Utimaco to Participate in United States Government Full-Disk Encryption Evaluation.

Mandate requiring encryption of all data on mobile computers and devices drives review of data security solutions

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Utimaco, The Data Security Company, today announced its participation in the United States Government's review of full-disk encryptions solutions. The review of solutions providers was sparked by the June 23, 2006 mandate from the Executive Office of the President requiring the full encryption of data on all government mobile computers and devices.

"The U.S. government is aided by the speed, efficiency and flexibility of mobile computing, however, the sensitive nature of the data housed on government mobile computers and devices requires the highest level of security and encryption," stated Craig F. Bumpus, General Manager, Utimaco Americas. "The recent Presidential mandate and resulting full-disk encryption evaluation are significant steps toward locking down our nation's classified data. We welcome the opportunity to participate in this sweeping technology review and look forward to assisting the Government with this important security initiative."

Partnering with Utimaco in the response to the Government's request for proposals is Onix Networking, a leading provider of IT solutions and services.

"Onix Networking has worked with a wide-range of technology providers to deliver custom IT solutions to federal and local agencies," stated Dal VanDervort, director, Federal Sales, Onix Networking. "Since the unveiling of the full-disk encryption request for proposals, we have been working with Utimaco to meet government requirements and deadlines. Most recently, Onix Networking attended the Data at Rest Encryption industry day held by the DoD DARTT (Data at Rest Tiger Team) in Reston, Va. on December 20, 2006. We look forward to continuing this process and representing Utimaco's encryption solutions."
