Hard Drive Encryption

 

Protect data with hard drive encryption for PCs and laptops

Transparent deployment, with no performance degradation

With AlertBoot, both installation and data encryption seamlessly run in the background with no performance degradation to the users’ machines. And, at between 3-5MB, the AlertBoot package is as much as 90% smaller than competing encryption software.

Pre-boot authentication

AlertBoot full disk encryption begins in the pre-boot, which ensures that unauthorized users cannot bypass the boot to the operating system.

Active directory and LDAP support

AlertBoot offers a single-sign-on option that allows users to reuse their Windows passwords to authenticate in with one login screen.

24/7 secure password recovery with AlertBoot's Helpdesk

Users can recover their passwords by visiting their own dedicated support website or through our personal helpdesk for password recovery — available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

More data protection features

The AlertBoot solution includes secure hibernation, secure password-protected screensavers, and the ability to block hardware ports on a machine. 

 

AlertBoot Central 

 

Simplify your security with centralized management

AlertBoot Central is, quite literally, your central hub of operations for encrypting all of your machines. It offers convenient and secure access for you to create security policies, manage users, and deploy data encryption packages.

Easy-to-use, console-based tools

AlertBoot Central enables web-based management of all AlertBoot client applications over TCP/IP. All users, machines, files, recovery keys, and other functions can be administered remotely and transparently. And, with AlertBoot Port Control, you can centrally manage the types of computer ports that can be used.

Remote installation and deployment

One small file installs AlertBoot full disk encryption on the latest Windows® laptops and desktops. A deployment of over 1,000 users can be completed in as little as one day, and the number of users that you can manage from AlertBoot Central is virtually unlimited.

Complete logs and reporting for compliance

AlertBoot Central comes complete with a fully-integrated Custom Reporting Engine to assist organizations in regulatory or auditing compliance. This reporting engine uses the logs and data collected by AlertBoot to make compliance reporting as painless as possible.

An added layer of authorization

Considering the power of AlertBoot Central, it’s critical that anyone logging into the console is authorized. That’s why we provide an extra layer of security using SecureAuth from MultiFactor Corp. SecureAuth relies on encrypted X509 Client certs to prevent phishing, DNS, and man-in-the-middle attacks, without the IT headaches that come with other certificate-based solutions.

AlertBoot's Reporting allows you to easily access and report on real-time data from encrypted machines without the need for paper logs, manual audits, and overtime pay. Organizations can audit their PCs and laptops quickly and easily, and output standard compliance reports.

Fully integrated with AlertBoot Central

AlertBoot Central's web-based architecture makes it easy to collect and compile data such as login attempts and information, user actions, and the disk encryption status of your machines—and to push new upgrades, users, and policies OUT to your machines as well.

Comprehensive auditing and compliance reporting

Collecting far-reaching data helps increase the overall level of accountability for end-users and administrators alike. it provides a comprehensive audit trail that enables you to extensively report on statistics for compliance and regulatory-mandated purposes:

  • Design your own audit reports that fit your own unique and specific needs.
  • Create custom formulas and filters to get exactly the data you need.
