Mississauga, ON, Canada – June 12, 2012- WinMagic Inc., the innovator in data security and encryption solutions, today announced a strategic agreement with Interwork Technologies Inc. to distribute WinMagic’s SecureDoc Data Encryption and Security software in North America.

With a focus on security solutions and emerging technologies, Interwork was an ideal choice for WinMagic to work with. Interwork is the first distributor selected by WinMagic to distribute its products in North America and as part of the agreement, will begin working with resellers in Canada and then expanding into the United States.

“We’re extremely pleased to be working with Interwork and leverage their reach and expertise to expand our presence in Canada and more broadly across North America,” said Mark Hickman, Senior Vice President of Sales at WinMagic Inc. “Working with a distributor that understands the Information Security market is critical for companies like ours and we look forward to a long a fruitful relationship with Interwork.”

With a partner network of more than 2,000 value added resellers (VARs) and solution providers, Interwork is an ideal distributor for WinMagic to partner with.

“Interwork Technologies is pleased to be partnering with WinMagic, a leader in data encryption solutions. We are committed to introducing innovative, best of breed security solutions that are proven in the marketplace and WinMagic has consistently demonstrated this through their leadership in product research and development,” said Joe Graci, President and General Manager at Interwork Technologies Inc. “We look forward to working with WinMagic to help further expand their channel partner program while increasing our security offerings to our reseller partners.”

In the coming months, WinMagic and Interwork will coordinate and execute a joint go to market strategy to enlist new resellers to resell and deploy SecureDoc for customers throughout Canada. Part of this program will include local campaigns and events for resellers seeking new, innovative data encryption and security solutions to offer their customers.

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.
