The focus of the new deal will be the delivery of integrated endpoint encryption solutions for the Seagate Momentus FDE hard drives.
As it follows, WinMagic's SecureDoc data protection software becomes integrated with Seagate's Momentus 7200 FDE drives.
Up till now, the HDD line only featured Seagate Secure technology. With WinMagic's SecureDoc now part of the pack as well, Seagate promises to present its users with “ an enterprise-class solution [...] SecureDoc provides enterprise manageability, audit trails/reporting, removable media encryption, key management and multi-factor authentication to enhance and complement the power of the Seagate Momentus FDE hard drives.”
"The deployment of laptop encryption across an enterprise or government organization can present many challenges," said Michel Nerrant a VP at WinMagic. "Integration with the Seagate Secure platform and drives like Momentus enables organizations to accelerate deployments in a consistent and predictable manner. SecureDoc already provides a highly secure and powerful solution for the protection of data-at-rest, and together with Seagate, we make it even easier for organizations to protect their data."
At present time, WinMagic claims to support over three million SecureDoc users in 43 countries.
