Credant Technologies, the market leader in endpoint data protection solutions, will provide Dell with encryption and data protection for its commercial client systems. Beginning today, Dell customers may select the Credant Mobile Guardian Dell Edition security encryption solution factory installed on Dell Precision workstations, Latitude laptops and OptiPlex desktops, along with other Credant solutions through Dell's Software and Peripheral (S&P) store with commercial laptop and desktop computer purchases.

Bob Heard, CEO of Credant Technologies, said "We are delighted that Dell, one of the leading computer companies in the world, has selected Credant as a data protection and compliance supplier. It is inspiring that Dell recognizes the importance of data security and therefore empowers its business customers with intelligent encryption technology that will help protect their data from loss or breaches, and meet their compliance obligations, from the day they purchase a new PC."

Credant also announced the launch of Credant FDE DriveManager, which allows customers to manage self-encrypting hard drives shipped by Dell on Latitude PCs. These solutions offer customers complete flexibility in deciding which hardware and software solutions best meet their needs, safe in the knowledge that all of their data can be protected.

Credant has been providing encryption and data protection through Dell's S&P organization since 2009. Dell customers can purchase additional Credant data encryption software and solutions to protect the data at rest on legacy PC's, 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," said Steve Lalla, VP and GM, Commercial Client Product Group, Dell. "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 the only 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.

Heard concluded, "We are committed to delivering endpoint data protection that enables business processes to continue unhindered. By working with Dell we are delighted that its customers can utilize our technology to ensure the data on their endpoint devices is adequately protected."
