DigiSAFE DeskCrypt is hardware-based encryption device that secures data in a SATA hard disk drive against hackers and information thieves. Uniquely designed as a bump-in-the-wire device used in desktops, DeskCrypt requires no mounting and simply plugs in between the SATA connector on the motherboard and the hard disk drive. It operates transparently and encrypts all data written onto the hard disk without any loss in disk performance.
DeskCrypt does not require any additional software drivers or applications to be installed and is operating
system independent. Once deployed, users would be assured that all the data on their hard disks is fully protected from unauthorized access in the event that the hard disk is lost or stolen.
DigiSAFE DeskCrypt contains a hardware-based cryptographic module that encrypts every single byte of data that is written into the hard disk in real-time without any loss in disk performance.
DigiSAFE DeskCrypt employs data encryption and pre-boot authentication to allow organizations to better protect and control access to their corporate and customer data, thus aiding compliance with regulations such as HIPAA, GLB Act, Sarbanes-Oxley Act, EU Data Protection Directive, FISMA and Japan’s Personal Information Protection Act.

DigiSAFE DeskCrypt authenticates the user every time the PC powers on or resumes from hibernation. The PC will only
boot into the Operating System on the attached hard disk drive upon successful user authentication. DeskCrypt offers two authentication modes:
In this mode of authentication, the user is prompted for a Password at the pre-boot stage after power-on. DeskCrypt grants access to the user if the correct password is presented.
In this mode, the user is prompted for DigiSAFE KeyCrypt® USB cryptographic token (something you have), as well as the password associated with the token (something you know). DeskCrypt grants access only if the correct token and password is presented.
