A Definition of Data Encryption

Data encryption translates data into another form, or code, so that only people with access to a secret key (formally called a decryption key) or password can read it. Encrypted data is commonly referred to as ciphertext, while unencrypted data is called plaintext. Currently, encryption is one of the most popular and effective data security methods used by organizations. Two main types of data encryption exist – asymmetric encryption, also known as public-key encryption, and symmetric encryption.


On May 25, 2018, a European privacy law is due to take effect that sets a new global bar for privacy rights, security, and compliance.

The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is  about protecting and enabling the privacy rights of individuals. The GDPR establishes strict  requirements governing how you manage and protect personal data — no matter where data is sent, processed, or stored.

GDPR now requires businesses to implement technical and organisational measures to provide appropriate protection to the personal data they hold. One of those measures is to ensure the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data held on personal computers and devices.

Our professional data encryption services provides a reliable and cost effective method of encrypting drives.

There are 2 methods, either by code (we provide a 12 digit code) or by data stick, computer boots only when data stick inserted.
