Boardgent BitLocker Hard Drive Encryption:
It is a robust solution for managing Bitlocker across all IT assets that makes IT security projects easy and fast.
Boardgent allows you to efficiently manage the keys configured in the computers. Let's go into detail!
What is BitLocker?
A technology built into the Windows operating system to prevent the exposure of confidential information stored on lost or stolen computers. Encrypt hard drives to protect information.
Why is it important?
The OSI (Office of Internet Security) states that having Bitlocker activated allows you to keep everything from documents to passwords safe since it encrypts the entire drive on which Windows and your data reside. Once BitLocker is turned on, all files stored on the drive are automatically encrypted.
For companies, it is very important to configure disk encryption for all their IT assets, both on their computers and external storage devices.
Hard drive encryption with BitLocker has been improving over time and is enabled in Windows since Vista and integrated with Active Directory and Azure Active Directory.
Protect your computers and information in case of loss theft
Data on a lost or stolen computer is vulnerable to unauthorized access, either by running a software attack tool against it or by transferring the computer's hard drive to another computer. BitLocker helps mitigate unauthorized data access by enhancing system and file protections.
Windows provides us with BitLocker Drive Encryption which includes the command line tools manage-bde and repair-bde, and the BitLocker cmdlets for Windows PowerShell manually, meaning the technician goes from drive to drive adjusting the encryption as needed. This means that the execution of projects takes more time and costs are increased. Source: Windows Bitlocker 2021
How do we help you fight this problem?
We have created a solution to help companies overcome this problem.
Traditionally, IT teams have to go through manual, face-to-face processes to encrypt hard drives with BitLocker.
Boardgent has automated these processes, allowing IT departments to do it remotely and in bulk on all their computers with a single click.
Boardgent encrypts hard drives with BitLocker using automatic keys of your desired length and complexity, which change as often as you like, be it every couple of hours, every day, or every week. This allows companies to always have control over their equipment because if someone external has access to the current password, it will become invalid after a certain time, thus avoiding possible attacks.
In addition, when a person on your team needs one of the passwords, they must enter the platform with a double authentication factor and then write the reason why they need to access that system. Therefore, this tool not only allows companies to ensure that the BitLocker password of their computers will constantly change but also to have audit logs at their disposal to record the users who entered each system and at what time. Allowing to easily identify unauthorized access and those responsible for information leaks.
Companies of all sizes have had to pay an average of $200,000 USD when they have been the target of a cyber attack.
At Boardgent we believe that this can be avoided, all companies need high-security standards, especially with the new working methods.
