Symantec Endpoint Encryption is now supported on Ubuntu LTS

Symantec Endpoint Encryption (powered by PGP) has been updated to to version 3.3.  For more information check out the release notes found on Symwise: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH201458

Several changes have been made in this release including:

  • Support for Windows 8 on both the 32-bit and 64-bit version

  • Support for Outlook 2013 on the client

  • Support for Red Hat Linux and CentOS 6.3 and 6.4 both 64-bit and 32-bit.

  • Support for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

This provides one of the missing parts of what I need to be able to run Ubuntu at my enterprise as we have a requirement to have our drives encrypted by the supported encryption product and have our keys managed centrally.

I hope things like this will see Ubuntu grow into the enterprise from a desktop point of view. Now all we need is integration into an endpoint management tool.
