Comprehensive disk encryption
Protection of confidential data, intellectual property, personal identification information and personal health information on laptops, workstations and removable media from loss or theft is a crucial challenge for companies and public institutions. Disclosure of confidential data may result in loss of intellectual property, fine and
legal consequences, and can negatively affect company and brand reputation. Symantec™ PGP™ Whole Disk Encryption software provides companies with a comprehensive, multi-platform, efficient encryption system for any data (user files, exchange files, system and hidden files, and others) on workstation, laptop and server disks. The encrypted data is protected from unauthorised access, which enables effective protection of intellectual property,
client and partner data, and brands.

Symantec™ PGP Universal™ Server Managing multiple encryption applications using a single console
The Symantec™ PGP Universal Server™ software provides organisations with a single console managing multiple encryption applications of the Symantec™ encryption platform.
IT departments can manage users, automate administrative tasks and introduce rules related to protecting important data, avoiding financial losses, legal consequences and reputation damage resulting from information disclosure. Benefits
Streamlined user management – adding user accounts and assigning safety rules without input from the administrator. Enforcing security rules – data protection and administrative task automation thanks to the centrally managed policy. Faster installation – utilisation of the same infrastructure to ensure greater protection range. Reduction of costs and complexity – overseeing operations from a single, unified console.
Centralised administration enabling company data protection. The basis of the comprehensive data protection strategy is a multi-aspect protection plan. Some companies begin such actions from encrypting disks in order to solve short-term problems with compatibility, adding e-mail and file protection functions in time. Far-sighted IT department managers realise that implementing solutions based on multiple defence points can lead to difficulties during management. With time, the complexity and number of administrative tasks continue to grow. The Symantec™ PGP Universal Server™ software provides organisations with a single console managing multiple encryption applications of the Symantec™ encryption platform. IT departments can manage users, automate administrative tasks and introduce rules related to protecting important data, avoiding financial losses, legal consequences and reputation damage resulting from information disclosure.
The Universal Server software provides the following
benefits:
• Central administration – manage multiple
Symantec encryption applications using
a single console.
• Enforcement of rules — central policy
enables you to automate administrative tasks and effectively
utilise protection mechanisms.
• Reports and logs – full insight into the current status
data protection facilitates monitoring the environment.
• Key management – create, distribute and
store encryption keys, and provide
the company with data recovery capabilities.
Compliance with future needs
Thanks to the Universal Server software, an organisation can
implement a single application meeting its current requirements, and
subsequently add further products as needed.

PGP™ Desktop Email firmy Symantec™

PGP_Desktop_email

E-mail encryption in workstations and laptops.
Secure confidential information in e-mails using a workstation-based centrally managed solution. E-mail has become the most important business communication system, as it enables companies
to communicate with clients and partners effectively. Unfortunately, e-mails are sent across the Internet as plain text, which constitutes a serious hazard for crucial assets:
client and financial data, trade secrets and other restricted information. Disclosing such information can lead to financial losses or legal consequences, and
negatively affect brand reputation. Symantec™ PGP™ Desktop Email provides companies with an automatic, user-invisible encryption solution that enables securing internal and external confidential e-mail messages. Organisations can reduce the risk of data integrity breach and meet their partners’ requirements, and ensure compliance with information security
and confidentiality regulations.
Benefits
• Easy, automatic operation – confidential
e-mail and attachment protection with minimum changes to computer operation.
• Security rules enforcement – automatic,
consistent application of centrally managed data security rules.
• Faster deployment – automated installation and configuration process.
• Operating cost reduction – full
automation and central management of
e-mail encryption, users,
keys and configurations using
Symantec™ PGP Universal™ Server software.
Advanced, comprehensive e-mail encryption
Desktop Email software provides all encryption functions
necessary to protect company e-mail
within one, easy to operate and simple to manage
solution. Enables organisations to automatically
secure electronic communication – from the
sender’s mail client to the recipient’s software and
during all stages in-between – using centrally
defined, rule-based encryption mechanism.
The Desktop Email supports
all major e-mail protection standards and
perfectly cooperates with most popular
e-mail protection systems utilised by recipients.
If the recipient does not have a mail client that supports
encryption, the sender can encrypt documents as
Symantec™ PGP™ Self-Decrypting Archive packets
and subsequently send the protected files as regular
e-mail attachments. Organisations can also add
Symantec™ PGP Universal™ Gateway Email in order to
support e-mail through the WWW and encrypt
PDF documents.
Security rules enforcement
Security policy can be based on
senders, recipients, recipient domain, keywords or
content, and confidential messages can be automatically secured
without and changes in the user’s manner of work.
Rule definitions can be set and configured
using the Universal Server software.
• Offline rule control – enforcing
policies for unconnected users by
controlling the mail when the Universal
Server software is unavailable for the Desktop
Email solution client.
• Client control – restricting access to functions
such as optional manual encryption and
signing buttons, and sharing them with users and
enforcing related rules.
• Advanced authentication options –
dual-component authentication mechanism using
smart cards.
Easy, automatic operation
Once it is installed, Desktop Email works
invisible to users who can
continue their work uninterrupted. The software automatically protects
messages in the background, so that users do not forget to
secure their mail and attachments.
• Automatic e-mail protection –
the solution encrypts, decrypts, digitally signs and
verifies messages in accordance with individual or
centrally managed rules.
• Safe delivery of e-mails without using
clients – if installed together with
the Gateway Email software, messages are
safely delivered to external users
who do not use e-mail encryption systems.
• Multiple methods of data protection – protect confidential
information that you send, using PGP programs
Management using Universal Server software
The Desktop Email solution can be installed and operated
in a centralised manner using the
Universal Server software which enables organisations to easily
set and enforce data protection rules in
the company
