IT Security firm Dekar has launched version 2 of its advanced disk encryption software Dekart Private Disk Multifactor that utilizes smart card and fingerprint authentication to protect encrypted information.
Tailored to meet today´s security requirements, Private Disk offers a fast and efficient way to protect sensitive data without long deployment procedures or personnel training. Dekart offers the only disk encryption solution on the market today that combines the industry´s best-of-breed NIST-certified encryption, innovative Disk Firewall mechanism, 64-bit platform compatibility, USB disk portability and smart card and fingerprint authentication into a cost effective and easy-to-deploy solution.
Sensitive data are not only encrypted, but are protected with Dekart´s innovative Disk Firewall mechanism – a unique technology that creates a white-list of “trusted” applications allowed to access the encrypted disk. If a specific application is not found in the white-list of programs, it will be unable to read or alter the confidential information stored on the virtual encrypted disk.
Using the Dekart disk encryption program, organizations can reduce the risk of data lost or stolen and comply with industry and regulatory mandates, such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act, Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) and other regulations like the Federal Privacy Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
