Datacastle RED Launches as the First Business Resiliency Solution for the Mobile Workforce

Datacastle's Business Resilience Product Transforms Vulnerable Information on Laptops Into Resilient Endpoint Data That Can Be Encrypted, Recovered and Deleted via Policy

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - Datacastle, a market leader for business resiliency solutions for the mobile workforce, today announced the availability of Datacastle RED, a groundbreaking product that turns vulnerable business information on laptops and desktops into resilient endpoint data that can be encrypted, recovered and deleted via policy.

The first business resiliency product designed specifically for the mobile workforce, Datacastle RED helps organizations enforce information security policies, recover from unexpected events of any size and severity, and meet regulatory compliance requirements.

"Managing enterprise desktops and laptops is tough and getting even more challenging as users become increasingly mobile and data handling compliance requirements grow at the federal and state level," said Ron Faith, CEO of Datacastle. "At Datacastle we believe information security, business continuity, and data handling compliance must be as friction free for the end user as possible to ensure broad adoption and superior policy enforcement. Organizations can now exceed their information security, compliance and productivity requirements with Datacastle RED, a single turnkey product that is easy to deploy and manage via public or private clouds."

Datacastle RED transforms the vulnerable business information on laptops into resilient endpoint data through a rich feature set that is controlled and enforced via a centralized policy management engine. As a single, unobtrusive agent on the laptop or desktop Datacastle RED enables an organization to:

--  Recover lost or damaged business information -- Automatic laptop and
    PC backups meet strict Recovery Point Objectives by protecting data down to
    one minute intervals and delivering the ability to recover different
    versions of critical files.
--  Protect information at rest -- Policy-based AES 256-bit encryption
    with cryptographically random keys on the device, over the network, and on
    the server.
--  Shred information before it gets in the wrong hands -- Remotely wipe
    selected files when a device is lost or stolen whether the device connects
    to the network or not.
--  Enforce data leak prevention policies -- Policy enforcement for
    read/write privileges for USB drives, CD/DVD drives and other ports.
--  Save on storage and bandwidth utilization -- Patent pending data
    deduplication technology works across all encrypted data and devices on
    your network.

Datacastle RED is available for enterprise implementation or as a cloud service directly from Datacastle or a network of partners in North America, Europe and Australia. Eligible IT departments are currently able to take advantage of Datacastle's "See RED for Free" promotion, which offers 25 users with 25 GB of protected information for free for one year.
