Thousands of individuals throughout the world use Software AG technology on mission-critical systems, so protecting confidential customer data is obviously essential. Software AG wanted to find an information security solution to protect private information stored on laptops and contained in e-mails.

For the software vendor, the solution was to introduce hard disk encryption for all corporate laptops, something that would complement their existing e-mail security system. The company deployed PGP Desktop E-mail and PGP Whole Disk Encryption to meet their security challenges.

One of the benefits of the new security solution is that it can be centrally managed with the PGP Universal Server instead of several individual products. The ability to manage multiple security applications has saved the software vendor time and money. The PGP security solution also provides secure access for Software AG, which ensures data can be retrieved and/or decrypted in the event that an employee forgets a password or leaves the company suddenly. Other favorable results Software AG has observed after rolling out the PGP solution include a high acceptance rate among staff, the fact that encryption is simple and the user can continue working during the process, and the fact that Software AG has been able to expand its user base since deploying the PGP solutions.
