ControlGuard announced a partnership agreement with PGP Corporation, a global leader in enterprise data security and encryption solutions. The two companies have delivered an integrated solution that provides customers with greater flexibility and control in managing the removable media devices across their enterprise. The integration responds to customers’ growing concerns with data leakage, and the need to ensure that content copied to USB drives and similar devices can be protected and encrypted according to policy. Customers can now effectively manage endpoints using device-specific access policies.
The solution combines PGP Whole Disk Encryption with ControlGuard Endpoint Manager, enabling organizations to enrich the management of their data protection policies. A best-in-class application widely adopted across all verticals and enterprises of all sizes, PGP Whole Disk Encryption provides comprehensive, non-stop disk encryption, enabling quick, cost-effective protection for content. The application leverages the PGP Encryption Platform for central management from a single administrative console, ensuring consistent policy enforcement and lower IT operational costs.
“PGP Corporation is committed to delivering robust, scalable security solutions that today’s enterprises expect and demand,” said Steve Schoenfeld, vice president of products, PGP Corporation. “Integrating PGP Whole Disk Encryption with ControlGuard’s granular port and device control technology extends the value of the PGP Encryption Platform and platform-enabled applications, enabling customers to prevent and alleviate the costly consequences of lost or stolen portable storage devices. We’re pleased to work with ControlGuard to deliver this market-driven functionality.”
