WinMagic & CMS Products Offer DiskVault with SecureDoc

 

Agreement will give CMS customers added security with FDE for their PC to compliment security of DiskVault SEDs

Mississauga, ON, Canada – August 7, 2012 - WinMagic Inc., the innovator in data security and encryption solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with CMS Products Inc. whereby CMS will offer its DataVault Self Encrypting Drive (SED) and BouncBack Ultimate Back-up as part of a bundled solution with SecureDoc data encryption and security software.

A leader in data back-up, encryption and security, the partnership with WinMagic offers an excellent compliment to CMS’ external SED offerings and customers seeking a complete data security solution. This co-branded offering, CE Secure PC Guardian, will include a CMS external USB 3 DiskVault OPAL standard Self Encrypting Hard Drive, BounceBack Ultimate Backup software and WinMagic’s SecureDoc Standalone software for desktops and laptops. This combination will enable users to encrypt their host PC, control the USB-connected SED and authenticate to the SED when connected to an unmanaged PC as well as do back-up.

“We’re excited for the potential of this partnership opportunity with CMS and what it means for their customers,” said Mark Hickman, World Wide Vice President of Sales at WinMagic Inc. “As key supporter of TCG’s OPAL standard for SEDs, the ability to work with a strong SED player such as CMS means we can offer customers the best combination of software-based and hardware-based encryption available in market today.”

With a goal of offering end users a consistent, hassle-free solution, CMS believes this bundle will offer customers a leading-edge, affordable and secure external storage option.

“Having regularly worked with WinMagic over the past few years, we’re pleased to be able to take that relationship to a new level not only for us but for our combined customer base,” said Ken Burke, President at CMS Products Inc. “The CE Secure PC Guardian brings two best-of-breed products together that offer unparalleled data security for our customers.”

The CE Secure PC Guaridan solution bundle offers an OPAL compliant external USB 3.0 hardware encrypted hard disk solution. Weighing only seven ounces, the CE-Secure DiskVault is bus powered for easy transportability. The CE Secure DiskVault is ready to use right from the box. Since the entire disk is protected with AES 128/256-bit encryption, users can be confident that all data on the CE-Secure DiskVault is safe and can be accessed only by its rightful owner.

Also included is BounceBack Ultimate, the world’s easiest to use backup software with instant recovery. When users create a backup, BounceBack copies the entire system disk to the backup drive, not just data as most other applications do. Having the entire system means that users can instantly recover from a disaster just by starting their PC from the backup drive.

SecureDoc is a comprehensive disk encryption and data security product that secures data at rest. It has two main components: the client software used to encrypt and protect data and the server software (SecureDoc Enterprise Server or SES) used to configure, deploy, and manage encryption for an entire organization.

Armed with a full arsenal of data protection solutions, SecureDoc provides: full disk encryption; file and folder encryption; removable media and removable media container encryption; departmental server encryption; centralized management; Active Directory and LDAP integration, and much more. SecureDoc also makes it easy to centrally manage and use standard drives and self-encrypting drives including TCG OPAL-compliant drives.

SecureDoc uses a FIPS 140-2 level 1 and level 2 certified AES 256-bit cryptographic engine to encrypt data. SecureDoc was the first product in market to introduce network-based pre-boot authentication. This technology, PBConnex, has been recognized throughout the industry as a market leading security solution significantly reducing the total cost of ownership of data encryption. Most recently, WinMagic was awarded Security Magazine’s Innovator of the Year Award in 2011 for SecureDoc and the groundbreaking functionality PBConnex offers.

WinMagic’s SecureDoc data encryption and security solution protects sensitive data stored on desktops, servers as well as portable media such as laptops and removable media including USB thumb drives and CD/DVDs. It is compatible with all editions of Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000 as well as Mac OS X Lion, Snow Leopard, Leopard and Linux platforms.

Leveraging CMS’ worldwide distribution network the CE Secure PC Guardian will be available globally starting in August. More information can be found here: http://www.cmsproducts.com/products/336-ce-secure-pc-guardian.aspx
