Full Disk Encryption (FDE) is the safest way to protect digital assets, including both those of company as well as customers. If mobile devices such as laptops are stolen, FDE protects the information stored on them while also protecting a corporation's most valued asset: its intellectual property. By encrypting the entire hard drive, data is completely protected without requiring any user interaction, thereby increasing productivity and eliminating user error. Recent advances in FDE have enabled the use of hardware-based encryption, eliminating the need to use valuable CPU time for encryption, increasing performance, and maximizing security.
