Does SafeGuard Enterprise work on Netbooks?
Known to apply to the following Sophos product(s) and version(s)
SafeGuard Device Encryption
All supported operating systems
What To Do
Generally SafeGuard Enterprise can be installed on Netbooks, as long as these Netbooks and their installed operating systems meet the minimum standards of supported operating systems and free memory as described in the user manual of the respective SafeGuard product.
Solid State Disks typically behave in the same way as "conventional" hard disks and therefore pose no special issue for SafeGuard encryption. To date no Netbook related problems have been seen. However, hardware or BIOS related issues can never be 100% discounted due to the many different models that exist.
If in doubt about a specific model or project, please check whether it supports the minimum OS requirements first and then test in a pilot before doing a full roll-out.
