RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Lenovo today announced the Lenovo Hardware Password Manager, the latest advancement for businesses to manage data security and the only universal tool to work with all brands of hard drives with full disk encryption (FDE). This new tool allows IT administrators to remotely manage employee hard drive passwords, including drives that are self-encrypting, on many Lenovo Think-branded laptops and desktops. Remote management helps make adoption of FDE hard drives a more viable option for many companies now that IT administrators can easily centrally control and reset hard drive passwords. Hardware Password Manager not only helps companies increase their overall level of data security but also helps them reduce the time and expense associated with resetting employee passwords.

"Encrypting drives offer state of the art protection for PC data, but companies everywhere previously had difficulty managing them," said Peter Schrady, vice president and general manager, Enterprise, Software and Peripherals, Lenovo. "Lenovo's new Hardware Password Manager product provides an easy tool to reset passwords by remote control, including full-encryption drives. This is the world's only solution to centrally manage all available brands of fully encrypting drives. The fact that it can also utilize our fingerprint reader to access encrypted drives makes it even better."
