PGP Brings Government-Approved Security to Mac OS X

InternetNews, ChannelWeb

Data encryption specialist PGP announced an update to its Whole Disk Encryption product that brings same level of functionality and security to Macintoshes as the product already provides to Windows.The new Whole Disk Encryption 9.9 uses pre-boot authentication to protect the contents of internal, external, and removable drives, including boot sectors, system, and swap files. It is also the only data encryption solution for Mac that comes with a FIPS 140-2 validation -- a federal cryptographic standard imposed on corporations by government agencies.

But equally significant is the Mac-Windows parity. "It's really important to have protection for both," said John Dasher, PGP's director of product management. "The people who are on Macs need to be able to share information securely with Windows users, or take a take a thumb drive to Windows users. Our product supports that functionality."

Whole Disk Encryption for Mac will ship in July and start at $120 per license.InternetNews, ChannelWeb
