The TrustedDisk full-disk encryption solution encrypts not only the user data, but also the entire operating system and any temporary data. TrustedDisk uses a transparent real time encryption method that maintains the smooth running productivity of all working stations. If a user wants to start his computer, he has to identify himself before booting (pre-boot authentication). He does so by entering a hardware token and confirming the input with a PIN. This is the only way a user can access the computer.

TrustedDesktop is a secure virtualized desktop solution with practical information flow control. Its basic principle is strong isolation of critical applications and corporate workflows as well as reliable enforcement of security policies. Its innovative technology enables comprehensive and auditable lifecycle protection of all enterprise data. The overall system ensures that protected information is only processed by trustworthy components. Any data leakage due to malicious or accidental errors is effectively prevented.

Protecting data center and site-to-site connections against eavesdropping

 Big data applications and cloud technologies are driving the amount and the value of data in motion. Yet handling big data involves far-reaching challenges, primarily with respect to IT security. When connecting sites and data centers, confidential information leaves secured and trusted grounds. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity provides high-performance network encryptors that protect data center connections and wide area networks (WAN) against eavesdropping and manipulation.


R&S®SITLine ETH is a family of Ethernet encryptors. They protect organizations against espionage and the manipulation of data, transported via Ethernet over landline, radio relay and satellite links.

The devices combine easy administration (including separated network and security management) with a compact form factor and low system costs. They are BSI-approved for classified communications at German and NATO RESTRICTED security levels.

About Sophos

IT security products have become as complex as the networks they’re trying to secure. Sophos knows that the solution to complexity is not more complexity.  Sophos began producing antivirus and encryption products nearly 30 years ago. Today their products help secure the networks used by 100 million people in 150 countries and 100,000 businesses, including Pixar, Under Armour, Northrop Grumman, Xerox, Ford, Avis, and Toshiba. Sophos products allow you to secure every endpoint of your network, from laptops to virtual desktops and servers, to web and email traffic and mobile devices.

Sophos Safeguard



Proactive Data Protection with Synchronized Encryption. Sophos SafeGuard is data-centric, automatically securing content upon creation. Once encrypted, files remain secured when shared across platforms and devices, or if they are emailed or uploaded to cloud-based file sharing programs such as Box, Dropbox, or OneDrive. This method promotes secure collaboration everywhere, working across device and platforms without compromising security and preventing accidental data leakage.


Sophos Safeguard modules:

  • Full Disk Encryption
  • Centrally Manage BitLocker and FileVault 2
  • File/Folder Encryption
  • Encryption for File Shares
  • Encryption for Cloud
  • Removable Media Encryption
  • Synchronized Encryption (more about this feature below)
  • Management Console

Synchronized encryption concept

sophos security heartbeat




Sophos SafeGuard encrypts content as soon as it’s created. And with the encryption always on, you can enjoy seamless secure collaboration. Synchronized Encryption proactively protects your data by continuously validating the user, application, and security integrity of a device before allowing access to encrypted data. Also Saferguard works with Sophos Heartbeat
