Will D3E protect files stored in Microsoft One Drive folders in Windows 10?
Yes, D3E will protect all files stored in local folders.
Will D3E work with Self Encrypting Drives?
Yes, D3E supports any SED that is TCG Opal 2.0 compliant and has been pre-provisioned for D3E’s Locked and Protected partition.
How does D3E stop ransomware?
D3E prevents ransomware from encrypting files stored in Locked and Protected folders.
What is the difference between “Locked” and “Protected” folders in D3E?
Locked folders are always locked. They’re ideal for extremely sensitive files such as financial records that are only accessed on occasion. Protected folders hold files you access frequently, such as source code. They lock when D3E detects a threat.
Is D3E the same as encryption?
Encryption is a long-time standard, but it can be cumbersome to use and is only partially effective. It only protects data at rest. And if credentials or encryption keys are stolen, encryption is worthless.
Unlike encryption, D3E also protects live data and is threat aware. D3E monitors your system for signs of hacking activity. When the threat-level is elevated, D3E protects your sensitive files with a step up authentication, allowing you to contain the damage when all else fails.
How can I purchase D3E?
You can purchase D3E with a credit card from the cigent.com homepage for annual subscriptions of up to 25 users. For quantities above 25, please contact a reseller or Cigent directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are your plans to integrate D3E with security solutions other than Windows Defender?
Cigent is actively working with several leading Anti-Virus, EDR, Network, and SIEM security partners in order to integrate D3E with their threat detection and response solutions. We will post updates on these integrations on our partner page. Please send an email to email@example.com if you would like to be notified about an integration with a particular product.
How does D3E work in conjunction with Windows Defender?
If Windows Defender detects a threat or if it is disabled, D3E locks all files stored in “Protected Folders” and releases them when the threat is cleared.
Can I try D3E before I buy it?
Yes, we offer a 30 day trial subscription to all versions of D3E. A credit card is not required in order to download the 30 day trial.
Cigent Bare Metal
What happens if my Bare Metal SSD is lost or stolen?
Locked and Protected files will remain hardware encrypted until the Bare Metal SSD re-authenticates with the D3E Host.
How can I purchase a Cigent Bare Metal SSD?
You may purchase Cigent Bare Metal SSDs directly from Cigent’s website or from Cigent storage partners listed on the partner page.
Why is it important that Bare Metal SSDs be tethered to the endpoint agent?
Tethering provides an additional layer of security to D3E that automatically protects sensitive files if the D3E endpoint agent is disabled, the OS live booted, or the SSD is removed from the system.
How is a Cigent Bare Metal encryption different than Microsoft Bit Locker
Software based encryption, such as Microsoft Bit Locker, is cumbersome to use and can be easily bypassed if your system is compromised or your keys are stolen. D3E sets and stores the default master password in ssd firmware instead of software. By locking sensitive data in the firmware of the local ssd using AES 256 encryption, sensitive files are far more difficult to bypass, and provide added protection against ransomware, malware, hacker exploits, and lost / stolen devices.
Bare Metal SSDs are threat-aware and designed to work in conjunction with our Dynamic Data Protection solution for Windows 10, providing dynamic locking and unlocking of your protected files when your system is under duress.

What is the difference between Cigent D3E and Bare Metal?
Bare Metal adds a layer of firmware based protections to D3E that are almost impossible to bypass if the D3E endpoint is disabled, your system is live booted, or the SSD is lost or stolen. Cigent Bare Metal SSDs support the following features:
Locked Partitions: Files are always locked using hardware encryption and can only be accessed with a step-up authentication. When Locked Partitions are unlocked, files are still protected with a step up authentication.
Protected Partitions: Partitions are locked on-the-fly when D3E or one of the security solutions that D3E is integrated with, detects a threat. They are also locked and unlocked when the Windows device is power cycled.
Tethering: Select Bare Metal SSDs support a firmware based keep alive command that locks all protected folders if communications with the D3E Windows agent is disrupted, a popular hacking technique
Secure Erase Validation: D3E/Bare Metal validates that all blocks of the SSD have been erased completely when the device is recycled or at end of life
Do you offer volume discounts?
Yes, you can purchase D3E volume subscription packs in quantities of 25, 50, 100, 500, and 1,000. please contact your reseller or firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I upgrade D3E to D3E Premium when it is available?
Yes, you can upgrade from D3E to D3E Premium on a prorated basis.
