PGP Portable for Windows and Mac OS X
The PGP Corporation has announced the launch of a new mobile data protection and security product called PGP Portable. With PGP Portable, users can protect any device or any media, such as a USB flash drive or DVD, using software-based FIPS 140-2-validated encryption. PGP Portable is cross-platform and will work with Windows and Mac OS X using Explorer or Finder to open the protected media. Additional software or special machine privileges are not required to decrypt the media and automation and provisioning are also supported.
According to the PGP Portable FAQ, a licensed version of PGP client software version 9.9.1 or later for Windows and a PGP Universal Server are required to create all PGP Portable devices and media. Once the devices are created, anyone with the valid passphrase can access them. PGP Portable devices or media can be accessed on systems running Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Mac OS X 10.5.
