PGP releases a bunch of updated products
PGP Corporation announced the latest release of the PGP Encryption Platform along with general availability of PGP NetShare 9.9, PGP Universal Server 2.9 and PGP Whole Disk Encryption 9.9, including PGP Whole Disk Encryption for Mac OS X.
PGP NetShare 9.9 – Defending Network Shared Files
PGP NetShare 9.9 solves a critical need for file sharing organizations, by allowing administrators to easily set policy-based encryption by application — wherever data may reside. With PGP NetShare, enterprises can utilize centralized policy to automatically enforce data protection for any application, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, no matter where the application or file is located. For example, every Word document can be encrypted as soon as it is created, updated or saved to a local file, temp file, flash drive or file server. PGP NetShare’s ability to set policies by application also extends to custom in-house corporate applications, without having to edit code.
PGP Universal Server 2.9 – Offline Policy control
PGP Universal Server 2.9 has added capabilities that enable organizations to enforce or defer email encryption policy when users are offline. Administrators can now enforce policy for offline users by controlling what happens to email when the PGP Universal Server cannot be accessed by PGP Desktop Email. Options include blocking outbound messages, sending outbound messages unencrypted or allowing users to follow locally defined policy. A PGP pop-up notification window can optionally be enabled, informing the user that policy could not be executed, and asking if the user would like to send the message unsecured. Any use of this client offline bypass feature is logged to PGP Universal Server.
PGP Whole Disk Encryption 9.9 – More OS and Localized Keyboard Support
Today’s PGP Whole Disk Encryption update extends keyboard support from 5 to 38 keyboard locales and includes the anticipated general availability of PGP Whole Disk Encryption 9.9 for the Mac OS X, with pre-boot authentication. Mac usage in the enterprise is rapidly growing beyond corporate marketing groups to mission-critical areas of the enterprise. Now with PGP Whole Disk Encryption 9.9, enterprises can cost effectively safeguard data and set centrally-defined security policies from a single management console for both Mac and Windows clients, automatically protecting data across platforms whether at rest or in motion.
PGP Whole Disk Encryption 9.9, PGP Whole Disk Encryption 9.9 for the Mac OS X, PGP Desktop Email 9.9 and PGP NetShare 9.9 are all now generally available and can be purchased through the PGP global network of resellers. Pricing for PGP Whole Disk Encryption starts at $119 USD per seat for Windows or Mac; PGP Universal Server 2.9 starts at $169 USD per seat; and PGP NetShare 9.9 starts at $149 USD per seat.
