Sophos Central Device Encryption – Hard disk encryption with BitLocker and FileVault 2

Sophos really does offer a considerable product catalog when it comes to protecting a company. With the XG series and the "Synchronized Security" approach, firewall and endpoint came a little closer together last year and now jointly ensure law and order.

Protecting a system with constant monitoring against viruses, Trojans and other malicious attackers is just one measure to help you sleep better at night. To make your company even more secure, the next step is "encryption". With the new Sophos Central Device Encryption, you only need a few clicks.

In this blog post, we'll take a very brief look at "Sophos Central Device Encryption".

How does Central Device Encryption work?

Sophos Central Device Encryption is probably the simplest product in the Sophos Central portfolio. It helps you to activate hard disk encryption on any computer in your network with just a few clicks via the central management console "Sophos Central". This way, if a device containing company data is stolen, you don't have to worry about sensitive data falling into unauthorized hands.

For hard disk encryption, Sophos uses "BitLocker" for Windows and "FileVault 2" for MacOS. Sophos does not provide its own encryption, but uses the system's own encryption of the respective operating system.

Sophos Central Device Encryption is currently only available for Windows (BitLocker). The management of FileVault on Mac is scheduled by Sophos to early 2017.
