Check Point released a new software solution aimed at securing Mac computers called Check Point Full disk Encryption for Mac OS X. Check Point says that this is the first full disk encryption program with pre-boot authentication for the Mac OS in the industry.

The application supports Mac OS X 10.4.5 tiger through 10.5 Leopard. The pre-boot authentication requires a username and password before the OS even loads and operation of the encrypting software is transparent and has minimal impact on the operation of the notebook or desktop Mac system. Management and setup is central making for easy management.

"Enterprises and organizations have to secure 100 percent of their laptops and desktops to be fully protected," said Bob Egner vice president of product management at Check Point. "Check Point recognizes that Mac OS has an important and growing place in the enterprise and is proud to offer enterprise customers endpoint solutions that cover all platforms and work in mixed environments."
