New version of Pointsec Linux encryption software released

Pointsec announced the latest version of its endpoint encryption software for Linux desktops and laptops, Pointsec for Linux 2.0. Committed to its continued support of Linux-based operating systems, Pointsec now offers Linux users new features including support for remote help, single sign-on and broader security

The newest version of Pointsec for Linux continues to provide an endpoint encryption solution with an even lower total cost of ownership, through improved usability and management features that ease the burden on administrators.  With its support for standard Linux kernels, users and administrators are not required to rebuild the kernel in order to work with Pointsec for Linux 2.0.
Through the new support for remote help feature, Pointsec for Linux 2.0 allows users to reset their password through the help desk and regain access to their system.  This feature combats a common problem of forgotten passwords and lowers an organization’s total cost of ownership by easing operational cost and potential downtime while retaining the security provided by role-based administration.
