Data breaches are becoming increasingly common and can have serious consequences for both individuals and organizations. Recently, Coca-Cola reported a data breach that impacted 74,000 employees and individuals due to stolen laptops containing sensitive personal information. Such breaches underscore the need for robust data security measures to prevent them.

Prevent Data Breaches with Opal Lock’s Hardware-based Encryption Management

Opal Lock is a powerful security application that utilizes Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology to provide a software solution for managing hardware-based full-disk encryption. With Opal Lock, users can easily set a password to unlock encrypted drives and manage other features of their TCG SEDs. In addition, Opal Lock displays current status and detailed information about the drives on the system, providing users with complete visibility and control over their data.

By using Opal Lock, organizations can ensure that their data is secure and protected from unauthorized access. Opal Lock’s advanced data loss prevention (DLP) features would quarantine the information if it were attempted to be extracted via a USB or other means, physically redacting the sensitive data so the lost device would never freely make the sensitive content visible for unintentional use. With Opal Lock’s encryption and password protection, sensitive data stored on laptops or other devices will remain secure even if the device is lost or stolen.

Opal Lock comes in three versions to meet the needs of different users:

  •     The USB version supports all basic functionalities of Opal Lock for up to five USB-mounted Opal Drives
  •     The Standard version supports up to five Opal Drives, including internal drives, and includes setting up a pre-boot OS environment for unlocking drives when the boot drive is locked.
  •     The Premium version supports all functionalities of Opal Lock and allows users to manage multiple drives simultaneously with one click. It also enables the creation of a second password with limited authority and the automatic unlocking of drives in the pre-boot OS environment using passwords stored on USB.

In today’s digital age, it is crucial for organizations to take data security seriously. Opal Lock provides a powerful, easy-to-use solution for managing hardware-based full-disk encryption, ensuring that sensitive data is secure and protected from unauthorized access. By investing in Opal Lock, organizations can take proactive steps to prevent data breaches and protect their reputation, finances, and customers.
