Endpoint data protection provider Credant Technologies this week launched a new enterprise solution for Mac users.
Credant Mobile Guardian Enterprise Edition offers improved transparency and usability whilst giving the same level of protection that Credant provides for Windows-based workstations and mobile devices.
Features include full disk encryption for all Mac OS X environments, including v10.4 Tiger and v10.5 Leopard, and management and compliance reporting capabilities.
IT administrators can secure data across all Mac OS drives while maintaining transparency with existing enterprise applications and IT operations, including data backup and patch management.
In addition, iPhone users can use the software to synchronise securely with exchange servers.
“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 Chris Burchett, Credant chief technology officer and co-founder.
“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.”
