DISK Protect by BeCrypt is a full disk encryption product for Windows-based operating systems. DISK Protect encrypts all data on a computer hard drive, including user data, the TOE executables when the TOE is not loaded and the operating system files when the operating system is not booted up.
The product also includes a bootloader component. The bootloader enforces the requirement of successful user authentication having to be completed before access is granted to the disk encryption key. Without the disk encryption key, on-the-fly encryption and decryption of the hard disk cannot commence. Consequently, the operating system and TOE files can not be decrypted and neither the bootup of the operating system nor the loading of the TOE can commence.
