Partnership for device encryption technology distribution in the UK.

AN4 Group : 20 June, 2007  (Company News)
AN4 has teamed up with BeCrypt to distribute data security technology in the UK based on customer demand after high profile data losses.
AN4 Group has announced an agreement with BeCrypt to become its latest UK partner. The move follows requests from several existing clients after a recent and highly publicised incident involving a lost laptop and subsequent fine from the FSA.

"We have had a number of requests from existing clients for a solution to protect data on desktops, laptops and removable data devices in the wake of the story regarding lost data at a major UK financial institution hitting the press, " comments Kristian Connor, Sales Director for AN4 Group, "The incident was a bit of a wake up call for many, especially within financial services, and we were contacted by a number of customers for a potential solution."

In response, AN4 Group evaluated several encryption products. "Of the vendors we looked at, BeCrypt provided the most comprehensive protection across fixed disks, removable media and PDA devices as well as an impeccable reference list of customers," comments Connor.

Since it was founded in 2001, BeCrypt has worked with major global corporate organisations as well as the UK Government and the Ministry of Defence on many security development projects. Its range of software tools provides data security for desktops, laptops, PDAs as well as removable media. BeCrypt products are certified under various security assurance schemes, including the CESG Assisted Products Scheme (CAPS); the CCT Mark scheme and the Defence INFOSEC Procurement Co-Operation Group (DIPCOG) Committee for use by the MOD and associated Defence Contractors.

"We are pleased to welcome AN4 Group to the BeCrypt partner programme, " comments Richard Brooks, Director of Sales EMEA at BeCrypt, "Delivering enterprise-wide encryption and data security management requires a combination of good technology and understanding of security best practice.

"We applaud AN4 for undertaking our recommended advanced training courses to help it meet the needs of its clients encryption requirements and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship." Mr Brooks adds.

Since joining the partner programme in early May, a team from AN4 Group has finished full sales and technical training on the BeCrypt range including its DISK Protect, PDA Protect, Protect Manager and Connect Protect product lines. AN4 Group will use Sigma Software Distribution for fulfilment.

AN4 Group is also in discussion with one financial services company and two local government organisations in respect to deploying a BeCrypt based solutions, which are provisionally planned for implementation in Q3 of 2007.
