The Benefits of Sophos Central Device Encryption


While disk encryption has long been a vital component of device security, it has sometimes meant complexity and admin overhead. CDE focuses on making disk encryption for Windows and macOS intuitive and hassle-free. There’s no server for the admin to setup, and just a single policy to enable. Even better, it uses the same core agent as Intercept X, meaning existing Sophos customers have no extra agent to install.


Endpoint protection and disk encryption go hand in hand. And, because it’s so easy to get up and running with encryption, CDE is a great accompaniment to Intercept X. Under the hood, we leverage Windows BitLocker and macOS FileVault technology to do the heavy lifting when it comes to encrypting and decrypting data on the disk. With these technologies being integrated deeply into each operating system, performance and security is first-class.
