The Sophos SafeGuard line of products includes a full disk encryption product for various desktop/laptop and server operating system (OS) hard drives. Full disk encryption (FDE), as the name implies, encrypts an entire hard drive. When the desktop, laptop or server is not booted, its contents -- including its operating system, applications and user data -- cannot be accessed by unauthorized users. This prevents attackers from tampering with the OS or applications and from acquiring sensitive data stored on the hard drive.

The new SafeGuard Disk Encryption Advanced subscription license provides users with a convenient licensing solution for full disk encryption. Combining the two SafeGuard modules SafeGuard Device Encryption and SafeGuard Native Device Encryption makes this the ideal subscription offering when customers for example use a mix of operating systems or are migrating from legacy versions of Windows to Windows 7 or 8/8.1. For added convenience, SafeGuard Disk Encryption Advanced is licensed per user instead of per device.

Encryption is completely transparent and it integrates in the Management Center alongside all other devices.
