Conventional security methodologies based on software alone fail to effectively authenticate users and machines on the network or secure data on lost or stolen laptops, or ensure compliance with laws that require disclosure of lost personal data. Fortunately, SEDs and Microsoft BitLocker, provide more secure, cost-effective and simpler ways to safeguard your critical business information. However, these technologies provide only half the answer. ERAS transforms SEDs and BitLocker into enterprise-wide encryption and authentication solutions by adding essential centralized configuration and administration capabilities.
SEDs are the most secure, best performing and most transparent encryption option for protecting data on laptops. ERAS is the only management solution that delivers drive initialization, user management, drive locking, user recovery and crypto erase for all Opal-based, proprietary and solid-state SEDs.
Microsoft BitLocker's tight platform integration and use of the TPM makes it a good starting point for drive encryption for organizations using Windows 7. Wave ERAS provides a full set of capabilities to automate and secure the configuration and administration of Microsoft BitLocker. ERAS delivers a simple and intuitive administrative application for setting up, maintaining and reporting on BitLocker clients - eliminating the cost, complexity and uncertainty of designing your own solution through the use of "home-grown" scripts and directory modifications.
Manageability and control
ERAS provides a full set of capabilities to remotely search for, initialize, configure and administer a global fleet of computers with SEDs and those using Microsoft BitLocker drive encryption. Through native integration with Microsoft Active Directory, ERAS delivers the means to centrally provision security policies to end-points across the enterprise, limit access of encrypted information to authorized individuals and remotely manage user and device credentials. Most importantly, ERAS adds an authority of proof, allowing organizations to demonstrate that they were, and are, compliant with regulations in the wake of a security breach.
Centralized security managementProduct Highlights
Organizations, both large and small, understand that centralized security management is a critical component to protecting their networks and, by association, the critical information that drives their businesses. Wave's software provides the policy-based access controls, comprehensive reporting, directory services integration, centralized control and end-user access recovery that companies require to cost effectively implement and administer endpoint encryption and authentication. Most importantly, Wave software gives IT the assurance that data is protected in the event that a computer (or its hard drive) is lost or stolen.
