ENGLAND: Becrypt has announced a deepening of its technology partnership with Panasonic to provide its DISK Protect CPA (Commercial Product Assurance) tablet encryption solution on the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 computer.
An ultra-light and fully rugged Microsoft Windows 8 tablet designed for use in any weather or environment, the Toughpad FZ-G1 is now also able to handle sensitive data up to Impact Level 4 thanks to the Becrypt technology.
Becrypt DISK Protect CPA for Microsoft Windows 8, which is suitable for use by UK Government and Ministry of Defence users, features unique on-screen, pre-boot keyboard support. This enables users to login/authenticate, without the use of an external keyboard, before the main operating system is booted, avoiding the issue of authenticating after a machine may already be compromised.
DISK Protect CPA is approved by CESG to protect sensitive 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.
FZ-G1 customers utilising DISK Protect CPA can be deployed and protected within minutes using Becrypt Enterprise Manager, as the solution can be installed remotely without any requirement to visit the machine. Tablets running DISK Protect CPA will also benefit from USB encryption and single sign-on options.
