Pointsec offers mobile security as an Internet managed service

Pointsec Mobile Technologies, the global leader and the provider of the de facto standard for enterprise security software for laptop and desktop PCs, PDAs and smartphones, has today become the first mobile security provider (and market leader) to offer full disk encryption on all laptop devices as an Internet managed service through their partner Alertsec.

This easy, convenient and reliable way of deploying the software over the web is ideal for small to medium sized businesses, who can instantly secure information carried around on their staff’s laptops, within minutes from ordering the software, radically simplifying any implementation. The objective is to cut the costly and time consuming evaluation and configuration period providing a “ready-to-deploy” enterprise level product that is proven, well used and stable at an affordable monthly rate.

This new managed service is ideal for any organisation who needs to secure their laptops, but do not want to dedicate IT resources to manage passwords or install and configure software on their own servers. It takes the mystery out of encryption, allowing organisations to get on with more business focused projects.

The managed, subscription based service will provide users with a 24/7 telephone help desk which will reset passwords for users who forget them, making it ideal for organisations that cannot be available for their users at all times over several time zones.

Pointsec is actively and rapidly looking for partners across Europe to expand their latest managed service for small and medium sized companies.
