Manual / Conseal Server Concepts / Dual Locks™

The fallibility in traditional, one-dimensional encryption is that no matter how strong the type of encryption used (e.g. 128 or 256-bit AES) there is usually one single point of weakness — the password.

Research has shown that passwords can typically be broken within 16 minutes via techniques like dictionary attacks or through social engineering, rendering the encrypted data free to access.

Conseal provides significantly stronger protection and control over data than any other product on the market via its Dual Locks™ technology. This ensures that the encryption key is not based on the password, nor is it stored on the disk, nor on the server itself. As a result the strength of the protection is not limited to the complexity of the password alone. With Conseal, even if a hacker got hold of the device — and even if they figured out the password — the decryption key could not be revealed.

Devices can only be unlocked with the permission of the server, which is what allows administrators to set access rules or view extensive history audits for devices.
