UTIMACO Safeware A/G SafeGuard Easy - provides total company-wide protection for sensitive information on laptops and workstations. Boot protection, pre-boot user authentication and hard disk encryption using powerful algorithms guarantee against unauthorized access and hacker attacks. SafeGuard Easy is both simple to install and operates transparently in the background. Unauthorized persons are prohibited from accessing the system because pre-boot authentication (PBA) requires the authentication of the user before the operating system is started. PBA cannot be manipulated and therefore guarantees maximum security.
Many other protection programs are ineffective because they permit the readout of the keys or passwords from the hard disk. SafeGuard Easy prevents this by generating the code key required for boot-up from the typed password. Even hard disk analysis tools become ineffective against SafeGuard Easy.
Unlike other solutions which encode only selected files or directories, SafeGuard Easy encodes the entire content of the hard disk. This means that all the information on the hard disk is protected - regardless of where the data is stored.
Utimaco Safeware uses powerful algorithms and encryption methods to ensure that operating processes are executed efficiently and without delays.
SafeGuard Easy provides boot virus protection to resist boot sector viruses - hazardous sabotage tools that operate by interfering with the Master Boot Record and allowing hackers to gain control over the PC.
SafeGuard Easy lives up to its name within all organizations regardless of their size. The software can be installed conveniently throughout the company using configuration files without user intervention. SafeGuard Easy also allows user-specific privileges to be defined (e.g. disabling disk encryption).

Integrated boot manager (TWIN-BOOT) - Today, it is a frequent requirement that a laptop is hard disk is split into a private, unprotected partition, managed by the user, and an encrypted partition that is managed by the user is company. SafeGuard Easy now provides an integrated boot manager for this purpose, with which configurations of this kind, or similar ones, can be implemented easily and securely, from one central point. In this way the company data remains protected and the user has absolute freedom on their private partition, even when it comes to choosing the operating system.
Removable media encryption now also covers USB memory media - The range of removable media supported by SafeGuard Easy has now been extended to include the current generation of Plug and Play memory cards (USB memory sticks), so they can also be used for secure data exchange.
In addition, it is now possible to temporarily switch encryption for an individual floppy drive or removable media disk drive on or off, separately from the others.
