WinMagic Updates Disk Encryption

WinMagic announces the release of SecureDoc v.4.3

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- WinMagicR Inc., the innovative leader in full-disk encryption, today announces the release of SecureDoc v.4.3. This version incorporates an improved user-friendly Graphical User Interface

to make it simple for administrators to manage all communications between SecureDoc clients and the SecureDoc Enterprise Server in real-time. Increased functionality includes a new log system to provide administrators with enhanced system feedback, and a quarantine system to expedite the trouble shooting of communication problems.

SecureDoc v4.3's flexible functionality enables the system to determine whether communication with the server should be postponed to lower potential

network traffic. Designed to fit any organization's security policy, SecureDoc v4.3 also provides administrators and users with the ability to encrypt different partitions with respective encryption keys during the initial full-disk encryption process - making it simple to encrypt specific areas of the hard drive.

SecureDoc v4.3 provides improved Removable Media Encryption (RME) functionality, which can be easily enabled from a Windows Explorer browser. Regardless of whether an endpoint device is running SecureDoc full-disk encryption software or not, USB thumb drives can now be easily read with WinMagic's DiskViewer - a free download utility from the www.winmagic.com. This functionality makes it easy for SecureDoc users to not only encrypt removable media, but also transport the USB thumb drive for use on other computers without the purchase of additional licenses - provided the user authenticates to the USB device.
