Comprehensive data protection and compliance

Full disk encription (FDE) - full compliance and data protection

GravityZone Full Disk Encryption encrypts boot and non-boot volumes on fixed disks, desktops and laptops and gives you simple remote management of the encryption keys.

It provides centralized handling of the native device encryption mechanisms provided by Windows (BitLocker) and Mac (FileVault and the diskutil command-line utility) to ensure optimal compatibility and performance.

Capabilities & Benefits

data encryption

GravityZone Full Disk Encryption (FDE) leverages the native encryption mechanisms provided by Windows (BitLocker) and Mac (FileVault and diskutil command-line utility) to ensure compatibility and performance. There is no additional agent to deploy and no key management server to install. Encryption-specific reports provide visibility and control and help prove regulatory compliance.

centralized security management

The GravityZone Control Center provides a single, centralized console not only for protecting all your endpoints from malicious software and targeted attacks but also for compliance reporting and encryption key recovery. The simplicity and ease of management enable security personnel to stay focused and work more efficiently.

pre-boot authentication enforcement

Pre-boot authentication prevents anything from being read from the hard disk, such as the operating system until the user has confirmed they have the correct password credentials. This guarantees a secure, tamper-proof environment external to the operating system as a trusted authentication layer.



GravityZone Full Disk Encryption is an optional add-on to Bitdefender’s integrated GravityZone security platform. Our award-winning security platform unifies hardening, prevention, detection, response, and services across all endpoints, networks, email, and cloud platforms.

IT Manager testimonial - Mews Partners, Mathieu Barre

“With Full-Disk Encryption, it’s easy to manage the BitLocker encryption keys from the GravityZone console. With people working from home due to COVID-19, it’s useful that we can manage the blocking and unblock of encrypted devices remotely. GravityZone provides an important layer of protection and security for our clients’ proprietary data and intellectual property stored on our workstations.”

Why do I need GravityZone Full Disk Encryption?

GravityZone Full Disk Encryption (FDE) prevents unauthorized access to your entire hard drive all at once. Thousands of laptops are lost or stolen every week. Without full disk encryption, whoever finds (or has stolen) it can access the data on the disk drive.

Why passwords aren’t enough?

Even though passwords might stop malicious actors from logging into the device and using it, the data disk is still available to anyone by simply removing the drive and installing it on another computer. FDE secures the data on the disk drive, no matter who has physical possession.

How can I get it?

GravityZone Full Disk Encryption is an optional add-on module to any of Bitdefender’s GravityZone endpoint security solutions. It is available for purchase online or through one of our trusted partners.

What are the minimum requirements?

The GravityZone Full Disk Encryption module uses the existing hardware resources in your GravityZone environment. From a software perspective, the requirements are almost the same as for Windows BitLocker, or FileVault and the diskutil command-line utility for Mac, and most of the limitations refer to these tools.
