PGP Security last week said it was to supply government departments with a 128-bit version of its PGP for HMG encryption product.
It said the product would provide encryption technology at the approved baseline/ restricted level which would enable government bodies and commercial partners to communicate securely.
"Any government information that is sensitive is not sent electronically, instead it is saved on a disc and physically taken to the other department - at the taxpayer's expense," said Mark Tucker, sales manager for PGP. The company said version 6.0 of PGP for HMG will be fully inter-operable with its commercial counterpart.
"The sheer volume of restricted information that governments need to transfer electronically means they need a solution they can trust," said John Doody, head of customer services at the government's National Technical Information Security Authority.
