Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition

Software-based Data Centric Encryption

Data-Centric Encryption, part of Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition, offers the assurance that your data is secure. It allows IT to easily enforce encryption policies, whether the data resides on the system drive or external media, and doesn’t require enduser intervention to enforce policies. As a perfect solution for mixed-vendor environments, Data-Centric Encryption provides FIPS-level protection and enables:

  • Easy deployment, management, audit and policy enforcement
  • Easy compliance management and auditing: Features one touch-compliance policy templates, remote management and quick system recovery
  • Fast transitions to new systems
  • Delivers sales and support from one source
  • Supports existing processes for authentication, patching and more
  • No defragmenting of your install base required
  • Comprehensive, flexible protection
  • System disk and port encryption in a single solution
  • Allows encryption of all data, except files essential to booting the operating system
  • Ability to encrypt based on end user profiles, data and groups within your organization

Hardware-based Full Volume Encryption

For customers needing a higher level of security that won’t break the bank, Dell offers Full Volume Encryption, part of Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition.1 Exclusive to select Dell Latitude laptops, OptiPlex desktops and Dell Precision workstations, you have the option to add a Hardware Encryption Accelerator that builds on Data Centric Encryption to add military-grade, tamper-resistant protection. All data on a drive is encrypted and the solution helps prevent attacks on crucial security information—all without slowing users down.

Full Volume Encryption features:

Comprehensive protection, higher level of encryption

  • One of the highest levels of United States Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 certifications for full disk encryption
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 3 military-grade security that offers tamper-resistant protection and identity-based authentication
  • All data is encrypted
  • Hardware Encryption Accelerator1 that offloads encryption activities to keep users productive
  • Comprehensive protection — the encryption key is protected by the system firmware, a Hardware Encryption Accelerator and the Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
  • Help reduce disruptions to end user and IT work flow
  • Data protection for all removable media types in a flexible, non-intrusive way
  • One agent to deploy for both software-based Data Centric Encryption and hardware-based Full Volume Encryption
  • No required disk defragmenting

External Media Edition

Many organizations are already protecting data on endpoint system drives, but may not have a solution to safeguard external media. This leaves a critical security gap that could compromise intellectual property, as well as customer and employee data. Through External Media Encryption, Dell offers policy-based external media protection and port access. Available on it’s own, or included with both the software- and hardware-based versions of Dell Data Protection | Encryption Enterprise Edition, it enables:

Simple deployment, strong policy enforcement

  • Manage, encrypt and report on any type of USB and removable media (including optical devices)
  • All encryption keys are escrowed for ease of recovery
  • Put IT in control: Sets policies for protection without depending on end users to enforce them
  • Encryption rules are tied to the user profile in Microsoft Windows Server Active Directory (AD) tools

Flexible protection to reduce workflow disruptions

  • No special formatting or “containers” will be created on the removable drive
    • No forced copy, removal or destruction of pre-existing data
    • No lengthy wait time while the USB drive is formatting
    • Encrypts only the sensitive data on external media (such as SD and XD cards) without changing the fundamental operation of the device so that personal information and your organization’s protected data can coexist
  • Only a single login is necessary, not every time users want to access the drive whether on a single system or multiple

Comprehensive encryption that helps you on your path to compliance

  • Set granular policies, automatically update and report
  • Gain visibility into external media use across the environment
  • Produce customized reports

BitLocker Manager

If you’re looking for a way to manage Microsoft BitLocker—an encryption solution included with Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise operating systems— Dell offers BitLocker Manager, which enables you to see, manage and audit your resources and software. BitLocker Manager enterprise-level management features include:

  • Centralized escrow of recovery keys/passwords
  • Centralized reporting and auditing
  • Centralized management of policies
  • Full control of all policies without using native Active Directory
  • Improved enforcement of users who are Local Administrators
