WinMagic Provides Encryption For Windows, Mac Environments

SecureDoc v4.6 now provides centrally manageable and fully transparent, "always-on" full-disk encryption for Windows (2000/XP/Vista) and Mac

Mississauga, Ontario - March 19, 2009 - WinMagic (www.winmagic.com), the innovative leader in disk encryption, today announced it has solved the problems associated with deploying enterprise-class full-disk encryption throughout a heterogeneous computing environment including support for Mac and 64-bit Windows clients. SecureDoc now provides centrally-manageable and fully-transparent, 'always-on' full-disk encryption for Windows (2000/XP/Vista) and Mac - making it simple for organizations to protect all data on all servers, desktops, laptops and removable media.

Mac computers are often not included in encryption deployments - many enterprise networks are primarily Windows-based, and Mac platforms are used by select departments or individuals (including many executives). SecureDoc offers the ability to deploy and manage encryption for Mac desktops and laptops from the same console that is used to manage the Windows machines. This drives greater efficiency for IT & Security staff while ensuring sensitive data is protected. Centralized escrow and management of encryption keys also ensures continued access to data for authorized users in the event of lost passwords, departing employees or other challenges.

SecureDoc also supports and manages hardware-encrypted disk drives such as the Seagate(r) Momentus(r) FDE and BlackArmorT drives, as well as the upcoming TCG "Opal" specification drives from other leading drive manufacturers. This provides organizations with the flexibility to deploy any combination of hardware and software-based encryption - or transition between the two - with full transparency for end users and a consistent management interface for administrators.

Additional versatility results from SecureDoc's ability to simplify the deployment of any combination of sector-based full-disk encryption, file-and-folder encryption, container encryption and self-extractor encryption. This not only makes it easy for organizations to customize data protection to meet specific security protocols, but also 'future proofs' their investment in SecureDoc for Windows, Mac and Linux environments.

"Comprehensive data security requires protection across many types of endpoints and many platforms," said Thi Nguyen-Huu, CEO of WinMagic Inc. "With more organizations utilizing a combination of operating systems, it simply makes sense to provide a single solution that provides cost-effective and user-friendly full-disk encryption for heterogeneous environments," Nguyen-Huu continued. "SecureDoc now makes it simple for the administrator and end user to ensure all data on all devices is protected at all times - whether they are working on Windows and Mac."

Simple and reliable to deploy, SecureDoc provides administrators with powerful centralized management across multiple operating systems and endpoints, leading to superior control and a lower total cost of ownership for the solution.

An overview of SecureDoc functionality is available on the WinMagic Inc. website at http://www.winmagic.com/products/securedoc_disk_encryption.

SecureDoc version 4.6 additional enhancements include:

* BlackArmor Drive Support

* Dell E-Series Integrated Smartcard Reader Support

* Redesigned and Enhanced Active Directory Synchronization

* New Token and Smartcard Support

* Several Improvements to Administration Console

* Credential Provider Support for Vista
