For added security and peace of mind, SecureDoc also offers multiple ways for users to authenticate. Whether it’s a password in the pre-boot environment, a fingerprint sensor, smart card or token, SecureDoc can manage and ensure the authentication requirements you need are available and ensure maximum security.

SecureDoc uses a FIPS 140-2 certified AES 256-bit cryptographic engine to encrypt data and is Common Criteria EAL4 certified by the Communications Security Establishment. SecureDoc encrypts the entire hard drive (full-disk encryption) on a sector-by-sector basis.

Removable Media Container Encryption (RMCE)

RMCE gives users the ability to not only fully encrypt a USB but create an encrypted container on a removable USB. This differs from traditional removable media encryption inasmuch as the user isn’t required to encrypt the full volume of the media. With RMCE users can effectively create an encrypted partition on the removable media leaving the remainder of the volume unencrypted and free to use for other purposes. When using RMCE a Media Viewer is also added to the USB drive so that customers or partners that do not use SecureDoc can view, edit and save the files in the container.

Seamless Upgrade

Your business and business needs will likely change and grow and SecureDoc can keep pace. WinMagic is able to offer a means to accommodate both security and management as your device portfolio grows. Should this need arise that your business requires centralized management and control, you can seamlessly upgrade to SecureDoc Enterprise edition and SecureDoc Enterprise Server (SES). Ideal for environments with ten devices or more to manage licenses can be seamlessly transitioned to Enterprise grade with minimal impact to end users and can accommodate tens of thousands of users. If you also require the ability to manage mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, SES can handle it as well.

The Leading Innovator in Full-Disk Encryption

WinMagic’s SecureDoc Enterprise Edition maintains end user productivity while ensuring maximum security and transparency in regular work flow. Whether it’s SecureDoc’s software encryption, or Microsoft’s BitLocker or easily integrating with industry-standard technologies such as OPAL-compliant Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs), SecureDoc allows businesses to deal with the security of their IT environment efficiently. Additional features available SecureDoc Enterprise Edition include; PBConnex, Removable Media Container Encryption (RMCE) and File and Folder Encryption (FFE).

SecureDoc Enterprise for Windows Advantages

  • Reduce TCO with PBConnex - less time spent on laborintensive tasks (Password resets, Device Staging etc.)
  • Opal SED Support – manage hardware encrypting drives in mixed environments
  • Supports all version of Windows – Win 10, Win 8, Win 7, Vista, XP
  • BitLocker Management with PBConnex support

Microsoft® BitLocker Support

BitLocker is a commonly used data security feature that encrypts data, and BitLocker users leveraging SecureDoc Enterprise Sever (SES) management can remove many common encryption headaches. SecureDoc BitLocker management helps fill a key gap in this native encryption offering.

SecureDoc management for Bitlocker delivers:

  • Better control and security for BitLocker through the enablement of strong user authentication and multi-factor authentication. Administrators can leverage existing network log-in credentials (instead of only a PIN) in addition to multi-factor authentication with smart cards or other tokens to lock down system access and guarantee high-level security of devices
  • PBConnex support - SecureDoc allows for pre-boot network authentication – authenticating the users via the local network. This also enables IT managers to reset users’ passwords and make Active Directory role assignments without needing to visit each machine, and without users completing complicated password-challenge-response queries. This saves a dramatic amount of IT time without sacrificing the security of devices.

Opal Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) Support

Self-encrypting hard drives, or SEDs, are fast becoming the standard enterprise solution for protecting data—with strong, easy-to-use security built right into each storage device.

With Opal-compliant SEDs, data encryption, is always on and data access requires authentication however you need a third party solution to enable data protection. That’s where WinMagic’s SecureDoc steps in simplifying SED management, with features that give you complete control over how your data is stored and protected. SecureDoc collects encryption key information from the self-encrypted drive and provides the same central control, escrow and protection offered to its software-encrypted drives.
