London, UK, 16 April, 2013 - Becrypt, the market leading supplier of cyber security solutions to the UK Central and Local Government, Ministry of Defence, as well as the corporate sector has announced a new collaboration with Samsung. Becrypt has teamed up with technology partner Samsung to provide its DISK Protect full disk encryption solution running on the Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro. This will provide highly secure, Windows 8 touch based Smart PC for joint customers in commercial environments.
The Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro, combining the power of a notebook PC and the convenience of a tablet PC, will now include on-screen, touch friendly pre-boot authentication, enabling users to login/authenticate before the main operating system is booted, avoiding the issue of authenticating after a machine may already be compromised.
Ian Kilpatrick, Chairman of Wick Hill commented; “One of the reasons that Wick Hill was keen to partner as a Value Added Distributor with Becrypt is its continuing innovation and close relationships with hardware manufacturers. This results in a steady stream of new products that ensure our resellers are able to meet the latest security demands of their customers.”
Becrypt DISK Protect is available in several different accredited versions allowing Windows 8 and tablet support up to Impact Level 4 (CONFIDENTIAL). This also includes the latest CESG Commercial Product Assurance (CPA) version which protects information without the use of Government key material, significantly reducing support and cost overheads for public sector organisations and those that require a Government assured solution.
Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro provides computing power with Windows 8 featuring a detachable keyboard-docking system that allows users to easily switch between a clamshell notebook PC and a tablet PC. In addition to an advanced 10-finger multi touch screen, it is equipped with the renowned S-Pen, delivering real writing and drawing experience for maximum productivity. ATIV Smart PC Pro’s powerful Intel® Core™ i5 processor can handle particularly demanding professional use and multimedia consumption.
DISK Protect Windows 8 will continue to provide USB encryption, single sign-on options and it can be managed centrally using Becrypt Enterprise Manager, meaning that it can be deployed to 1000’s of devices (desktops, laptops and tablets) in a matter of hours.
Dr. Bernard Parsons, CEO at Becrypt commented; “Together Samsung and Becrypt are able to offer a great combination of a highly functional Smart PC that supports business requirements with both Windows for the latest business applications and full disk encryption security. This is in a highly desirable Smart PC that staff are keen to use for its convenience and ease of mobility, and can support organisations in their Choose Your Own Device strategies.”
