Opinion & Resources



The solution complements Symantec Endpoint Protection. One of the growing risks with laptops and USB hard-drive is if they are stolen or lost and with them the loss of the information that is stored upon them. Symantec Endpoint Encryption encrypts both the hard-drive and the USB memory devices to ensure that should they be lost or stolen the local information is rendered as unintelligible and valueless.

It's worth noting that the risk of a lost laptop is not just the information loss. The laptop could be used to gleam user credential and remote access details that could lead to the whole network being attacked and compromised. If you are worried about the strength of your laptop security CST can test them and provide a full report on their strength to resist a hacking assault and data loss.
