When you are on the go your business critical hardware is more at risk for theft and loss, and once your notebook or iPAQ is out of your control, sensitive company and personal data is vulnerable to thieves or even the curious. HP has developed an end-to-end capability beginning with HP ProtectTools, a family of security products and features built-in, not bolted-on, to give you safer ways to stay in control and secure your data while you're on the go so you can reduce the technical and financial risks to your business. Beyond protecting the data on the device, HP's partnership with CREDANT Technologies brings centralized policy definition and creation for security manageability.
HP ProtectTools for notebook PCs
The foundation for HP ProtectTools for notebook PCs begins with the HP ProtectTools Security Manager, an extensible console you can download free from the HP site for older HP notebooks and that will be factory-installed on next generation HP notebooks. The ProtectTools Security Manager gives you a single point of control over all elements of security for your notebook.
HP has developed four modules to work with HP ProtectTools Security Manager to allow you to customize your security.
• BIOS configuration for HP ProtectTools gives you control over your computer's BIOS settings and can prevent anyone who doesn't know your BIOS password from booting your system. This feature is only available on notebook PCs.
• Credential Manager for HP ProtectTools supports multifactor Windows Authentication and single sign-on so you can have strong authentication that is simple to use.
• Smart Card security for HP ProtectTools allows you to easily add Smart Card security to your notebook by managing the card initialization, security settings, and integration with the BIOS.
• Embedded Security for HP ProtectTools allows you to configure and manage your notebook's built-in Trusted Computing Module security chip.
Select HP notebooks come with the BIOS configuration and Credential Manager modules already installed, and you may download others free from HP if your notebook hardware supports them. Review your product information or work with your local HP product expert for more details on which HP ProtectTools modules your notebook supports.
