Why Apple Matters in The Enterprise

It’s always interesting to get into the Mac vs. Windows debate as it relates to the Enterprise. For the longest time, the corporate IT stack was predominately Windows-based, but not any more. With the introduction of the iPhone and iPad, Apple has seen its reach within the enterprise slowly grow over the past few years. 

It Really Can Be That Easy – Single Pane of Glass

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I used to run a small encryption team at a large organization before I came to work for WinMagic. One of the key responsibilities we had was to generate FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act) compliance reports for NIST SP 800-53, AC-3 and SC-13 controls. What does that mean? Essentially, these are reports that ensure key security standard requirements are met within the organization for Government regulatory purposes.

Plotting world domination

Last week was a busy week for us WinMagic folks. As we’ve entered the new fiscal year for the company, so began our annual Sales & Marketing Kick-off event for our FY’13. It’s the event where the key customer and partner-facing teams get together and plot world domination of the data encryption and security market.

The Need for Speed

Is software encryption on a notebook with a Solid State Drive (SSD) a non-starter due to performance concerns?

This is a good question and I have heard it asked by some pretty smart people recently.

Introducing SecureDoc 6.1

In today’s world, Bring Your Own Device or BYOD has quickly become a reality that organizations have come to expect.  With over 76 per cent of employees using multiple devices, many of which are now owned by the individual not the organization, companies need to ensure that their corporate data is well protected.  The solution for this issue is SecureDoc 6.1. Data Encryption from WinMagic.

It’s a BYOD World Embrace It or Expire.

There is a great debate raging in the security industry today on how to best provide secure corporate data in a BYOD world. The consumerization of IT and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) are becoming prevalent in organizations at lightning speed, both with and without the knowledge of corporate IT departments.

When virtual environments get too heavy

When Virtual Environments Get Too Heavy

As an encryption security vendor that is working its way into Mobile Device Management (MDM), I’m fascinated and constantly looking at new ways to secure mobile devices and company information. As someone with a background in virtualized environments, I’m even more intrigued when companies like VMWare introduce solutions.

The importance of partners

Go to market strategies for vendors varies in approach whether it’s entirely direct, indirect or an amalgamation of both. WinMagic adheres to a hybrid approach that best matching the requirements of the customer or business practices within a given region.
