This chapter outlines the system requirements for the Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption Deployment Tool.

Full Disk Encryption System Requirements

Specification

Requirements

Processor

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz processor or equivalent

RAM

1 GB

Disk space

  • 30 GB

  • 20% free disk space

  • 256 MB contiguous free space

Network connectivity

Communication with PolicyServer required for managed agents

Operating system

  • Windows™ Embedded POSReady 7 (32-bit/64-bit)

  • Windows™ 10 (32-bit/64-bit)

    Note:

    Older builds of Windows 10 installed on endpoints where UEFI is enabled may encounter issues if secure boot is turned on. To prevent this issue, install all service packs, hotfixes and security patches for Windows 10 before proceeding with the installation.

  • Windows™ 8.1 (32-bit/64-bit)

  • Windows™ 8 (32-bit/64-bit)

  • Windows™ 7 (32-bit/64-bit)

Firmware interface

  • BIOS: all supported operating systems

  • UEFI: all supported operating systems

Other software

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or later (Windows 7 and later operating systems)

Hard disk

Full Disk Encryption uses software-based encryption for all standard drives (drives without self-encryption).

Full Disk Encryption uses hardware-based encryption for the following self-encrypting drives (SEDs):

  • Seagate OPAL and OPAL 2 drives

  • SanDisk self-encrypting solid-state drives

Full Disk Encryption has the following limitations:

  • Full Disk Encryption does not support RAID and SCSI drives.

  • Full Disk Encryption does not support eDrive drives for Windows 8 or later environments.

Hard disk controllers

  • Software encryption: ATA, AHCI, or IRRT hard disk controller

  • Hardware encryption: AHCI hard disk controller
