The company said that its new Hardware Password Manager tool will allow admins to manage and reset employee passwords for all systems, including those which run full disc encryption security systems.Encryption systems are often recommended as a central tool for preventing data breaches. However, encrypted drives can be difficult to manage and recover data from when passwords are lost and administrators are unable to decrypt the data.Lenovo hopes that the new tool will not only make life easier for administrators, but also promote the use of encryption tools in the workplace by removing that worry."Encrypting drives offer state of the art protection for PC data, but companies everywhere previously had difficulty managing them," explained Peter Schrady, Lenovo's vice president and general manager of enterprise, software and Peripherals."Lenovo's new Hardware Password Manager product provides an easy tool to reset passwords by remote control, including full-encryption drives."The company said that it plans to make the password management tool available in May.
