Endpoint data protection firm Credant Technologies has launched a new encryption solution for Mac users, designed to offer improved usability and transparency.
Credant Mobile Guardian Enterprise Edition includes full disk encryption for all Mac OS X environments, including v10.4 Tiger and v10.5 Leopard systems, offering the same level of protection that Credant provides for Windows workstations, handheld devices and removable media.
The software is easy to deploy, offers improved reporting capabilities and enables iPhone users to synchronise with exchange servers securely, said the firm.
"We have seen a dramatic rise in the number of Macs in corporate environments creating real challenges for enterprises to manage and secure their data," said Credant chief technology officer and co-founder Chris Burchett.
"Adding Mac support to the same central management console as used for all other endpoint devices enables our customers to close an important data protection gap, and satisfy the compliance regulations that drive such urgency for data security solutions."
The new offering also features integration with native Mac OS X authentication interfaces, and is compatible with virtualisation systems such as Parallels and VMware.
