Hertfordshire, United Kingdom – December 16, 2014 - Motion Computing®, a leading provider of rugged mobile solutions for vertical markets and WinMagic® Inc., the global innovator in data security today announced a partnership that will see WinMagic’s SecureDoc™ data encryption and security software pre-installed on Motion’s R12, F5, C5 and CL920 tablet PCs.
Motion’s products will include SecureDoc embedded on the device offering Full Volume Encryption (FVE), touch-enabled pre-boot authentication, self-help password recovery, Windows® 8.1 encrypted Refresh and Reset, and more. Customers that need more than just standalone encryption on their devices will be able to upgrade to the full SecureDoc product suite, offering full centralised management capabilities.
Reports such as the PriceWaterhouseCoopers Information Security Breaches Survey suggest that whilst the level of threat to business has remained roughly the same, the cost of breaches and data loss has dramatically increased. 9% of large organisations suffered a breach involving a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet in 2014. Perhaps most worryingly, 10% of the worst security breaches were via portable devices (such as tablet PCs) that had bypassed first-line defences - up from just 4% the year before.
“As we continue to see trends such as BYOD and the consumerisation of IT impact the way business gets done, it’s important that remote and mobile workers are equipped with the kind of technology that enhances productivity without compromising the level of security,” said Darin Welfare, Vice President and General Manager, EMEA at WinMagic Inc. “WinMagic’s global partnership with a leading mobile device manufacturer such as Motion Computing will ensure that data encryption is no longer an afterthought for the mobile workforce, but rather an additional, built-in security measure.”
“Complying with the newest UK-mandated laws and regulations, Motion Computing will continue to offer our customers fully-secured mobile products,” said Ian Davies, Country Manager, Northern Europe at Motion Computing. “With the support of the local WinMagic team, we can confidently convey to our UK-based customers that their data is safe and empowers their mobile workforce.
“We see a substantial market opportunity here. At present only around a third of UK businesses encrypt their data on smartphones or tablets. Facing complex and growing threats, businesses will adopt encryption increasingly throughout 2015 and that number will only go up. This partnership puts Motion in a great place to capitalise on this opportunity.”
