WinMagic SecureDoc Receive FIPS 140-2

By | September 20, 2006

WinMagic SecureDoc solution for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/2003 is the first full-disk encryption technology to receive FIPS 140-2 Level 1 and 2 validations from the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment.

As the only solution to enable government agencies and corporations to incorporate full-disk encryption that meets all Level 1 and 2 criteria within a complete security solution, SecureDoc is now uniquely positioned to meet the laptop security directive of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the smart card requirements of HSPD-12.

Suited to today’s mobile workforce, SecureDoc full-disk encryption protects all data on desktops, laptops, and handheld devices by encrypting the entire hard drive before the operating system brings up the logon screen. SecureDoc’s “install-and-forget” preboot design simply replaces the Windows GINA with a SecureDoc log-on screen to not only provide real-time data protection that is completely transparent to the user, but also prevent intruders from bypassing the encryption level.

Designed for today’s dispersed business environment, the SecureDoc Enterprise Server integrates with Active Directory, LDAP, and PKI servers to let administrators install, encrypt, and configure user machines centrally, and enables secure, yet flexible creation and distribution of keys and key files, as well as assignment of access privileges to users. Administrators can customize password rules for the entire network, as well as recover lost passwords through a secure one-time challenge and response online engine. Most importantly, the unique design of the SecureDoc Enterprise Server Key file management eliminates all the vulnerabilities associated with the ‘Master Password’ concept so commonly used by other encryption software.

Built on the PKCS#11 standards, and featuring the AES 256-bit encryption algorithm, SecureDoc provides data recovery in the event of virus infection or hardware failure and encryption of all residual data, temporary files, paging files, and hidden partitions often left unprotected by other encryption solutions.
