Inc. Booth #442

London, UK, February 22, 2013 -- Becrypt, a leading supplier of cyber
security solutions to national, federal and local governments, law
enforcement agencies, and other public and commercial sector
organizations, has today announced the availability of DISK Protect for
Microsoft Windows 8 tablets, featuring unique on-screen pre-boot keyboard
support. This significantly extends the range of touch-screen devices
that can now benefit from Becrypt’s full disk encryption solution. The
tablet solution includes on-screen, touch-friendly pre-boot
authentication, enabling users to login/authenticate before the main
operating system is booted, avoiding the issue of authenticating after a
machine may already be compromised.

The long term partnership between Fujitsu and Becrypt has spawned a spate
of industry collaborations, including the joint announcement in November
2011 of the first ultra-secure tablet encryption solution suitable for
government use. Both Becrypt and Fujitsu have once again teamed up on the
development of this latest encryption solution. As Michael Keegan,
Executive Director of Fujitsu’s Technology Product Group, says: “With
public and private sector organizations now fully embracing mobility
programs, the need for sensitive data protection on the move is more
essential than ever. The combined solution offered by the Fujitsu
STYLISTIC Q572 tablet and STYLISTIC Q702 hybrid (coming soon) with
Becrypt DISK Protect encryption for Windows 8, provides an off-the-shelf,
fully certified security package that ensures data is fully protected
against breach in the event of loss or theft. We are confident this will
continue to deliver peace-of-mind to organisations of any.”

Dr. Bernard Parsons, CEO at Becrypt commented; “DISK Protect for
Microsoft Windows 8 tablets is a major step forward in Becrypt’s
provision of security solutions for tablets. While securing data for
Bring Your Own Device initiatives is likely to remain a challenge for
organizations with sensitive data, IT departments can now offer a more
viable Choose Your Own Device option to staff where sensitive data can be
protected. As a result, we expect to see a greater adoption of tablets
in the security conscious business market.”

DISK Protect, Becrypt’s full disk encryption solution, provides 256 bit
encryption and is compliant with FIPS 140-2, making it is suitable for
U.S. and Canadian Federal governments and organizations requiring a FIPS
compliant solution.

DISK Protect also provides USB encryption, single-sign-on options and can
be managed centrally using Becrypt Enterprise Manager, enabling the
deployment of 1000’s of devices (desktops, laptops and tablets) in a
matter of hours.
DISK Protect for Microsoft Windows 8 tablets will be available through
the channel from Becrypt’s network of value added resellers and partner
distributors. Support will initially be available for a limited number of
touch screen devices and will expand to include the latest models through
the ongoing collaboration between Becrypt and industry-leading tablet
manufacturers such as Samsung, Fujitsu and HP.

HP elected to work with Becrypt for its experience and expertise in the
enterprise, as well as with restricted, government and military specific
requirements. Becrypt‘s collaboration with HP will help its clients meet
their security challenges and ensure compliance with internal processes
for the protection of data and broader legislation.

DISK Protect for Microsoft Windows 8 will be available on several tablets
including:

Samsung XE700T
Fujitsu STYLISTIC Q702 (coming soon)
Dell XPS 12
