AlertBoot Launches Cloud-Based Data Encryption Service

AlertBoot protects users against data loss by managing encryption keys
Las Vegas, NV -- April 12, 2010 -- AlertBoot, a leading provider of full disk encryption, today announced the launch of its easy-to-use, cloud-based data encryption service. Designed as a simple-to-deploy, managed solution, AlertBoot's Web-based encryption service provides organizations of any size with cost-effective, scalable and highly secure hard disk encryption.

Built on the leading Sophos Safeguard Enterprise encryption platform, AlertBoot's solution allows organizations to deliver powerful encryption services to protect all of the sensitive data on their laptops, desktops and USB drives. By offering full disk encryption in the cloud, AlertBoot is allowing its customers to take the onus off of IT departments, and enabling end users to more securely protect their sensitive data, while simplifying and lowering total cost of ownership.

"Many organizations are finding it difficult to implement and manage security as part of their day-to-day business operations. Although all companies are at risk for lost or stolen data, many do not have the resources necessary for full data encryption," said Tim Maliyil, CEO of AlertBoot. "With AlertBoot's managed data encryption service, we are taking the pressure off of companies and their employees. By providing an easy-to-use, cloud-based solution, AlertBoot simplifies encryption for organizations and their end-users, giving individuals the flexibility to focus on their business objectives, instead of security operations."

AlertBoot provides users with added protection against data loss by removing the burden of managing the encryption keys. If an endpoint with unmanaged full disk encryption experiences software corruption, all of the data on that computer is essentially lost with no way to recover it. With AlertBoot's cloud-based solution, the encryption keys are kept in the company's cluster of servers in off-site data centers, with many secure, logged and auditable processes. This allows the end user access to a machine or the encrypted data.

As the only complete Web-based management console available for this market with easy two-factor authentication, AlertBoot also offers its customers AlertBoot Advanced Content Encryption at no extra cost. With this service, organizations are able to restrict a user's ability to transfer data to removable devices and drives that are not authorized for use with company machines. Furthermore, Advanced Content Encryption allows authorized end users to encrypt and protect data on portable USB drives, regardless of where they are connected.

AlertBoot's data security services are paired with the most comprehensive reporting and auditing features on the market today to offer the first, complete, fully-managed mobile data security service. These business-friendly reports are easily customizable and allow organizations to keep track of the encrypted data. In addition, AlertBoot offers its customers a securely-managed 24/7 helpdesk at no additional charge. Through AlertBoot's helpdesk, users can recover their passwords by visiting their own dedicated support Web site or through AlertBoot's personal password recovery helpdesk.
