SAN FRANCISCO and TORONTO -- WinMagic Data Security, the innovative leader in endpoint security, will demonstrate SecureDoc 4.6, the first comprehensive enterprise-class full-disk encryption solution for heterogeneous computing environments, at the RSA Conference 2009 (booth 831). WinMagic will show how SecureDoc 4.6 provides centrally-manageable and fully-transparent, ‘always-on’ full-disk encryption for Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows 2000/XP/Vista, and Mac – making it simple for organizations to protect all data on all servers, desktops, laptops and removable media.

Mac computers are often not included in encryption deployments – many enterprise networks are primarily Windows-based, and Mac platforms are used by select departments or individuals (including many executives). SecureDoc offers the ability to configure, deploy and manage encryption for Mac desktops and laptops from the same console that is used to manage the Windows machines. This drives greater efficiency for IT and security staff while ensuring sensitive data is protected. Centralized escrow and management of encryption keys also ensures continued access to data for authorized users in the event of lost passwords, departing employees or other challenges.

WinMagic’s in-booth demonstrations will include all-new SecureDoc full-disk encryption for the Mac in an enterprise, support for the new OPAL standard and Linux platforms that do not require a Windows partition; seamless support for the Seagate (NYSE: STX) Momentus 5400 FDE.2 drive; how to incorporate file and folder encryption as an extra security layer on top of full-disk encryption (for both network shared and file/folder encryption); how to benefit from new hosting services that provide the SecureDoc Enterprise Server as a SaaS; how to employ the embedded UPEK fingerprint reader with SecureDoc full-disk encryption at pre-boot for end user authentication; and how SecureDoc can now provide a Digital ID Management System to extend/embed signature and/or encryption functionality in all Microsoft Office products, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access.

“The RSA Conference has always been an ideal venue for WinMagic to showcase its leading innovation,” said Thi Nguyen-Huu, CEO of WinMagic Inc. “WinMagic has been setting new enterprise data protection benchmarks for over a decade, and at this year’s conference we will continue this tradition by demonstrating how SecureDoc 4.6 is the first encryption solution to enable organizations to configure, deploy and manage PC, and Mac clients from a single intuitive console,” Nguyen-Huu continued. “We will also show how SecureDoc 4.6’s transparent “always-on” functionality ensures a positive customer experience.”
