Having researched all available data encryption solutions from the leading solution providers, Amper selected WinMagic‟s SecureDoc full-disk encryption based on numerous pre-determined criteria. “We wanted a full-disk encryption solution that would provide strong central management, a transparent user experience, no back door access to a device, excellent customer support, the capability to expand data encryption to protect removable media, and the ability to provide seamless integration with biometric devices when we begin using them in the future,” said Toma Lazar, Amper‟s System Administrator. “SecureDoc provided the full-disk encryption solution we needed in terms of support, security, usability and total cost of ownership,” Lazar continued. “SecureDoc makes it simple for us to centrally manage WinMagic‟s SecureDoc for over 500 users, while its transparent operation ensures that our accountants can use their laptops just as they did before they were encrypted – ensuring the added data protection did not prevent them from providing our customers with the high-level value-added services for which Amper is recognized.” SecureDoc has enabled Amper to meet all its data security requirements. “SecureDoc provides Amper with unsurpassed data security and protection, enabling us to exceed our client‟s information privacy expectations with a solution that is both cost effective and easily managed,” noted Amper‟s Information Technology Director, Robert Risk. “Increasingly, organizations are seeking a comprehensive centrally-managed encryption solution that can transparently protect all data within a heterogeneous IT environment,” said Joseph Belsanti, Vice President of Marketing at WinMagic Inc. “SecureDoc makes it simple to centrally manage the encryption of all data residing on PC and Mac clients, standard hard drives, self-encrypting drives, USB thumb drives as well as CD/DVDs and SD cards,” Belsanti continued. “The SecureDoc Enterprise Server also provides administrators with a single intuitive console that enables centralized policy management for dynamic encryption key provisioning, password rules, port control and disk access control to make it easy for authorized users to transparently access all encrypted data.” Compatible with all editions of Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000 as well as Mac and Linux platforms, SecureDoc‟s centrally-managed full-disk encryption (combining sector-by-sector encryption, file and folder encryption and removable media encryption) protects all data stored on servers, desktops, laptops and removable media, such as USB thumb drives. SecureDoc also supports and manages hardware-encrypted disk drives such as the Seagate® Momentus® FDE and BlackArmor™ drives as well as the TCG “Opal” specification drives. This provides organizations with the flexibility to deploy any combination of hardware/software-based encryption – or transition between the two – with full transparency for users and a consistent management interface for administrators. This not only makes it easy to customize data protection to meet any security protocol, but also „future-proofs‟ investment in encryption.
