Hi,

I am looking for suggestions for a solution for one of my clients, there is a need to encrypt all data from local and cloud backups through to pc's and laptops, and have the ability to remote wipe if necessary, preferably all managed through a web portal. Any suggestion as to well established companies that supply that service would be appreciated.

For the "remote wipe" capability, I would only look at Absolute. I tried this out a while back, once the Absolute client is installed, it is REALLY difficult to uninstall. Removing the hard drive and installing a new OS on a virgin one won't even get rid of the agent. They also do geolocation quite well, even without GPS hardware, that can be a useful feature.

I was going to mention the same: LoJack by absolute: http://lojack.absolute.com/
But please note that once the hard drive gets removed, there is no way to wipe it from remote, since this super-duper persistence technology is embedded into the firmware of the laptop/tablet, not the hard drive's firmware, so it remains NO protection.

You will need to enforce strong encryption passwords, that's all. Remote Wipe sounds nice but only helps if the thieve leaves the drive in place.
