SafeGuard full disk encryption

The core of SafeGuard Enterprise is the encryption of data on different data storage devices. Full disk encryption can be volume- or file-based with different keys and algorithms.

Files are encrypted transparently. When users open, edit and save files, they are not prompted for encryption or decryption.

As a security officer, you specify the settings for encryption in a security policy of the type Device Protection. For further information, see Working with policies, and see Device Protection.

Note: The full disk encryption functionality described in the following sections can only be used with Windows 7 BIOS-based systems. If you use other systems such as UEFI or Windows 8, make use of the integrated Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption functionality. For more information refer to BitLocker Drive Encryption.
