ZENworks 11 SP3 Full Disk Encryption Supported Self-Encrypting Drives

May 2014

1.0 General Support

ZENworks 11 SP3 Full Disk Encryption provides pre-boot authentication for self-encrypting hard drives that use TCG Opal 1.0 or 2.0 technology.

However, because Opal can be implemented differently by different drive manufacturers, not all TCG Opal 1.0 and 2.0 disks are compatible with ZENworks Full Disk Encryption. If possible, we recommend that you use the drive models listed in Known Compatible Drives below. When deploying Full Disk Encryption to other drive models, you should ensure compatibility by testing one drive before deploying to multiple drives.
