Why don't you have a look at Fox IT Control

The part of the software dedicated to workstation control allows you to

encrypt part of the file systems using a group or a personal encryption

key so that you can have different roles with different keys
(accounting people, technicians, help desk etc..) and a user-personal
encrypted folders at the same time. With group encryption keys only
members of the specific group can have access to the docs in the
encrypted folders, and that's good I think (e.g. tech people don't need

to know your ridicolous salary ;) ). You can even have encrypted share
folders (e.g. on a file server) and all docs are encrypted/decrypted
on-fly on the end point (so they "travel" encrypted on you LAN).You can

manage all the groups/keys quite easily from a centralized server and
you don't need to be a high-encryption-skilled guy actually.

I installed it few times on customers site when the software was
RSA-then-TFS branded and the finally bought it.

Hope this helps

Hello all,

I need to implement hard disk encryption in my enterprise and hence
have been evaluating safegaurd Easy 4.31 and safeboot.

I have tested various facets (Encryption, management, installation,
data recovery, etc) of both the tools and both appear to be equally

Since i do not have much knowledge of hard disk encryption, i wanted to

know which tool is more effective and easy to manage.Or infact any
other good hard disk encryption tool in your knowledge. I want to
implement the tool in client server architecture for easy management.

would appreciate some comments.
