CREDANT Makes Deployment of Microsoft BitLocker More Secure and Compliant through Innovative Approach

This addition to the existing CREDANT Mobile Guardian (CMG) solution provides customers with the ability to centrally manage Microsoft BitLocker, extending the existing capabilities of the encryption solution by:

- Centralizing key management;
- Enhancing reporting and auditing;
- Maintaining Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) compliance by securing recovery keys;
- Automating Trusted Platform Module (TPM) initialization and management;
- Simplifying policy creation and enforcement through the management console;
- Providing faster, reliable encryption for removable media (such as USB flash drives); and,
- Integrating BitLocker Management with encryption management for Windows, Mac, removable media and smartphones.

These capabilities reduce the workload of managing Microsoft BitLocker, address some of the security concerns associated with the storage of the BitLocker recovery keys in active directory, and improve auditing and compliance reporting.

"Gartner clients know that data leakage can cost them money and their reputations, and eventually most companies will make MDP investments, whether they are small or large enterprises, or bound by compliance rules or not," reports John Gerard, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner. "They will make those purchases faster when the solutions are easy to understand and manage, easy to use, and priced affordably." (Gartner 2010 Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection)

CREDANT's solution addresses the security and compliance concerns, and does so in a way that can be integrated with other encryption management capabilities for different versions of Microsoft Windows and non-Windows platforms such as Mac OS X and removable media. CREDANT customers will now have the option to safely and securely deploy Microsoft BitLocker-which is a standard component on Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise editions-as part of their data security infrastructure, without the management or security challenges that were previously areas of concern.

"CREDANT customers have told us they need a more robust, comprehensive approach to manage BitLocker and meet their data protection requirements in an integrated manner," said Chris Burchett, chief technology officer and co-founder, CREDANT Technologies. "This release, including the CREDANT Manager for BitLocker, helps address security concerns with the minimum impact to end-users, the least workload for IT and security administrators, and the most integrated, secure management capabilities on the market today."

CREDANT Enterprise Server 7.1.1, including the CREDANT Manager for BitLocker, will be available in May 2011. For more information, go to http://www.credant.com/products/bitlocker.html.
