Jetico Disk Encryption Delivers Industry's Best UEFI Compatibility
HELSINKI --(Business Wire)--
To expand use of disk
encryption for UEFI, Jetico has announced a convenient update to
their acclaimed disk
encryption software. The world's first native encryption software
for disk volumes, BestCrypt Volume
Encryption is now fully compatible with the latest UEFI-based
computers from all known major brands.
Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) has revolutionized the way
computers boot. UEFI support has been implemented in many different ways
by motherboard and laptop vendors. Diversity in UEFI platforms has
affected the ability of disk encryption to work consistently on various
Jetico CEO Michael Waksman explains, "We developed this new version
after analyzing many reported issues with UEFI support. Unlike
alternative disk encryption tools that fall short in secure booting,
BestCrypt Volume Encryption now provides the industry's best
compatibility with UEFI systems."
Waksman continues, "We've noticed that bigger, more widely-known
encryption vendors are struggling with supporting UEFI. Free open-source
tools have not yet addressed this issue at all. This release helps
separate Jetico from the pack, while also aligned with our missio to be
the most agile developer of data protection software."
In addition to improved support for UEFI-based computers, BestCrypt
Volume Encryption version 3.62.11 continues to feature:
Pre-boot authentication - including customization of all text
displayed on screen at required password entry
Support for Windows 8
Support for GUID Partition Table (GPT)
Support for Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for unattended reboot
Two-factor authentication with removable disk drives
Trusted encryption algorithms (AES Rijndael, Serpent, Twofish) with
the largest possible key size in advanced security XTS encryption mode
Powerful yet easy to use, BestCrypt Volume Encryption is engineered for
a wide range of users - from experts at large organizations to people at

software provides peace of mind and compliance to anyone concerned

encryption software 8 years ago, BestCrypt Volume Encryption has
reliably delivered a user friendly solution for transparent encryption
of data kept on both fixed and removable storage devices - from older
MS-DOS styled volumes through to modern Spanned, Striped, Mirrored or
