Enterprise encryption contract for PKWare

PKWare : 07 May, 2009  (Application Story)
The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered SecureZIP from PKWare for use across 50,000 workdesks to standardise on Windows encryption
PKWare has been awarded a large enterprise software license and maintenance agreement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). PKWare's SecureZIP software will initially be deployed across 50,000 Microsoft Windows desktops and servers at the FAA and Department of Transportation (DOT).

"Persistent data encryption and effective key management are necessary for the comprehensive protection of sensitive information as it travels or is stored inside and outside of an organization's network," said John Pescatore, VP and Distinguished Analyst for Gartner's Security and Risk Management group.

SecureZIP seals sensitive information in secure containers, while leveraging NIST certified encryption, without hindering necessary agency workflows or business interactions. SecureZIP protects a myriad of data types in files, folders, or email while the information is in motion or at rest.

"We are pleased and honored to have won the FAA award for the SecureZIP license agreement," said Dr. George Haddix, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for PKWare, Inc. "We look forward to helping the FAA safeguard sensitive information as the agency continues to keep our US airspace system safe and secure."

The FAA purchase of SecureZIP is the latest success for PKWare. SecureZIP has been sold to over 100 government agencies and over 30,000 distinct corporate entities worldwide in various industries including banking, financial services, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, retail, and telecommunications.

SecureZIP helps government agencies, as well as corporations, achieve privacy and compliance requirements. Effective policy management tools and user-centric design offer transparency and ease of use, while enabling appropriate organizational security controls. Information is available to authorized individuals, but is rendered useless to hackers or thieves.

PKWare partner, HMS Technologies, a certified Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Business (SDVOB), helped facilitate the FAA's purchase order for the SecureZIP software license and maintenance agreement.

SecureZIP fulfills the cryptographic compliance initiatives necessary for the FAA to meet the requirements of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum M-07-16, "Safeguarding Against and Responding to the Breach of Personally Identifiable Information." It also satisfies the FIPS 140-2 data security standards set forth by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). SecureZIP further meets the requirements of the FAA and DOT orders for the protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
