Protects data on assets ranging from USB flash drives to departmental servers
Symantec has extended its encryption offering with the launch of PGP Whole Disk Encryption, with support for Intel Anti-Theft Technology, Endpoint Encryption (SEE) Removable Storage edition with integrated Data Loss Prevention capabilities, Endpoint Encryption Device Control and the newest version of Endpoint Encryption Full Disk edition.
The company said that the new PGP Whole Disk Encryption features offerings for protecting data on assets ranging from USB flash drives to laptops to departmental servers.
The integration of Intel Anti-Theft Technology into PGP Whole Disk Encryption allows customers to protect their devices and their data while helping to deter notebook computer thefts and protect systems during shipping.
The Intel’s hardware-based asset protection and theft deterrence offering enables network administrators to remotely disable functionality on these corporate assets after a theft or loss.
Symantec said that the PGP Whole Disk Encryption will also offer enhanced performance through support for Intel AES-NI technology, available in Intel Core i5 and i7 processors.
The company’s Endpoint Encryption Device Control manages the use of portable storage devices and media drives by providing safeguards such as monitoring device usage and file transfer activity, controlling access to ports, devices and wireless networks, and restricting users’ ability to copy protected classes of information.
PGP Whole Disk Encryption with support for Intel Anti-Theft Technology version 2.0 is scheduled to be available in winter 2011, subject to US trade compliance approval.
Symantec Endpoint Encryption Device Control, Endpoint Encryption Removable Storage Edition and Endpoint Encryption Full Disk with support for Mac OS X are scheduled to be available in winter 2011.
