PGP Corporation, has announced PGP Desktop 9.0.1 and PGP Universal 2.0.1 products with full support for Apple Computer's Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" operating system, German localization, and internationalization for different character sets and encodings.
PGP Desktop 9.0 is a five-in-one security solution including PGP Virtual Disk encryption (files, folders), PGP Mail (automatic and transparent using PGP Universal technology), PGP Instant Messenger (securing AOL Instant Messenger traffic), PGP Zip (file compression), and PGP Shred (permanent file deletion). In addition, PGP Desktop 9.0 automatically posts new user keys to the PGP Global Directory, a service hosted by PGP Corporation that gives PGP users a trusted, validated, and automatic way to share and retrieve public keys.
"Support for Mac OS X innovations is an important PGP priority," said Doug McLean, vice president products for PGP Corporation. "With PGP Desktop 9.0.1, Tiger users can simply and automatically protect their confidential information and personal privacy by encrypting email, files, disks, and instant messaging sessions. Larger organizations can add PGP Universal to centrally manage PGP Desktop 9.0.1 users, including centralized key management and policy enforcement. With Tiger support, PGP products offer a full suite of security solutions to users of the major desktop and email platforms."
PGP Corporation also announced that new versions have been re-architected to support language localization. PGP Desktop 9.0.1 is now available in German. PGP Universal 2.0.1 internal processes are fully double-byte character-enabled, allowing organizations to communicate seamlessly with business partners worldwide and customize end-user messages, as desired. Additional language support, especially Japanese, will be available in future releases.
