Softex Announces Data Protection Solution Self-Encrypting Drives

SecureDrive take advantage of the full disk encryption security features of self-encrypting drives

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Softex Inc, the established market leader in Enterprise Single Sign On (ESSO) and Identity and Access Management (IAM) Solutions, announces SecureDrive, an addition to its security suite of products to take advantage of the full disk encryption security features of self-encrypting drives (SEDs).

Hard-drive vendors are now building self-encrypted drives (SEDs) to adhere to the OPAL standard defined by the Trusted Computing Group. OPAL hard drives eliminate data breaches as a result of stolen or lost PCs, by ensuring that every byte of data on the hard drive is encrypted using the hard drive's internal electronics.

Softex's SecureDrive product allows for easy set up and configuration of the encryption and access rights and allows for multiple authentications mechanisms such as windows password, fingerprint, etc. SecureDrive also allows administrators to remotely perform a secure erase of the data from the drive to simplify PC end of life processing. Seamless integration with the new Intel vPro Technology Remote Encryption SDK allows for PCs (powered on or off) to be remotely unlocked by the I/T administrator to perform management tasks such as software installation and patch management.

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

"Softex is excited to add SecureDrive to its existing security suite of products that takes full advantage of the encryption features of self-encrypted OPAL drives," said Vishal Jhaveri, Vice President, Marketing, Softex Incorporated.
