We have seen significant interest from clients in BitLocker, and its integration with AlertBoot will enhance the drive encryption's value by adding extra features like powerful reporting, key management and backup, and remote installation and management.

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) February 19, 2014

AlertBoot, a leading provider of mobile device management and full disk encryption management services, is announcing today that it has entered the beta phase for the integration of Microsoft Windows BitLocker, the native Windows operating system full disk encryption software, into the AlertBoot data security suite.

"Microsoft has a FIPS-validated disk encryption solution that is bundled with premium Windows editions," noted Tim Maliyil, CEO and founder of AlertBoot. "Because of its native nature to the OS, it has certain advantages, such as working under UEFI without problems. We have seen significant interest from clients in BitLocker, and its integration with AlertBoot will enhance the drive encryption's value by adding extra features like powerful reporting, key management and backup, and remote installation and management."

AlertBoot already facilitates the installation and management of encryption on Windows 7 and Windows 8 operating systems. In addition, operating systems that power smart devices – like iOS and Android OS – can also be secured, making AlertBoot an effective and efficient solution for BYOD work environments where multiple platforms must be protected against data breaches.

The ease of use and low cost of ownership of AlertBoot has proven popular with the medical sector where HIPAA compliance is required; the financial sector that must comply with Sabarnes-Oxley (SOX) rules; and the legal sector where client confidentiality is paramount, and is growing the cloud-based security service in Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Following the AlertBoot integration, users of BitLocker drive encryption will enjoy these extra security features:

  •     Remote wipe of encrypted machines.
  •     Backup of encryption keys to the AlertBoot cloud to prevent loss of data and other contingencies.
  •     Leverage the use of TPM hardware, when available, to securely store keys on encrypted endpoint machines.
  •     Provide cloud-based management and key escrow of BitLocker protected machines, a feature that is unavailable elsewhere.

In addition, combining the powerful AlertBoot reporting engine produces an excellent solution for businesses. Endpoint security status updates deliver audit and monitoring reports required for keeping on top of potential security incidents, and the reporting engine has already proven effective when clients require documented evidence of encryption, a common requirement under data security laws and regulations, for those instances where devices are lost or stolen.
