Pointsec seals Swedish contract

Pointsec Mobile Technologies, the Newmarket based global leader and provider of the de facto standard for enterprise security software for laptop and desktop PCs, PDAs and smartphones, has won a contract with the Swedish Defense Material Administration (FMV) for an unspecified amount.Pointsec Mobile Technologies, the Newmarket based global leader and provider of the de facto standard for enterprise security software for laptop and desktop PCs, PDAs and smartphones, has won a contract with the Swedish Defense Material Administration (FMV) for an unspecified amount.

Pointsec will initially supply 5,000 user licenses for its Pointsec for PC endpoint security solution to the Swedish Armed Forces, with an option for an additional 5,000 licenses in the future.

The order will be delivered and booked in the second quarter of 2006.

FMV has managed the procurement for a data protection solution on behalf of the Swedish Armed Forces, which has recognised an increasing use of laptop PCs throughout its organisation.

The initiative for data protection has been called upon by the requirement for laptop users to work outside protected environments, while travelling and from home, paired with the concern for losing sensitive and classified information if a laptop is lost or stolen.

Pointsec enables real-time strong encryption of all or selected parts of a hard disk drive, making data accessible to authenticated users only.

The Swedish Armed Forces will use Pointsec’s data protection solution together with its current smartcard-based user identification system.
