WinMagic, an award-winning encryption and key management solution provider, announces today that it has recently delivered the first known enterprise-class managed full drive encryption solution for Linux. The new capability empowers the company to assist enterprises struggling with managing encryption of their Linux-based devices.
Linux users are commonly the most technical users in an organization and rely on the platform for its flexibility and robustness to deliver an enterprise’s workloads. This includes a reliance on Linux’s built-in tools – dm-crypt, crypt setup, and Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS) -to encrypt their devices and manage their encryption keys. While Linux’s encryption toolkit is the best at encrypting Linux-based devices, the operating system can further benefit from the encryption management solutions provided by Independent Software Vendors (ISV), like WinMagic, to manage and unify encryption efforts across an enterprise.
