Softex launches data protection offering SecureDrive

Provides full disk encryption security features for self-encrypting drives

By CBR Staff Writer

Softex, a provider of Enterprise Single Sign On (ESSO) and Identity and Access Management (IAM) offerings, has launched SecureDrive, which provides full disk encryption security features for self-encrypting drives (SEDs).

The SecureDrive product allows for easy set up and configuration of the encryption and access rights and allows for multiple authentications mechanisms.

It allows administrators to remotely perform a secure erase of the data from the drive to simplify PC end of life processing, and integrates with the new Intel vPro Technology Remote Encryption SDK.

In addition, the integration allows PCs (powered on or off) to be remotely unlocked by the I/T administrator to perform management tasks such as software installation and patch management.

The company said that SecureDrive Client edition manages encryption for standalone PCs, while SecureDrive Enterprise edition allows centralised manageability including integration with the current OmniPass Management Console and third-party management consoles supporting Intel vPro Technology.

Softex marketing vice president Vishal Jhaveri said that the company is excited to add SecureDrive to its existing security suite of products that takes full advantage of the encryption features of self-encrypted OPAL drives.
