PGP Whole Disk Encryption
Note: Many schools and units have standardized on the use of specific applications and operating systems. Faculty and staff should speak to their local support provider to determine which products are supported locally before selecting or purchasing software.
PGP® Whole Disk Encryption (WDE) provides comprehensive disk encryption, enabling protection for data on desktops, notebooks, and removable media. The encrypted data is continuously safeguarded from unauthorized access, providing strong security for intellectual property and confidential data.
The recommended implementation of PGP WDE at Penn requires connecting your computer to a PGP Universal Server. Please work with your local support provider to obtain the software and assistance necessary to access the appropriate PGP server for your school or center.
