Securing data and staying compliant
The majority of mobile professionals carry laptops containing confidential company
information. Passwords alone do not protect data. The best way to make sure your data
is secure at rest is by encrypting the computer's hard drive. As a part of compliance
requirements, you are likely to be able to verify which computers in your organization are
encrypted. And in the case of lost or stolen laptops, organizations also need to provide
proof that these missing devices are encrypted.
Sophos Central Device Encryption lets you centrally manage Windows BitLocker native
device encryption. With Sophos Central’s web-based management, there is no server
to deploy and no need to configure back-end key servers. You can deploy and start
securing data in minutes. For existing Sophos Central Endpoint Protection customers,
there is no additional agent required. Over-the-air deployment means that it takes only a
couple of clicks to push out the new encryption policy. And, it lets you easily secure data
on remote laptops.
