May 07, 2018
Fujitsu today announces the availability in Scandinavia of military-grade security across its range of PCs and notebooks. The new option, designed for the GDPR, is the result of an agreement with Norwegian encrypted disk solution provider Hiddn Solutions ASA¹, and provides that data remains uncompromised in the event of a lost or stolen hardware device.

By embedding Hiddn’s secure SafeDisk solution into selected PCs and notebooks, Fujitsu is addressing the growing enterprise market for robust two-factor authentication (2FA) security solutions to protect sensitive data – a move towards helping organizations ensure compliance2 with the new EU GDPR directive. This comes into effect on May 25 and threatens substantial fines for any organization not complying with strict regulations to protect personal data. Hiddn’s solution is a hardware-based notebook and PC encryption where the key is stored on an external, removable smartcard, therefore offering a security level that supports these requirements.

Geir Ulvik, Head of Channel & Client Computing Devices Sales at Fujitsu in Scandinavia and Iceland, says: “The combination of secure technology from Fujitsu and Hiddn is a breakthrough for customers wanting robust security for mobile and desktop devices, and to support GDPR compliance. Fujitsu is a vendor authorized to deliver notebooks that meet NATO’s military-grade security requirements and Hiddn is able to provide certainty of data remaining uncompromised in case of a lost or stolen device. By embedding Hiddn’s SafeDisk laptop encryption solution in our technology, Fujitsu has further extended its lead as the provider of secure PCs and notebooks.”

Carl Espen Wollebekk, CEO at Hiddn Solutions, comments: “Fujitsu’s credentials for secure solutions are second-to-none. The fusion of Fujitsu’s deep understanding of secure solutions with Hiddn’s encryption technology is a powerful combination for enterprises seeking ultra-secure PCs and notebooks.”

The agreement between Fujitsu and Hiddn follows a period of extensive testing of Hiddn’s secure SafeDisk solution by Fujitsu’s made4you services at its manufacturing facility in Augsburg, Germany.

Pricing and availability

Fujitsu’s PCs and notebooks with SafeDisk are available now in Scandinavia and will be available in further European countries later this year. Pricing varies according to country and specifications.

Notes to editors

1 Hiddn Solutions ASA is a public limited company located in Oslo, Norway, and listed on the Oslo Stck Exchange (ticker: HIDDN). Hiddn supplies provides proprietary hardware-based authentication and encryption security solutions including SafeDisk, and coCrypt, an encrypted USB flash drive. Hiddn’s encryption product suite offers a superior level of security and ensures that sensitive information remains confidential and inaccessible to unauthorized users, even if the device is lost or stolen. Hiddn’s products are currently being used by the Norwegian Armed Forces, Norwegian and Dutch Government agencies and on NATO’s Northrop Grumman’s Global Hawks surveillance drone, for example.

2 When the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect on the 25th May, organisations subject to the GDPR will need to ensure any personal data they process has appropriate organisational and technical security measures to ensure its security. Sanctions and penalties will increase significantly for any loss of personal data and so organisations will be looking for improved ways to ensure that data is safe.
