POINTSEC also signs agreement with the U.S. Army to protect desktop and
Pointsec Mobile Technologies, Inc, a leading developer of security
control software for PCs, mobile computers, and PDAs, announced today
that a Naval Research program and divisions within the Army will secure
their desktop and mobile computers using Pointsec 4.0, a full disk
encryption product that provides device access control and user
authentication. The order value is initially of a smaller amount, but
the co-operation is strategic for Pointsec.
The Extending the Littoral Battlespace Advanced Concept Technology
Demonstration (ELB ACTD) program, an effort hosted by the Office of
Naval Research, selected Pointsec 4.0 to secure mission-critical data on
mobile computers used by dispersed ground forces who connect wirelessly
to joint forces ashore and at sea. Some of the key product features
that led this Naval research program to choose Pointsec to safeguard
it's information systems include Pointsec's identification and
authorisation features and on-the-fly, transparent hard disk encryption
Pointsec also has entered into an agreement to protect a select number
of distributed PC's for the US Army.
"The need to protect sensitive data and access to networks continues to
rise as governments seek new technologies to secure classified
information residing on distributed devices," said Kurt Lennartsson, co-
founder and vice president of Pointsec Mobile Technologies, Inc.
"Pointsec has been working with government agencies both here and in
Europe for quite some time. The addition of the U.S. Navy and Army as
customers demonstrates the increasing high level of trust the federal
government has in Pointsec."
Pointsec 4.0 provides complete device access control by encrypting the
operating system, all drives and resident data, including deleted files
and unused space on PCs and laptops, ensuring only authorised users can
access the device, resident information and connections into Networks
and Intranets. Unlike competing products, Pointsec simplifies security
procedures for users by offering a single product that provides a one-
step login onto multiple operating systems and multiple networks, as
well as PKI software-secured applications. Pointsec is Novell
certified, and can be deployed on both Microsoft and Novell networks.
