CREDANT Technologies' CREDANT Mobile Guardian Ranked 'Hot Pick' by Information Security Magazine

Reviewer calls CREDANT offering 'a robust endpoint security solution that can meet the demands of large and small enterprises'

DALLAS, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- CREDANT Technologies(R), the market leader in endpoint data protection solutions, today announced that CREDANT Mobile Guardian (CMG) 6.0, its flagship offering for securing data on endpoints, including laptops, mobile phones and USB thumbdrives, was named a "Hot Pick" by reviewers at Information Security magazine in the June 2008 issue.

CREDANT's received high marks across the board in all categories. Its policy control capabilities received "A" grades, as did its logging and reporting functions and encryption.

"We are pleased with the results of this review, which correspond directly to the critical needs of enterprise users, including finding a central way to manage the encryption on the multitude of devices in the workplace today," said Sheila Droski, Director, Product Marketing, CREDANT Technologies. "CREDANT helps by securing the data no matter where it resides, and helps enterprises prove that data is secure through extensive auditing and reporting, if ever a laptop or smartphone is lost or stolen."

The Information Security reviewer ranked CREDANT Mobile Guardian's management console highly, for giving IT administrators a view and insight into what's happening on devices throughout the network. Of CREDANT's encryption capabilities, the reviewer noted, "By far the strongest feature of CMG is encryption -- your choice of AES 128 or 256, Blowfish and Triple DES." The reviewer designated automatic encryption data in a variety of mobile device and workstation scenarios, and found that all were transparent to the end user -- a major need if a business hopes to drive user adoption of endpoint data protection.

The lab tested Mobile Guardian on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Active Directory and managed a variety of devices, including workstations, mobile phones/PDAs with wireless network connectivity, and portable media such as flash drives and SD cards to reach the results.

With version 6.0 of CREDANT Mobile Guardian, CREDANT introduced Full Data Encryption2, based on its Intelligent Encryption, which allows administrators to designate different layers of encryption based upon user data, application data, system files and external media, even securing the operating system, except for the files needed to boot the machine.
