I've not looked at utimaco. I've been evaluating PC Guardian
http://www.pcguardian.com/ to deploy within our enterprise. It has performed
better than other we have tested.

Subject: [Full-disclosure] harddisk encryption


hi,

sorry for my late answer and for breaking the thread. below you can find
the
original post:

<>
i'm evaluating a software that performs harddisk encryption for deploying
in
my company. the software in question is utimaco safeguard easy v4.10
(www.utimaco.com) running on w2k.

i am interested in communitty's oppinion about this product. has anyone
performed a detailed analysis of it? i googled around but i couldn't find
much information, except that the version 3.20 sr1 has earned an eal3
certification from the german federal agency for it security.

thank you for all your answers and suggestions on and off the list.

what i like at safeguard easy are the possibility to encrypt full
harddisks,
not only files or partitions, and the boot authentication. Frank Knobbe
suggested encryption plus hard disk from pc guardian - I asked for an
evaluation copy. google suggested also drive crypt plus pack -
www.securstar.com.

imho, the main disadvantage of pgpdisk and alike compared with
full-encryption tools is that valuable data can remain unencrypted in the
swap file or in temporary files outside the container. When using full
harddisk encryption tools no extra user interaction is required,
everything
is done transparently. there is no need for user training.
