PGP expands Mac support
PGP today released new versions of its PGP Whole Disk Encryption as well as PGP Desktop Home software for Mac OS X. PGP Whole Disk Encryption provides non-stop disk encryption for quick, cost-effective data protection. The update is the first official support for Mac OS X, but is limited to non-startup volumes. PGP Desktop Personal is an easy-to-use desktop encryption application that secures confidential data with automatic email encryption, as well as the ability to lock down files in automatically expanding virtual drives or shared archives. The update brings native support to Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary. PHP Whole Disk Encryption and PGP Desktop software require Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and run natively as Universal Binaries on Intel-based Macs as well as PowerPC-based systems (pricing was unavailable).
