Check Point launches ZoneAlarm DataLock security offering

Automatically encrypts all hard drive content to protect private and confidential data

By CBR Staff Writer

Check Point Software Technologies has launched a new data security offering ZoneAlarm DataLock, for consumers and small businesses with laptops and netbooks, which automatically encrypts all hard drive content to protect private and confidential data, such as credit card numbers, social security information or financial documents, in the event of laptop loss or theft.

The company said that the new offering works in the background to protect all existing, new or changed files, including medical records, credit card information or personal photos. It also safeguards information users tend to forget, such as automatically-stored passwords, cookies, temporary internet files and recycle bin documents.

Equipped with Pre-boot Authentication, the ZoneAlarm DataLock prevents unauthorised users from accessing information stored on the protected laptop. It asks for the username and password before the operating system boot process begins, the company said.

Bari Abdul, vice president of consumer sales at Check Point, said: Unfortunately, too often the first time a person thinks about data encryption is after it’s been lost or stolen. With ZoneAlarm DataLock we are offering an easy-to-use solution that empowers consumers to safeguard their critical and personal information before misfortune happens.”
