RSA interoperability for whole disk encryption product

PGP (GB) : 31 July, 2008  (New Product)
PGP certifies whole disk encryption product as compatible with SecurID SID800 and joins RSA Secured Partner Programme.
PGP Corporation has joined the RSA Secured Partner Programme to certify interoperability between PGP Whole Disk Encryption and the RSA SecurID SID800 hardware authenticator developed by RSA, The Security Division of EMC. To prevent data breaches and address regulatory compliance, organisations are deploying strong authentication to uniquely validate the identity of users. This certification enables organisations that have deployed both RSA SecurID technology and award-winning PGP Whole Disk Encryption to gain further leverage in their investment and enforce two-factor authentication policies alongside enhanced data protection for data on laptops, desktops, and removable media.

"Through the RSA Secured Partner programme, joint customers will have confidence in knowing that they have the combined benefit and security of our market-leading encryption technology used in conjunction with RSA SecurID two-factor authentication technology," noted Steven Schoenfeld, vice president of products and strategy, PGP Corporation. "Together with RSA, we are helping enterprises across the globe secure their critical business data wherever it lives or goes."

PGP Whole Disk Encryption provides comprehensive, non-stop disk encryption, enabling quick, cost-effective protection for data on PCs, laptops, and removable media. The encrypted data is continuously safeguarded from unauthorised access, providing strong security for intellectual property, customer and partner data, and corporate brand equity. PGP Whole Disk Encryption is now technically interoperable with the RSA SecurID SID800 hardware authenticator to control access to systems at pre-boot authentication, preventing unauthorised use even before the operating system boots or resumes.

"It is more critical than ever for companies to increase the security and integrity of their valuable information. In order to help our joint customers better protect their information, we are pleased to be working with PGP Corporation to achieve interoperability between RSA SecurID technology and PGP Whole Disk Encryption," said D.J. Long, senior director, Corporate Development at RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "Our organisations are committed to help mitigate risk to sensitive information throughout its lifecycle to ensure that it is always an asset - and not a liability - in order to allow organisations to accelerate their business objectives."
