BeCrypt solutions selected for additional encryption assurance

Logica, one of Europe’s leading IT and business services companies, today announces that it has selected BeCrypt’s encryption solutions to securely manage a range of devices at different levels of encryption and protection. Logica routinely evaluates best-of-breed security solutions and has been using encryption itself for some time. However, in light of today’s growing security threat and in response to Government guidelines Logica is now focussing on Full Disk Encryption products.

Logica has purchased and rolled out almost 2000 licences from BeCrypt for its computers which handle highly sensitive data. These licences include the CAPS approved DISK ProtectTM Baseline (for protectively marked data), DISK Protect StandardTM (for greater flexibility), and the BeCrypt Trusted ClientTM solution for mobile working launched in January 2008.

Commenting on the announcement, Richard Brooks, Sales Director EMEA for BeCrypt said: “Logica has a formidable reputation for security, not only from a technical perspective, but also for evaluating security products, managing secure implementations, and security procedures. Logica will be one of the first organisations to implement BeCrypt Trusted Client, to provide innovative, secure mobile working for their staff.”

Gavin Kenny, Head of Logica’s Security Practice said: “Organisations are not only having to address their own security measures, but also must consider those of their suppliers. Our security practice, one of the largest in Europe, regularly evaluates security solutions for our clients and internal use. We feel that with the increasing mobility of today’s workforce and the increasing size of storage devices it is important to use full disk encryption routinely. The BeCrypt solution meets our needs combining flexibility, ease of management and rollout with rigorous data protection.”
