Siler City, NC. – Carolina Advanced Digital, Inc. (CAD) has been awarded a contract by the State of North Carolina to provide disk encryption using Winmagic’s SecureDoc solution. The contract is part of an effort by state government to increase the security and integrity of confidential and personal information and will offer data encryption protection for laptops, desktops, servers, mobile devices, removable media, and files and folders. Installation, consulting and training will be provided by CAD as part of the contract.

Winmagic’s SecureDoc disk encryption solution meets the State of North Carolina’s criteria for the protection of critical government data and is the only disk encryption software certified by the National Security Agency (NSA). While the contract is mandatory for government agencies, it will be offered as a convenience contract to the North Carolina University and Community College System, as well as the K-12 school system and local government agencies.

The product fits well with Carolina Advanced Digital’s focus on network security and protection of critical data. “The NSA certification holds a lot of weight with us since our company founders are ex-military,” said Susan Jabbusch, Vice President of Carolina Advanced Digital. “We dedicate our engineering efforts solely to best of breed solutions. Our own in-house use and testing of SecureDoc convinced us that it was a superior product to offer our client base.”
