Phoenix FailSafe remotely protect laptops with Fujitsu Mobile Disk Drives

Phoenix Technologies Ltd. today announced it is working with Fujitsu Limited to enable remote disk control and disk data protection for mobile computing environments equipped with Fujitsu’s new full disk encryption (FDE) 2.5″ 7,200RPM SATA hard disk drive. With Phoenix FailSafe, the laptop or notebook owner can remotely disable the Fujitsu FDE drive in the laptop, thus ensuring “failsafe” protection against data theft and personal information loss. The Fujitsu MHZ2 CJ series is the first HDD in the world to support the hardware-based AES-256 bit encryption standard, enabling the HDD to provide the strongest data protection from unauthorized access by setting a password.

Phoenix FailSafe not only enables laptop owners to remotely protect and encrypt vital content stored on their laptops’ hard drives, it also provides the ability to locate/recover missing laptops and lost data as well as remotely ‘kill’ sensitive data or the device to avoid potential misuse.
