McAfee Endpoint Encryption software delivers powerful encryption and pre-boot authentication features that prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data and stop information loss and exposure. Data assets are continuously protected no matter where they are - on individual PCs, roaming laptops and mobile devices, or shared network files and folders.
Bull Evidian Enterprise SSO delivers single sign-on, strong authentication management and centralized access log for enterprise applications. It allows organizations to enforce their access policy from their user's desktop, granting application access on a role-based basis.
"The integration with the McAfee Endpoint Encryption software will provide our customers with an integrated solution that secures information access right from boot time, without burdening users with multiple passwords" said Hassan Maad, Bull Evidian Chief Operating Officer. "Through the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance, we will leverage the strengths of McAfee-based technology to deliver a more complete solution to our mutual customers".
