NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 09, 2008) - SkyRecon(r) Systems (, the premier provider of integrated, proactive endpoint security solutions, today announced that it is set to deliver full disk encryption capabilities as an addition to its comprehensive multi-layered endpoint protection platform, StormShield(r) Security Suite.

SkyRecon is maintaining its promise to deliver the most comprehensive, lightweight, single client endpoint protection offering by delivering an integrated full-disk encryption security layer that leverages the same tried-and-true AES 256-bit Embeddable Encryption Module(tm) already in use in its file-based encryption layer. This is the same module that is currently on target for FIPS 140-2 validation by ICSA Labs. ( Scheduled for availability in Q1, 2009, organizations no longer have to choose between full disk encryption and file-based encryption; nor do they have to add yet another vendor, nor another security agent. StormShield Security Suite allows businesses to benefit from a single client that delivers:

-- Pre-boot, full disk encryption (system-level protections) -- System and data protection in case of system loss or theft -- Authorized access with boot protection and pre-boot authentication -- Supports Single Sign-On (SSO) -- Post-boot, file-based encryption (user/information-level protections) -- Transparent, fast, on-the-fly encryption; no user interaction required -- Multi-user capable; ensures data protection between user(s) and IT staff -- Always-on protection; encrypts within OS swap files -- Automatic secure file erasure/wipe; protects deleted files -- Extremely fast, transparent encryption and decryption -- Native Active Directory enabled, location-aware policy enforcement -- Integrated, centralized encryption key management -- Integration with Windows authentication; option for secondary authentication -- Centralized auditing, logging, and compliance reporting -- Lost/stolen system lockdown and data protection; prevent unauthorized use and enable secure recovery of a lost or stolen laptop, desktop, or server

"SkyRecon is pleased to offer organizations the best of both worlds, giving them the choice to leverage a single client for on-the-fly file-based encryption, full disk encryption, or both," says Sean Martin, CISSP, Vice President of Marketing at SkyRecon Systems. "Now, organizations don't have to trade-off either type of protection; they can decide which technologies to use to best meet both their business and operational needs -- without having to pay for and add another security agent to the systems. They can meet their regulatory checkmark with full disk encryption and their internal operational and security requirements with the multi-key, multi-user, file-based encryption; all with a single, lightweight client from a single vendor."
