Softex unveils SecureDrive enabled by 2010 Intel Core vPro technology

Allows organisations to remotely manage self-encrypted OPAL drives

By CBR Staff Writer

Softex, a provider of enterprise single sign on (ESSO) and identity and access management (IAM) offerings, has extended its security suite of products with the launch of SecureDrive to utilise disk encryption security features of OPAL drives and remote, management features of the new 2010 Intel Core vPro technology.

According to Softex, the new offering allows for easy set up and configuration of the encryption and access rights and multiple authentications mechanisms such as fingerprint, smart card, RFID cards and TPM passphrase.

In addition, SecureDrive also allows administrators to remotely perform a secure erase of the data from the drive to simplify PC end of life processing. Integration with the new Intel vPro Technology Remote Encryption SDK allows for PC’s to be remotely unlocked by the IT administrator to perform management tasks.

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