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 last year and are now jointly ensuring law and order.
Protecting a system with constant control against viruses, Trojans and other malicious attackers is only one way to sleep better at night. To make your company even more secure, the next step is called “encryption”. But with the new Sophos Central Device Encryption, it only takes a few clicks.
In this blog post, we’ll take a quick look at Sophos Central Device Encryption.
How does Central Device Encryption work?
Sophos Central Device Encryption is probably the simplest product in Sophos Central’s portfolio. It helps you activate hard disk encryption on any computer in your network with just a few clicks from the Sophos Central management console. If a device containing company data is stolen, you don’t have to worry about sensitive data falling into the wrong hands.
BitLocker for Windows and
FileVault 2 for MacOS. This means that Sophos does not use its own encryption, but uses the native encryption of each 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.
