Render Data Invisible to Malware, Unauthorized Users, and Alternate Operating Systems

Hidden Drives

Cigent secure drives create protected enclaves for sensitive data. It ensures that data remains encrypted and unreadable even after user logs onto the device, until step-up authentication is successfully provided.  Data within the drive partitions are inaccessible and unreadable to an adversary - even if they have compromised device protection.

  • Attackers cannot locate or see data even when the device is compromised
  • Hidden, encrypted partitions for the most sensitive content
  • Protected data cannot be cloned or wiped
