An essential security component for GDPR compliance
Keeping Data safe on portable devices to GDPR standards requires Full Disk Encryption.
Pink Connect recommends DESlock+ encryption, ensuring no unauthorised personnel can view or manipulate data or content on any portable device, even if the hard drive is removed and placed in a reader.
DESlock+ is “full disk encryption” software that ensures all disk contents become humanly unreadable when the computer is turned off. DESlock+ encryption uses AES 256bit bank-grade encryption, making it impossible to crack, with 1.1 x 1077 combinations.
Having DESlock+ encryption installed and active on devices within your organisation will ensure compliance with Article 32 of GDPR. The regulation is being enforced from 25th May 2018. This legislation applies to all organisations storing and processing personal/sensitive information. In addition, DESlock+ can also securely “shred” or “Write-over” any data that is no longer required, or that has been requested by the subject to be destroyed.
DESlock+ also encrypts USB drives, CDs, DVDs and most importantly emails. Emails are extremely important to keep secure, being far and away the most popular way to transmit messages containing highly sensitive information. Encrypting personal data that is moving from one location to another is essential, ensuring confidentiality if it is intercepted by an attacker.
DESlock+ allows organisations to control multiple devices over the internet, making it hugely beneficial to manage employees who work remotely, ensuring they have access to their computer if they have forgotten their password. Having DESlock+ in place will not impact the processing speed of your computer’s CPU, nor will it impact the productivity of your employees, making it seamless in the workplace.
