Smart Encryption Management
One of the most complex and tedious tasks related to IT-security is the vast administration with many manual processes. With Hiddn Security’s unique key management system (KMS) one can from a single and centralized user interface safeguard data on all laptops in the organization with user-friendly encryption.
- IT-administrator/Security officer can through the centralized interface:
- Create, manage, and retire encryption keys and communication key set
- Create and manage the encryption keys’ attributes
- Key escrow Management of roles and services
- Manage passphrase attributes
Easy administration of mobile work
The best security is always the one that makes IT-services easy to use, and simple to maintain. We have created a management system that allows the mobile workforce to get all benefits of flexibility without management having to be concerned about protection of sensitive data and information. It is easy to implement Hiddn technology, and we offer detailed instructions on how to install and configure units prior to end-user operation. This includes the strict procedures for converting unprotected data to become protected. The KMS is installed and delivered on a dedicated computer along with a Smart-card reader/writer.
For security reasons, it is always recommended to install a Hiddn KMS on a Hiddn Laptop1+ disk and store the Hiddn KMS in a physically secured room. Designated crypto-officer person should be the only persons authorized to use the Hiddn KMS.
Issues Related to Upgrade of Existing PCs
Upgrading a laptop PC in use will require a change of hard disk from the original 2.5” hard drive to the hard drive mounted on the Hiddn Laptop1+ unit. This replacement will leave the customer with an added security since the original 2.5” that can be used as a master for producing the encrypted (new) disk – Hiddn Laptop1+. After completion of the data transfer the customer can either store the original disk as an extra precaution, or ensure that it is handled in the most secure and environmentally friendly manner. We offer specialized partners in each market to assist with erasing and disposal.
