HIGH WYCOMBE, U.K. -- Pointsec Mobile Technologies, the global leader and the provider of the de facto standard for enterprise security software for laptop and desktop PCs, PDAs and smartphones, today announced the newest release of its flagship product, Pointsec(r) for PC version 6.0, with a new access control architecture built for increasingly standardized authentication factors such as smart cards and tokens. Pointsec also announced today the availability of the industry's first Software Development Kit (SDK) designed to streamline the integration process of access control and endpoint encryption. The combined solution offers the highest level of security at a lower cost of ownership by providing customers the ability to select a second authentication factor that best meets their business and technical needs, without the expense of proprietary integration and support.

Pointsec's new access control architecture, the Multi-Factor Authentication Engine, is designed to meet a growing industry need to simplify access control for users, reduce the cost structure of managing access to information stored on endpoint equipment, and provide higher levels of security to block accidental or malicious loss of sensitive information through two-factor authentication. Pointsec for PC 6.0 streamlines the addition and management of a second authentication factor, such as a token or smart card, for endpoint security by removing the burden of costly and inflexible proprietary integrations.

"Secure access control is clearly a top priority for large organizations around the world," said Greg Salyards, practice manager at Schlumberger. "By streamlining the integration of two-factor authentication with endpoint encryption, Pointsec is bringing a powerful security combination within reach of even the largest global enterprises. Regardless if the business driver is regulatory compliance or security policy, increased interoperability of smart cards and full-disk encryption provides a clear advantages in terms of scalability, cost structure and administration to enterprise customers."
