Opinion & Resources
Symantec already have some strong encryption solutions and have cemented this position with the purchase of PGP. The vision with these solutions to provide complete and flexible end to end encryption, be it on hard drives, removable media, email or data at rest in the corporate LAN. As well as excellent encryption, PGP also additionally helps with the associated headache of key management. The universal server as its name suggests, is a single management platform for the administration, control and support of the encryption keys across the product range.
This all bodes well for the organisation that may want a simple encryption solution for laptops now for instance, but in time may wish to scale to a complete Data Loss Prevention (DLP) style strategy.
