Avanquest Solutions (www.avanquest-solutions.co.uk) is now an exclusive distributor for ENCRYPTX security software in the United Kingdom.

The addition of ENCRYPTX removable media and drive encryption solutions to Avanquest’s portfolio of software solutions for business – document management, unified communications, network fax and continuous availability - compliments Avanquest’s portfolio, enabling them to deliver total security at every stage of every business process.

ENCRYPTX products directly address the problem of how to secure business critical information that is being shared and used by multiple users, on multiple computers and devices. In addition to automatic and transparent encryption solutions, advanced features in ENCRYPTX products include digital rights management controls that provide continuous protection over sensitive information and provide central management and visibility over protected data and devices.

ENCRYPTX products are proven and have been bundled and shipped by leading drive and device manufacturers including SanDisk Corporation, Imation Corporation, Iomega Corporation, and many others. Over 20 million drives worldwide include ENCRYPTX security solutions for protecting the contents of those drives.

High profile end user organisations that have adopted ENCRYPTX products to secure their data and devices include the London Borough of Hackney, the UK National Weights and Measures Laboratory, the Devon and Cornwall Police Department, Boeing Corporation, Disney, General Dynamics, Computer Sciences Corporation, Science Applications and International Corporation, and IBM Global Services.

“We are extremely pleased with the opportunity to enter into an exclusive distribution relationship with Avanquest Software in the UK” stated David Duncan, President of ENCRYPTX. “Avanquest has one of the most extensive catalogs of business and consumer software products and a large and growing base of specialized resellers.” “We expect that this relationship will significantly expand our sales in the UK and throughout the EU.”

Encryption is vital to data security, but Avanquest believes the ‘first line of defence’ is critical in any battle, beginning with anti-theft security.

During August and September 2008, Avanquest will be giving away complimentary computer locks to customers purchasing encryptX – one PC Guardian lock for each 10 user licence. The patented tamper resistant locks manufactured by PC Guardian have been widely adopted as corporate security standards.
