Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
Aurora, a leading IT company specializing in state-of-the-art security and compliance solutions for business critical applications, has become an Enterprise Service Provider (ExSP) for Symantec, a global leader in security, storage and systems management solutions.
“Symantec has authorized us, following an extensive qualification process, to provide laptop and removable media encryption as an authorized software as a service provider,” said Aurora CEO Philip de Souza.
“Having already achieved this status with PGP prior to their acquisition by Symantec, we are excited that we were able to meet Symantec’s ExSP requirements, and at the potential Symantec brings to the table. We are able to leverage the Symantec brand strength along with PGP’s technology leadership in the encryption space, to provide our customers with an easy to use encryption and compliance solution,” de Souza said.
Aurora is just one of two authorized providers of this encryption service in the United States. Aurora has been providing this service to the SME (Small Medium Enterprises) and large enterprises for over three years.
“Our clients can be assured of always having access to the latest Symantec software versions available,” de Souza said. “They can continue using the technologies they have already leveraged, and Aurora will take care of all of their key management, logging, reporting and compliance requirements, that are all included as part of this service offering. It’s the ultimate combination of convenience and cutting edge technology.”
Some of the most often cited benefits of the Whole Disk SaaS offering are: No equipment purchases necessary, low monthly costs, almost immediate deployment, no consulting costs and low management overhead.
