BestCrypt Volume Encryption – Enterprise Edition Now Easier and More Convenient Than Ever

HELSINKI, Finland – November 30, 2017 – To address the critical need to use encryption for GDPR compliance, Jetico, developer of world-class data protection software, announced today version 3 of BestCrypt Volume Encryption – Enterprise Edition. The updated central management component of Jetico’s disk encryption software, simplifies enterprise-wide GDPR compliance from anywhere - now using any device with a web-browser, including smartphones and tablets.

"This tough EU Data Protection Regulation does come with some exemptions," says Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman. "If customer data has been encrypted, then you no longer carry the responsibility to notify authorities and you are likely free from any fines or penalties. But many companies still resist using data encryption - falsely perceived as complicated and time consuming. BestCrypt has been designed for enterprises to deliver compliance with ease and in a matter of seconds – just select the target computers and enable the pre-set GDPR encryption policy. Jetico software will take care of the rest."

The new pre-set encryption policy for GDPR compliance can be remotely deployed by using a simple web browser. Admins also have the option to create and save customized encryption policies to best match their company standards.

For auditing purposes, version 3 of BestCrypt Volume Encryption – Enterprise Edition, including Jetico Central Manager, features centralized reporting and audit logs. Admins can now run and retrieve encryption reports, including:

  • Comprehensive information about active accounts
  • Status and number of licenses
  • Status and number of managed endpoints
  • Account activity logs 

"These features are especially handy in case of lost or stolen computers. The detailed reports and audit logs allow companies subject to GDPR to instantly prove the encrypted status of the device. The result? Peace of mind and zero downtime." Mr. Waksman clarifies.

Current users of Jetico's disk encryption software will be happy to hear that the latest release comes with additional improvements:

  • Redesigned user-friendly interface
  • Instant delivery of encryption settings and real-time monitoring
  • Support for multiple accounts and role-based access control (Administrator, Operator, Auditor)
  • Enhanced logging – including full list of changes and instantly view warnings/errors
  • Encrypted client-server communications over HTTPS 
  • Support for featured encryption algorithms – AES, RC6, Twofish, Serpent 
  • Support for server clustering with multiple nodes to distribute the workload between multiple servers and boost performance

CIOs and admins will appreciate the updated aesthetics and added convenience for managing all encryption activities. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) working with multiple companies will find even more features to celebrate in this release. More information can be found here.
