How does D3E work in conjunction with antivirus and EDR solutions?
If a supported antivirus or EDR solution detects a threat or if the endpoint agent is disabled, D3E locks all Dynamically Locked files, folders, and disk partitions and releases them when the threat is cleared. The user can always access a locked file with a step up authentication.
What third party security solutions are integrated with D3E?
D3E is currently integrated with Windows 10 Security, PC Matic, Sophos Intercept X, VMware Carbon black, & Cyberark EPM. Please check out Partner Page under Technology Partners for updates.
What is the difference between Always Locked and Dynamically Locked files, folders, and disk partitions in D3E?
Always Locked files, folders, and disk partitions are always protected with a step up authentication. Dynamically Locked files, folders, and disk partitions lock when D3E detects a threat.
Will D3E protect files stored in Microsoft One Drive folders in Windows 10?
Yes, D3E will protect all files stored in local folders and will allow OneDrive and Dropbox to synchronize with local folders without requiring an authentication.
Will D3E work with all Self Encrypting Drives?
Yes,D3E will detect the availability of any internal or external SED that is TCG Opal 2.0 compliant and allow the user to dynamically create disk partitions from available disk space. Please note that some external USB enclosures are not supported due to firmware level update and compatibility issues. For a complete list of D3E certified external USB SEDs and/or supported enclosures, please click here.
How does D3E stop ransomware?
D3E prevents ransomware from encrypting any files, folders, or disk partitions that are Always Locked by D3E with a step up authentication. D3E also includes threat sensors that can detect a ransomware attack and Dynamically Lock access to files, folders, and disk partitions during a ransomware attack.
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. Full disk encryption only protects data at rest. Once the user logs in, or if user credentials are compromised, all of the unencrypted files are vulnerable. If encryption keys are stolen, encryption is of no value.
D3E protects any file, live or encrypted, and is effective even if the system is under duress or user passwords are stolen. D3E is also threat aware and monitors your system for signs of hacking activity. When the threat-level is elevated, D3E protects dynamically locked files, folders, and disk partitions with a step up authentication, allowing you to contain the damage when all else fails.

We will post updates on these integrations on our partner page. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Cigent for Networks
My company has remote employees. Do they require a C4N license?
If they access the company network, they will require a C4N licence.
How is the annual C4N SaaS license price determined?
The annual SaaS license is determined by the number of employees in your organization with a maximum of 5 devices per employee.
What devices are monitored by C4N?
C4N monitors all devices connected to the network, including endpoints, servers, mobile phones, networking, imaging, and IoT devices.
Where does the device sit on my network?
The CyberThreat sensor sits between your router and internal network segments.
What's the difference between the CyberThreat Assessment and C4N?
The CyberThreat Assessment is an automated 10 day trial used to evaluate the health of your network which results in a report. During the assessment, the cyberthreat sensor is in data collection mode only and will not block any perceived threats.
Does C4N block all threats?
No, but C4N can detect and block threats that other tools can easily miss.
Will C4N make my network run slower?
No, the C4N threat sensor only analyzes meta data and has zero impact on network performance.
I already have other expensive cybersecurity solutions in place, why do I need C4N?
Cybersecurity is best delivered in layers. C4N adds a critical layer of managed network detection and response that can be used to thwart modern day cyber attacks that have bypassed other security layers.
I have firewall and antivirus solutions. How does C4N work my other cybersecurity solutions?
A firewall blocks external threats. Antivirus software detects threats on the device that it manages, and only threats that can be detected based on file signatures. C4N will holistically detect and block threats that have bypassed a firewall or compromised an endpoint device in the network, including devices on the network that don't support antivirus software at all, such as security cameras, routers, printers, and IoT Devices.
Does C4N stop ransomware?
Yes, C4N is effective at detecting and blocking ransomware that has infected an endpoint in your network and is beaconing out in order to launch an attack.

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
