Introducing Cigent D3E for Windows 10

Protect the data you care most about with threat-aware access control.

The Cigent Dynamic Data Defense Engine (D3E) revolutionizes data security by protecting all of your sensitive files, whether encrypted or not, with a step up authentication. For Windows 10 systems with self-encrypting SSDs, D3E delivers the ultimate in data protection—a layer of hardware encryption that cannot be bypassed.

Prevent the exfiltration of sensitive data via:

  • Ransomware

  • Hacker Exploits

  • Fileless Malware

  • Phishing

  • Insider Threats

  • Lost or Stolen Devices

Simple to use. Powerfully effective.

Active Lock

With its effective, easy-to-use approach, Active Lock integrates with your Windows file system and secures your most important and sensitive files. Locked folders prevent unauthorized access to your files at all times. Protected folders are locked on-the-fly when D3E detects a potential threat.

Multifactor Authentication

With D3E two-factor authentication, Locked files can be accessed only with a step-up authentication. All authentication methods—such as Windows Hello fingerprint, Google Authenticator code, PIN, or other third-party authentication solutions—are delivered through a single, unified interface.

Hardware Encryption

If your Windows system includes a self-encrypting drive, D3E automatically detects it, and allows you to set up a layer of threat-aware hardware encryption that cannot be bypassed. Note: A TCG Opal 2.0-compliant internal or external SSD is required.

Untrusted Network Detection and Device Blocking

When a new network or public Wi-Fi connection is made, D3E locks files stored in Protected Folders and blocks lateral communications with other devices until the user trusts the network with a step-up authentication.


Network and File System deception engines provide virtually zero false-positive indications of hacking activity. When deception events are detected—such as an attempt to access user-configured file honeypots or lateral communication of rogue devices on a trusted network—D3E instantly blocks access to your system and locks all files stored in Protected folders.


Files in Protected folders are automatically locked and unlocked based on Windows Defender Security status. When a threat is detected by next-gen AV, EDR, and network security solutions, D3E ensures sensitive files—used by individuals or groups of users—are locked and remain locked, until the threat has been cleared.

Ransomware Detection

AI-based machine learning sensors are deployed to monitor data access patterns and detect ransomware attacks—in real time. If you’re attacked, D3E prevents ransomware from encrypting files in Locked and Protected Folders.

Continuous Authentication of the User

D3E relies on machine learning sensors to continuously authenticate a user’s identity. Keyboard typing cadence and network usage patterns are monitored for signs of compromise. If abnormalities are detected, files in Protected folders are locked and unlocked automatically, based on AI-determined threat levels.


The Security Dashboard and System Tray enable end users to set up Locked and Protected folders, create data deception files, and configure second-factor authentication methods. The enterprise-grade D3E Console provides flexible, centralized deployment, configuration, and response management.

With D3E, your files remain yours.
