PGP Corporation announced a significant expansion of its channel strategy with the launch of the PGP Managed Service Provider Network (MSPN).Ã‚Â PGP Corporation is broadening access of its encryption solutions to mid-market and small businesses through a new worldwide network of managed service providers and existing channel partners that will initially offer the award winning PGP Whole Disk Encryption as a Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription offering.
PGP Whole Disk Encryption provides comprehensive, automatic full disk encryption, enabling quick and cost-effective protection for data on PCs, laptops, and removable media. The encrypted data is transparently safeguarded from unauthorized access, providing strong security for intellectual property, customer and partner data, and corporate brand equity, specifically when mobile devices are lost or stolen.Ã‚Â Through the PGP Managed Service Provider Network SaaS delivery model, mid-market and small customers now have the advantage of having access to the same commercial-grade, enterprise-class encryption security as large organizations without requiring the upfront infrastructure and hardware investments typically required for implementing encryption technology solutions.Ã‚Â
By building out its partner ecosystem with the PGP Managed Service Provider Network, PGP Corporation is expanding its enterprise data protection footprint to new vertical and geographic markets, bringing enterprise-class encryption and manageability to a new category of customers. New and existing PGP channel partners and managed service providers can increase revenue streams by offering PGP Whole Disk Encryption as a managed service with a “pay-as-you-go” business model.Ã‚Â
Initial marquee partners that have joined the PGP Managed Service Provider Network include ANI Direct and Aurora Enterprises in the United States, and Gradian Systems in the United Kingdom, all of which are already delivering PGP Whole Disk Encryption as a SaaS hosted delivery service to their customers with great success.Ã‚Â
