PGP has announced the availability of the latest version of its data protection solution.

PGP whole disk encryption desktop version 10.0 will provide support across Ubuntu Linux, Red Hat Linux, Mac and Windows environments and enables client convenience and compliance.

In addition to allowing disk encryption across mixed environments, PGP Desktop for Mac now also supports Boot Camp, so users can have complete protection for machines running dual Mac OS X and Windows environments.

Phillip Dunkelberger, president and CEO of PGP, said: “From our customer base, we've seen the use of Mac and Linux-based operating systems in the enterprise markedly increase in recent years.

“The challenge for many IT departments today has been straddling the desire for the ease-of-use and choice of applications that these platforms provide, with the lack of data protection solutions available. PGP is proud to offer solutions that span operating systems that will encrypt and lock down sensitive data no matter where it resides and no matter where it goes.”
