SWDE stands for "Stanford Whole Disk Encryption." It refers both to the SWDE Application, which is used to encrypt Stanford Mac OS and Windows devices, and to SWDE settings management, which is enabled by the SWDE Application and provided by BigFix. SWDE settings management is required for all Mac OS and Windows devices that will have access to High Risk Data. The most noticeable effect is a 15-minute screen lock idle timeout.
