Comguard, a Dubai-based leading value-added distributor for IT security products, a part of Spectrum group and WinMagic Inc., today announced the launch of SecureDoc Version 6.1 in Middle East region. This new version will bring forward a host of new benefits including the ability to manage all devices via a convenient web based, user friendly interface as well as support across multiple platforms and devices. WinMagic is now in the unique position to be able to offer customers support for desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones from a single management console.
Building on its industry-leading Full-disk encryption offering, WinMagic is pleased to bring forth a whole new set of features and enhancements to SecureDoc 6.1, including the newly launched capability of supporting Apple MAC FileVault2 and Mobile Device Management (MDM) support for iOS and Android devices. In addition, an enhanced Web console has been added to further simplify IT administration, making it easier and more flexible for centralized control and management.
“With the growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) across organizations, WinMagic wanted to ensure we were providing the tools necessary for our customers to effectively and easily manage their security strategy in this new day and age, while at the same time offering feature sets that allow them to decrease the total cost of IT network ownership. WinMagic’s strategy has consistently been to offer our customers simple, scalable and cost efficient solutions and we will continue to do so well into the future,” says George Jason, General Manager Middle East at WinMagic.
SecureDoc 6.1 New Features:
Mobile Device Management (MDM) for iOS and Android Devices: Centralized management to enforce encryption and data security policies. All settings/controls can be accessed and managed through the SecureDoc Enterprise Server (SES) Web Console.
FileVault 2 Support: With one of the leading Mac OS X encryption solutions in the market, WinMagic has taken it a step further, giving customers even more flexibility than before, with the addition of FileVault 2 management.
