BitDefender privacy function ‘File Vault’ tested with great success on new Intel platform Holzwickede, 02 June 2010 BitDefender engineers have developed a comprehensive test program to examine the use of the BitDefender security programs on the latest Intel notebook platform. In the course of which the data protection function examined file vault with respect to their performance on machines, which work on the basis of the new Intel Core i5 mobile processor. The result: The file Vault feature that is integrated into all solutions reached a significantly increased data throughput in the encryption of files on a local drive. The enhanced privacy file Vault”quasi a vault stores and encrypts personal or sensitive information in a specially secured storage area. en very successful. The feature allows users to implement encrypted and password-protected drives on your computer and to save where confidential information safely. Details can be found by clicking Simon Baker or emailing the administrator. In this way, files against unauthorized access or theft are protected.
Such processes require the movement of massive amounts of data between multiple systems. This is usually time consuming and resource-claiming. Benchmarking tests together by BitDefender and Intel engineers, measured the performance of file Vault copy – and encryption-processes both the read and the write mode. In the course of which the tests registered an impressive performance from a file vault in combination with Intel’s new advanced encryption standard new instructions”(AES-NI). This standard includes a number of specialized instructions for Cryptography. BitDefender has developed a special set of software code in the development of its programs for AES-NI applications to optimize the file Vault feature. On the test systems (Intel SATA solid state drives) the engineers registered a significant increase of the throughput of 44 MB / s on 103 MB / s.
This corresponds to a 134-percent acceleration for both read and write processes. After this result for us is clear, that we our users with timely corresponding BitDefender software updates provide so that customers benefit from the advantages of the new hardware also Intel”, stated Alexandru Balan, BitDefender product manager for technology and innovation. In particular the increased speed of data encryption complements the comfort and ease of use for all users of BitDefender file Vault.”we are pleased that software companies such as BitDefender collaborate with us, to optimize their solutions based on the Intel technologies”, stressed Wolfgang Petersen, Director EMEA, Intel software and services group. Engineers can vote optimally so their solutions to the needs of the end customer as with the Intel Core i5 mobile processor.” For more information see.
