Each year, millions of laptop computers are misplaced, stolen, or lost; many of them containing important and sensitive data. Full disk encryption is the essential first line of defence to protect your data in any of these events. Most businesses are using laptops to enable their staff to work from anywhere, this means the data on those devices needs to be protected in case of loss or theft. An effective way of doing this is by encrypting the laptop’s internal disk, you may lose the asset but your data will be protected.
Technology that encrypts the hard disk on your computer, this is transparent to the computer user as it encrypts/decrypts on-the-fly as files are required. There is a performance hit as the computer has to encrypt/decrypt in real-time but with modern laptops, this impact is generally not noticeable. Why do you need this? If your laptop is lost of stolen, hopefully you have it insured but what about the data? Without Full Disk Encryption any data on the machine is at risk of compromise and is easily accessible. With Full Disk Encryption, the criminal will have your hardware asset but not your data.
