Capgemini UK plc Boosts The Security Of Its Network And Mobile Data With Utimaco Safeware Solutions

Oberursel, July 28, 2004 – Utimaco Safeware, a major European provider of professional security solutions, confirmed today that consulting, technology and outsourcing services provider Capgemini has selected its encryption and access control solutions to enhance the security of its corporate and mobile data network.

Capgemini will use Utimaco’s SafeGuard Easy, marketed by the security vendor as the ‘electronic fortress for laptops and notebooks’, to provide a robust hard disk encryption and access control solution for its mobile devices, providing vital around the clock protection for confidential business data.

Capgemini will further enhance the protection of its corporate data in the UK using SafeGuard LANCrypt, which provides increased control of confidential data across the enterprise, whether stored on PCs, server networks or mobile devices. SafeGuard LANcrypt automatically encrypts selected files or directories and allows organisations to quickly and easily define access rights for individual users or user groups, thereby preventing information falling into the wrong hands, either within or outside the organisation.

Nick Naylor, security consultant, Capgemini, commented; “With consultants throughout the UK, at both client sites and our own, mobile security has always been a key focus for us. We are constantly reviewing our security standards to ensure that we are using the best possible security solutions available on the market today; which in turn enables us to provide confidentiality and integrity assurances for all of our customers.”

“With the increasing popularity of laptops, PDAs, Smartphones and the like comes the increasing incidence of theft and loss relating to these portable devices. Organisations that regularly process highly- sensitive data on behalf of their customers can no longer afford to take the risk that it might be inappropriately accessed,” explained Jackie Groves, managing director of Utimaco Safeware Limited. “Our solutions essentially offer mobile device users various levels of protection that can be increased modularly in line with the confidentiality needs of the business, while at the same time making it easy for the corporate office to centrally manage those devices.”
