HP is to bundle a mobile data encryption program in its business notebook and tablet PCs.

HP is including the SafeBoot encryption technology in the PCs to help firms protect their intellectual property, business documents, customer data and employee records.

SafeBoot delivers two-factor pre-boot access control and FIPS-certified encryption technologies.

“HP selected SafeBoot for its ability to easily deploy and scale throughout the enterprise, PKI infrastructure integration and policy management capabilities,” said Carol Hess-Nickels, director of worldwide business notebook marketing in the Personal Systems Group at HP.

She said, “Our work with SafeBoot provides customers with some of the most robust and effective data protection technology available, and combats the pervasive problem of laptop theft and data compromise without creating a large footprint on the IT infrastructure.”

SafeBoot is already used by 3m users around the world, said SafeBoot.
