Data protection - Full Disk Encryption

Author: Sharad

To address the issue of data leaks from stolen / missing laptops, the concept of full hard disk encryption is coming as a savior. Encryption is performed at hardware level using ASIC chips. With full hard disk encryption, every sector of the hard disk is encrypted using the most advanced encryption algorithms. Using full hard disk encryption for data security is the best and only true protection for highly confidential information that is stored on a computer hard disk. Seagate is working to create the first Full Disk Encryption enabled Hard Drive. More info about Seagate's FDE solution. Other product from Guardianedge.
