By limiting the initial encryption to hard disk space that is actually 'used' and not all the available physical disk space, the performance gain can be dramatic, of course depending on the percentage of used disk space.
Safe Guard Enterprise 5.50 Device Encryption fully supports the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows 7 as well as 32-bit Windows XP.
The Server and Management Center support the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008/R2.
Local Self Help allows users who have forgotten their passwords to recover their password themselves by answering a set of previously enrolled questions without the need of central helpdesk involvement.
This saves helpdesk costs and reduces downtime on the users side keeping them more productive.
The Local Self Help function has already been available in the standalone mode of Safe Guard Enterprise 5.40 and is now extended to managed clients as well.
In turn, the formerly available Web Selfhelp add-on to Safe Guard Enterprise is discontinued for new customers, since its functionality can be covered by Local Self Help more efficiently.
The Web Helpdesk add-on to Safe Guard Enterprise is now included in the Management Center license and thus available to all customers out of the box with no extra cost.

A new, optimized handling of initial encryption using full-disk encryption is now available which typically leads to a significantly reduced duration of the initial encryption process.
