Disk Encryption

Increased remote working makes it more important than ever to secure computers and the data on them. With the huge number of laptops lost, stolen, or misplaced every day, a crucial first line of defense against the loss or theft of devices is full disk encryption. Sophos Central Device Encryption leverages Windows BitLocker and macOS FileVault to secure devices and data.


Part of the Sophos Central unified security console, Central Device Encryption is managed right alongside our entire range of market-leading protections. The web-based console means there’s no server to deploy and no need to configure back-end key servers. Central Device Encryption uses the same core agent as Intercept X, meaning existing Sophos customers have no additional agent to deploy and can start encrypting computers in minutes.

And in the case of lost or stolen laptops, they must provide proof these missing devices are encrypted.
