Symantec Endpoint Encryption

Man with a laptop on his lap sitting in an airport terminal waiting areaIn the last issue of Secure IT! we announced the purchase and testing of full disk encryption software at Brown.  In the interim,  though the encryption product “Guardian Edge” was acquired then renamed by Symantec, CIS’s relationship with the vendor continued and the software, now called Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE), is in the final phases of preparation for release.

The gradual roll-out begins later this month when CIS and departmental IT support staff will begin installing SEE on the faculty and staff laptops identified as good candidates for the software. An FAQ for SEE has been developed, which includes information about who should be using it and steps to obtain it if appropriate.
