WinMagic Experiences Record Fiscal Year in 2013 by Making it Easy to Secure Data

Company Grows 20 percent year over year based on new alliances and strong demand for encryption expertise.

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, CANADA – January 14, 2013 - WinMagic Inc., the global innovator in disk encryption, today announced its largest revenue growth globally for its fiscal year 2013. New strategic alliances and collaborations with leading Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) manufacturers were two of the many factors propelling the Company to a 20 percent revenue increase for fiscal year 2013 (ended October 31) when compared to fiscal year 2012.

WinMagic’s success followed strong customer demand for the Company’s solution, SecureDoc, which ensures the security of data at rest by managing how it’s encrypted. SecureDoc’s unique pre-boot functionality, PBConnex, delivers significant cost and time savings to IT pros, while making the solution more secure than the competition. SecureDoc ensures data security even as IT environments change, including transitions to BYOD (bring your own device) and cloud computing.

Several industry developments are evidence of WinMagic’s leadership role in data security:

  • In May, Hewlett-Packard selected WinMagic to be its exclusive provider of full disk encryption technologies as part of HP Client Security, meaning that SecureDoc powers HP Drive Encryption and is pre-installed on all HP commercial notebooks and desktops.
  • Through its ongoing go-to-market relationship with Lenovo and continued integration with SecureDoc, more and more organizations globally are benefiting from the deep software/hardware integration with Lenovo desktops and laptops. This joint selling motion with Lenovo continues to net out strong success.
  • WinMagic is working closely with leading self-encrypting drive manufacturers to better manage SEDs while highlighting their value and cost savings.
  • Gartner positioned WinMagic as a Visionary in the 2013 Mobile Data Protection Magic Quadrant.

“WinMagic is trusted by the largest healthcare, financial, education, retail, manufacturing and government organizations worldwide, all of whom face the potential for significant reputational damage if they cannot ensure the security of their data," said Thi Nguyen-Huu, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of WinMagic. "We are looking forward to further positioning the Company as a global security leader and innovator and continuing our momentum as we enter 2014 with new cloud security-focused enhancements to our flagship product, SecureDoc.”
