Overview of Service
Drexel provides Sophos SafeGuard Enterprise, a disk encryption tool that prevents a computer's content from being viewed if it is lost or stolen, protecting personal and University records.
Sophos and IT recommend that encrypted computers subscribe to a secure file backup service such as CrashPlan Pro Enterprise.
To ensure that data is kept safe and secure, the process of encrypting a computer involves several steps. This page outlines the major steps so that you can know what to expect when you are contacted by the IT professional to begin the process.

Full disk encryption goes hand-in-hand with a secure backup service, such as CrashPlan Pro E. Should the hard drive fail, or should it get lost or stolen, a data backup might become your only option for recovering your data.
All Drexel-owned computers and devices must be encrypted, per the Data Security Initiative.
