Combined data security and cost reduction in a single offering

Milwaukee, WI (October 31, 2012) -    PKWARE, Inc., the industry leader in enterprise data security products, today announced vZip™, a software application that secures and reduces sensitive data within dormant virtual machines. PKWARE vZip allows organizations utilizing virtual infrastructures to enhance security, achieve compliance, lower storage costs, and reduce IT complexity by encrypting and compressing unused virtual machines.

With vZip, organizations eliminate costs related to non-compliance and data security breaches. Organizations that must comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) security regulations will satisfy the specific PCI requirement of securing dormant virtual machines with vZip. Additionally, enterprises can lower physical and cloud storage costs by reducing storage needs. Because vZip plugs directly into the VMware® vSphere® environment, it reduces complexity. vZip is easily installed and requires minimal user training.
