As the economy continues to decline and the number and costs of data breaches soar, it is more important than ever before for companies to ensure confidential data remains safe. Though a number of technologies for data protection are available, encryption is recognized by experts as the most effective data security technology. Encryption protects users against data loss or theft by making data unreadable to unauthorized users. SafeGuard Enterprise, from Utimaco, is a data security platform that protects and encrypts data on desktops, laptops, portable media and devices. This DoD Data-at-Rest Tiger Team (DARTT) recommended solution is the only one to combine a Lenovo fingerprint logon with full disk encryption to ensure the highest level of data security, allowing federal, state and local agencies to use it for the strict data security needs that are required.
