“With today’s global workforce becoming increasingly mobile, SecureDoc is uniquely positioned to make it simple for organizations in the DACH region to integrate full-disk encryption within a complete security solution to fully protect data on desktops, laptops and removable media,” said Tomé Spasov, Managing Director, ectacom GmbH. “Our customers demand for a versatile and highly-secure encryption solution has increased dramatically over the last year, and we are very excited about sharing SecureDoc’s unique encryption features with our reseller base,” continued Spasov. “As always, ectacom will provide the value adds and unmatched pre- and post-sales support required to ensure our resellers can best utilize this unique encryption solution to expand their businesses.”

“As a leading DACH region value added distributor, ectacom is ideally qualified to join WinMagic’s rapidly-expanding channel program,” said Thi Nguyen-Huu, CEO, WinMagic Inc. “WinMagic is committed to a rapid channel expansion program in EMEA, and ectacom has the IT expertise, local market knowledge and dedication required to further drive WinMagic’s rapid European growth,” Nguyen-Huu continued. “Given ectacom’s strong practices in business continuity, IT risk management, and data security, this relationship will ensure resellers in the DACH region receive the best possible local product training and resources to enable them to maximize SecureDoc sales opportunities.”

WinMagic’s SecureDoc makes it simple for organizations to centrally deploy enterprise-class ’always-on’ full-disk encryption. Compatible with all editions of Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000 as well as Mac and Linux platforms, SecureDoc protects all data stored on servers, desktops, laptops and removable media, such as USB thumb drives.

SecureDoc also supports and manages hardware-encrypted disk drives such as the Seagate Momentus FDE and BlackArmor drives as well as the TCG “Opal” specification drives. This provides organizations with the flexibility to deploy any combination of hardware/software-based encryption – or transition between the two – with full transparency for users and a consistent management interface for administrators. This not only makes it easy to customize data protection to meet any security protocol, but also future-proofs investment in encryption.
