Credant Technologies to Supply Encryption and Data Protection for Dell Products

Dell selects the endpoint data protection provider for its commercial client systems.

Endpoint data protection solutions provider Credant Technologies has been tabbed by Dell to supply encryption and data protection for its commercial client systems. Credant has been providing encryption and data protection through Dell’s S&P organization since 2009.

Dell customers may select the Credant Mobile Guardian Dell Edition security encryption solution factory installed on Dell Precision workstations, Latitude laptops and OptiPlex desktops. They may also select other Credant solutions through Dell’s Software and Peripheral (S&P) store with commercial laptop and desktop computer purchases.†

According to Credant Technologies CEO Bob Heard, his company is”delighted” to have been chosen by Dell to supply data protection and compliance solutions. “It is inspiring that Dell recognizes the importance of data security,” says Heard.

In addition to its new partnership with Dell, Credant announced last month the launch of its new FDE DriveManager.

FDE DriveManager enables customer to manage self–encrypting hard drives shipped by Dell on Latitude PCs. These solutions offer customers flexibility in deciding which hardware and software solutions best meet their needs.

Dell customers can purchase additional Credant data encryption software and solutions to protect the data at rest on legacy PCs, helping them meet their data compliance needs.

“Data protection is a concern that is top-of-mind for the customers we talk to on a daily basis,” explains Steve Lalla, Dell’s vice president and GM, commercial client product group. “The Credant Mobile Guardian Dell Edition solution meets that critical need and provides compliance-ready data encryption with minimal impact on operational processes and the user experience. This allows customers to focus on their core business and end users to get more done.”

CREDANT Mobile Guardian is a centrally managed endpoint data protection solution available providing strong authentication, intelligent encryption, usage controls, and key management for data recovery. By aligning security to the type of user, device, and location, CREDANT permits the audit and enforcement of security policies across all computing endpoints.
