Florida Gets Serious With Data Privacy

July 1st was a big day in Florida if you’re a follower of info security news. That was the day Florida’s new Florida Information Protection Act (FIPA) came into effect and had immediate consequences for anyone that does business in Florida, has employees there or has customers that reside there.

Security Enlightenment at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

At the end of June, WinMagic had the opportunity to attend Gartner’s 2014 Security & Risk Management Summit. After many sessions, meetings and cocktail receptions, we walked away a little wiser and informed. Over the next few weeks I’ll delve into some of the sessions we attended, and share some stuff we learned from them. But for this blog post, I thought it would be good to share some key highlights/data that we took in from the event.

Keeping up with Healthcare

We’ve been busy lately on the news front and doing our part to contribute to security discussions going on in the Healthcare space. One of the hottest topics we’ve been addressing recently is the affect bring your own device (BYOD) is having on healthcare. 

Bad Habits Coming to Work?

Last week at RSA Conference 2014 we announced the results of a Harris Poll survey we commissioned. It was an interesting process and the data it revealed was not altogether surprising, but the main conclusion one draws from it is frightening for IT professionals.

Revisiting the TPM

TPMs have been shipping for nearly 8 years now.  WinMagic was an early adopter and supported TPM version 1.1 for full disk encryption before most.  We expanded our support to the more main stream version 1.2 TPMs when they started shipping.  Now more than 100 Million TPMs are out there in laptops and other devices, and soon many, many  Version 2.0 TPMs will join them.  TPM 2.0 and disk encryption will be a good topic for a future blog but today I am going to set the ground work on where we are today.

Busy Growing

WinMagic is a global organization that’s seeing a lot of success in market today. With success comes growth and we continue to see strong market demand in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and India. We’ve had solid presence in these markets but have upped the ante this fiscal year.
