Protegrity Partners With PGP To Provide End to End Data Encryption

PGP (GB) : 20 May, 2010  (Company News)
Continuous protection for sensitive data is the goal of a new partnership struck between PGP and Protegrity
PGP Corporation and Protegrity USA have announced a new partnership to provide enterprise users with the industry's most comprehensive end-to-end encryption of sensitive data throughout its lifecycle and wherever it flows. Solutions from PGP Corporation and Protegrity will bring together desktop data protection and server data protection - all under centralized and automated key management, policy management, and administration.

The unique PGP Corporation and Protegrity approach leverages the three pillars of total protection for sensitive data: (1) end-to-end encryption for any kind of sensitive data in any location; (2) automated key management; and (3) centralized administration and reporting to address compliance. The integration of PGP Corporation's market-leading suite of trusted data protection solutions to protect sensitive data wherever it goes with Protegrity's product offerings for those customers that require database encryption, tokenization, format-controlled encryption, and masking delivers the only true end-to-end data protection solution of its kind in today's market.

"We couldn't be more pleased that we are now able to bring our customers the first true end-to-end data protection solution to protect their sensitive data regardless of where it resides and how it is used," said Jim Adkins, VP of Products and Technology, PGP Corporation. "Through this partnership of data protection market leaders, we also can now provide our customers with a more complete encryption offering for those that require database protection, tokenization and a format-controlled encryption solution."

With trusted data protection solutions from PGP Corporation and Protegrity, organizations can tap market leading security technologies to ensure data access is always governed by policy, along with the ability to verify compliance with policy to business auditors. Organizations that need to comply with PCI Data Security Standard can also leverage the PGP Corporation and Protegrity offering as an end-to-end encryption solution to provide total protection for sensitive cardholder data.

"By partnering with PGP Corporation, the leader in trusted data protection, we are able to provide our customers who are looking for total protection of their sensitive data the ability to extend their existing database and server-based encryption to the endpoints and everywhere in between," said Iain Kerr, CEO, Protegrity. "Organizations will have the ability to enforce policies for sensitive data protection that define what information must be protected, who has access to it, and how it can be used. This will allow customers to comply with a variety of business policies, industry rules, laws, and regulations and verify their compliance to policy with auditors."

The partnered solutions provided by PGP Corporation and Protegrity create true end-to-end encryption for any enterprise requirement. End-to-end encryption is defined by this partnership as: encryption occurring at the point where sensitive data is acquired, to intermediary points across networks, operating systems, storage systems, applications, databases, emails, files, and to any endpoint device. In every instance, any attempt to read the data requires use of an authorized key. Without the key, the sensitive data stays unreadable and remains protected.

"This partnership delivers one of the most compelling end-to-end encryption solutions in today's market," said Jon Oltsik, Principal Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "The degree of total data protection PGP Corporation and Protegrity are offering will be especially attractive for companies that are looking to comply with PCI DSS, HIPAA, state data protection and breach notification laws, and other mandates, industry regulations, and security best practices."
