Share Article

In a shoot-out between disk encryption solutions, Federal Computer Week, the No. 1 IT publication for state and US government, gave PC Guardian Technologies' Encryption Plus Hard Disk 7.1.0 the highest marks. The reasons: Encryption Plus Hard Disk is the easiest to set up and use and offers IT administrators multiple configuration and deployment options.

PC Guardian Technologies Inc. (http://www.pcguardiantechnologies.com), the leading US provider of encryption solutions for enterprise data security and compliance, today announced that its full-hard-drive disk encryption program -- Encryption Plus Hard Disk 7.1.0 -- earned the highest marks in a side-by-side product review in the January 24, 2005, edition of Federal Computer Week (FCW). FCW is the No.1 government IT publication in the U.S. and is circulated to more than 93,000 readers nationwide.

“In this comparison, we found that EP Hard Disk has a slight edge because of its support for variable speed initial encryption, centralized administration and varied types of deployment options,” wrote the reviewer.

Encryption Plus Hard Disk is the mobile data protection standard for hundreds of enterprises in the defense/aerospace, banking, healthcare and other industries, including Lockheed Martin, Lincoln Financial and Humana Inc.

Encryption Plus Hard Disk encrypts every sector of a computer’s hard drive, transparently and automatically decrypting and re-encrypting data files on the fly as needed.
