Mobile Armor, Seagate Team on Security

ST. LOUIS -- Mobile Armor, Inc., the leader in mobile data protection for the U.S. Government and recipient of the largest single award for data-at-rest encryption, has teamed with Seagate to provide a complete data protection solution that leverages Seagate(R) Momentus(R) self-encrypting hard drives to deliver powerful security for laptop computers. This collaboration delivers management, authentication, and auditing capabilities for laptop PCs powered by Seagate Momentus 2.5-inch hard drives and running Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems.

With the proliferation of data theft and the continued loss of confidential and sensitive information, organizations are constantly searching for data loss prevention solutions that can manage encryption in mixed hardware and software environments.

Organizations today are also challenged with proving compliance and meeting other corporate governance requirements. The associated risks in not being able to do so include financial impact, audits, customer turnover, and lost productivity.

"Seagate's collaboration with Mobile Armor gives organizations an easy-to-deploy full disk encryption (FDE) solution that automatically encrypts data and manages multiple policies and controls to greatly simplify laptop security for IT administrators and end users," said Joan Motsinger, Seagate(R) vice president, Personal Systems Marketing and Strategy. "Our joint mission enables fast, cost-effective deployment of powerful plug-and-play data security, making it easier for enterprises and government agencies to protect digital assets from theft and loss."
