SvKMS with BitLocker

Easily manage hundreds or thousands of BitLocker backup keys

BitLocker is attractive for encryption, but must be managed correctly

BitLocker is a built-in encryption feature for Windows, providing full volume AES 128-bit or 256-bit software encryption. It helps mitigate unauthorized data access by enhancing file and system protections and protects against theft of data on a lost or stolen computer, preventing unauthorized users from using hacking tools to get access to the data.

BitLocker also helps render data inaccessible when BitLocker-protected computers are decommissioned or recycled. As such, BitLocker is an attractive method of security for the individual computers used by an organization’s workforce.

However, when a Windows machine is encrypted with BitLocker, the backup encryption keys are often stored in an external device such as a USB key, relying on users to retain their backup key, taking control out of the hands of the IT administrator.

Secure, enterprise-grade key management for BitLocker

StorMagic SvKMS can provide an effective and secure enterprise-wide management console for BitLocker drive encryption by using external and secure encryption key protection instead of relying on external backup keys that may be lost by the user.

Integrating StorMagic SvKMS with BitLocker

As a separate key manager, StorMagic SvKMS can integrate with BitLocker and provide a centralized management tool for all BitLocker keys. This greatly reduces the complexity of managing all the keys within an organization, particularly when there are hundreds or thousands of computers to encrypt.

The BitLocker backup keys are protected through SvKMS, making it easy for administrators to encrypt Windows machines within their organization. When BitLocker encrypts a drive it creates a data encryption key (DEK) which typically has a vulnerable username and password authentication method. With SvKMS, the DEK is protected by an external key encryption key (KEK). The KEK is used to unlock the drive in a secure and centralized fashion.
