Any organisation that handles European Union Classified Information (EUCI), can use DISK Protect Baseline to protect classified data

DISK Protect Baseline now certified for use with EU Restricted data, opening up additional new markets for Becrypt

London, UK, 13 June, 2012 - Becrypt, a leading supplier of cyber security solutions to the UK Government, MOD, public sector and industry has gained certification for its DISK Protect Baseline product from the Council of the European Union (EU) for handling information classified as Restricted. Becrypt, a UK company, is the first to achieve certification for a full disk encryption solution. Any organisation that handles European Union Classified Information (EUCI), can use DISK Protect Baseline to protect classified data (up to ‘EU Restricted’), confident that it has achieved this level of assurance from the EU.

Bernard Parsons, CEO of Becrypt said; “We are delighted to be the first company to achieve EU certification for full disk encryption. DISK Protect Baseline has been CESG certified for many years, and it is testament to Becrypt’s commitment to providing innovative, usable yet highly secure products that we have been first to achieve this certification.

“This builds on Becrypt’s ethos of developing highly robust, certified, yet innovative cyber security solutions that are suitable for use at all levels. Over the years we have been approached by many organisations in Europe wishing to use DISK Protect Baseline, but we were unable to supply it as there was no formal certification process. This now opens up many new markets for Becrypt.”

Becrypt supplies a range of award winning, innovative cyber security products designed to protect sensitive information throughout an organisation, on the desktop, at the end point and when in transit or being shared with trusted third parties. Becrypt’s products are approved by CESG for use with all levels of Government data, right up to Impact Level 6 (TOP SECRET).
