WORCESTER, MA (PRWEB) August 30, 2004 -
SafeGuard Utimaco U.S.A. has announced the availability of SafeGuardÂ® Easy 4.0, the newest version of its full hard disk encryption software for personal computing. The new release adds powerful features delivering new data security functionality for mobile computing users.
SafeGuard Easy is the ultimate data security software solution for encryption and user authentication of PDAs, laptops, workstations, PCs, email, and networks. The newest version, SafeGuard Easy 4.0, adds significant new features for mobile computing users, including enabling PC users to secure their data while making use of the power-saving hibernation mode on their notebooks, and encrypting their data on USB sticks and memory cards. The new release also supports Wake on LAN (WOL) functionality so that IT managers can securely take advantage of todayÂs modern software distribution methods.
The hibernation feature on notebook PCs enables users who temporarily stop using their notebook to simply pause and then later restore their work. This user-friendly, battery-saving hibernation mode is supported in Microsoft Windows 2000 and all later versions. SafeGuard Easy 4.0 enables users to ensure secure hibernation by encrypting generated image data on the hard drive, thus keeps the data secure at all times, regardless of whether the PC is in use or in hibernation mode.
SafeGuard Easy 4.0 extends encryption to removable media such as USB sticks and memory cards, as these are even more easily stolen than the notebooks themselves. This functionality allows the implementation of a secure data medium exchange within the company, while simultaneously protecting the contents of mobile data media against unauthorized access.
The new Wake-On-LAN support of SafeGuard Easy 4.0 guarantees secure software distribution with active hard disk encryption. This provides an ideal solution to maintaining security during booting and the much-needed convenience for the administrator in large organizations unmatched by any other product.
The SafeGuard Easy hard disk encryption software solution provides an electronic fortress for the PC, providing complete data protection for laptops and workstations. SafeGuard Easy incorporates boot protection; pre-boot user authentication, single sign on (SSO), and full hard drive encryption using independently approved algorithms which guarantee against unauthorized access and hacker attacks. The most robust security tool in the industry, SafeGuard Easy is virtually invisible to the end user, delivering advanced security, ultimate reliability, transparent user interface, ease of deployment, and high security certification.
