Cryptzone receives approval to be listed by GSA for US Federal government purchases

GOTEBORG, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) -


Gothenburg, 21st November - Cryptzone, a leading provider of data leak prevention and encryption solutions today announced through a strategic partnership between Dox Electronics and Cryptzone, Dox Electronics has added the Cryptzone DLP and Encryption technology to their General Services Administration (GSA) contract GS-35F-0066T which will help facilitate purchase of Cryptzone's solutions by federal, state, county and city governments.

Approval of the updated GSA contract schedule simplifies the process by which Cryptzone sells to government entities by eliminating the need for agencies to secure a request for proposal and/or issue single source purchases of technology. The GSA Schedule is the preferred vehicle for government buyers; product and service providers who have contracts on the GSA Schedule are more likely to be selected by government purchasing agents.

Cryptzone's award winning technology protects confidential data, manages the identities of people and applications accessing that information, and includes policy based encryption modules to secure USB flash drives, hard drives, emails, files/folders, as well as portable device and port control management.

"The hard work required to obtain a GSA schedule illustrates our commitment to serving this important and growing market segment," said Peter Davin, CEO of Cryptzone. "In government, there is intense demand for technology solutions that improve an organization's ability to secure and monitor sensitive information. We strongly believe that Cryptzone is better prepared than ever to serve the complex and changing IT needs of our federal government customer. Cryptzone's new GSA contract will make it easier than ever for government agencies to leverage the industry's leading data leak prevention solution."
