Benefits and features
An all-in-one security solution, Acer ProShield provides an embedded security solution that addresses key vulnerabilities by securing the device against unauthorized access, protecting local storage and securing the network.
Features range from boot and login security with advanced facial recognition, to self-encrypting hard drives and a data shedder to dispose of sensitive documents.
Acer ProShield includes modules that will secure your device from unauthorized access and intrusion:
- Credential Manager - manages security credentials, including Pre-boot authentication, fingerprint or face recognition and access for online accounts.
- Data Protection - Acer ProShield can encrypt or decrypt individual files with 128-bit protection. The Personal Secure Drive (PSD) is a secure partition where you can keep sensitive files. Files stored in the PSD can only be accessed with your choice of password or fingerprint authentication.
Data Protection includes Device Lock, which controls access to devices and drives to ensure that data remains safe when the computer is unattended.
- Data Removal – Acer ProShield includes a File Shredder. Certified for DoD 5220.22M, the US requirement for all government contractors with classified information, the File Shredder uses a three-pass overwriting algorithm to delete and overwrite data. It is able to permanently erase 2 GB of data in two minutes.
