Lenovo at RSA will launch SecureDoc for Lenovo, a full-disk encryption (FDE) solution for central management of new self-encryption hard drives that meet the Opal standard issued by the Trusted Computing Group. Lenovo ThinkPad laptops and ThinkCentre desktops will be among the first PCs to offer Opal standard FDE drives for an enhanced level of security and manageability for IT administrators.
SecureDoc also delivers fully-managed software encryption for PCs without self-encrypting hard drives, providing flexibility and a migration path for large organizations with strong security requirements, such as in healthcare, banking, education, insurance and government. SecureDoc provides transparent pre-boot support for finger-print readers built into select Lenovo ThinkPad laptops and ThinkCentre desktops. The integration of FDE with multi-factor authentication allows organizations to strengthen data security without negatively impacting productivity.
SecureDoc is available on current and upcoming ThinkPad laptops as well as ThinkCentre desktops using the new Opal self-encrypting drives from Hitachi and Seagate Technology or unencrypted drives.
