What is Full Drive Encryption (FDE)?

Full Drive Encryption (FDE) is a security process that automatically converts the data on a hard drive into a form that cannot be understood by anyone who does not have the key to "undo" the conversion. This includes all the data, programs, and operating systems. Without the proper authentication key, even if the hard disk is stolen or compromised, the data remains inaccessible and secure.

How does Cigent’s Full Drive Encryption enhance data security?

Cigent’s Full Drive Encryption utilizes advanced encryption algorithms to protect all data stored on the disk. Our FDE solution is uniquely designed to integrate seamlessly with existing security systems, providing an additional layer of security that ensures data is protected from unauthorized access, even if your system is compromised or stolen. It offers robust pre-boot authentication, which requires users to verify their identity before the system boots up.

What types of authentication methods can be used with Cigent’s Full Drive Encryption?

Cigent’s Full Drive Encryption supports multiple forms of authentication methods to meet various security needs and preferences. These include traditional password entry, biometric verification such as fingerprint scanning, and security tokens or smart cards. Users can choose one or combine several methods for enhanced security through multi-factor authentication.

Can Full Drive Encryption affect the performance of my device?

The impact of Full Drive Encryption on system performance is minimal. Cigent’s FDE solutions are designed to operate efficiently in the background with little to no perceptible effect on the speed or responsiveness of your device. Encryption occurs in real-time and decryption happens seamlessly as you access your files, ensuring secure yet fluid access to your data.

What happens if I forget my password or lose my authentication token for Full Drive Encryption?

Losing access to your authentication method can be problematic, but Cigent provides a robust recovery process to regain access to your encrypted drive. This process typically involves multiple identity verification steps to ensure the security of your data. We recommend setting up a recovery mechanism, such as backup authentication credentials or recovery keys, which should be stored securely and separate from your device.
