PGP today announced PGP Universal 2.0 as well as the client component PGP Desktop 9.0. The package offers automated and central policy management in addition to expanded enterprise management features, according to an announcement.
The new PGP Desktop 9.0 features automatic operation so email, instant messaging (IM), whole disk, and file encryption are secure without user interaction or training, PGP said. New encryption features include “Whole Disk” that allows users to encrypt entire harddrives, a new PGP directory service and an updated command line-based PGP tool. (THG)
