WinMagic Inc., the global innovator in disk encryption, today announced SportsMark has chosen WinMagic’s SecureDoc data security and encryption software to protect sensitive corporate hospitality program data for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Of the many events SportsMark will be involved in this year, including Super Bowl, The Masters, and the America’s Cup World Series, the London 2012 Olympic Games will be a pinnacle event. SportsMark has been preparing for this momentous event for over four years, working side by side with its clients to create unparalleled guest experiences and optimize their brand building and sales objectives. SportsMark’s clients will host more than 45,000 guests throughout the Olympic and Paralympic Games, working with a staff of over 1,000 and managing tens of thousands of Olympic event tickets on behalf of their 15 clients.

“We’ve been working with SportsMark for quite some time and we’re very pleased that they selected SecureDoc as their data encryption solution to protect the personal information of all the guests they’ll be hosting during the London 2012 Olympic Games,” said Mark Hickman, worldwide vice-president of sales at WinMagic Inc. “As an existing customer, SportsMark recognized the ease of use and flexibility of SecureDoc and we were more than happy to help ensure this continued for a project of this importance and profile.”

SportsMark’s information services team determined that they required a rapid OS and encryption deployment ready for a highly mobile and diverse workforce to securing log in onto any of their laptops at any of the locations.

“WinMagic SecureDoc was clearly the answer to our requirements,” said Scott Shuemake, systems engineer at SportsMark. “We needed an encryption solution that we could quickly and easily implement, manage centrally and provide all temporary staff with access to all the devices, so we had the flexibility to move staff around the hospitality venues across London, sometimes at short notice.”

SportsMark Group has contracted 1000 temporary hospitality event staff to work for the duration of Olympic and Paralympic Games in more than 15 pop-up offices around central London. These staff will be supplied with rented laptops that require the hard drive to be fully encrypted.

The technical solution consisted of 300 temporary licenses of WinMagic SecureDoc and SecureDoc Enterprise Server to install the SecureDoc packages and provide recovery. SportsMark also utilized WinMagic consultancy services to ensure the smoothest and quickest deployment in the fastest possible timeframe. At the end of the project, SportsMark will take advantage of SecureDoc’s Crypto erase feature to decommission the devices used for the event.

IT Outsourcing in Ukraine Becoming a Thriving Industry

With IT skilled workforce trained to provide software and application development services, among others, it is small wonder that Ukraine’s IT outsourcing (ITO) industry is booming.

Industry experts in 2010 have recorded a 20% growth in Ukraine’s outsourcing industry. The number of skilled laborers working for ITO companies surged to at least 2 400 more than that in 2009. If that is not enough to say Ukraine’s outsourcing industry is something to watch out for, then perhaps the commendations from different industry experts can speak for themselves. Ukraine was among the Global Services (GS) and Tholons’ Top50 Emerging Global Outsourcing Destinations in 2009. In 2011, Ukraine was named ITO Destination of the Year Award in the European Outsourcing Excellence Awards. It was also among the top 20 locations for outsourcing in the Global Services100 List, which is annually compiled by GS in partnership with NeoAdvisory.

Industry experts have seen several reasons why companies are choosing to outsource to Ukraine; some reputed companies have even started to establish their brand in the country. One of the most common reasons for outsourcing is the cost. Companies get to save when outsourcing some of its needed services compared to keeping an in-house department for those services. Services like software development are best outsourced to Ukraine not only because the country has a skilled workforce but also because doing so can be more cost-efficient. There are lots of resources in other locations like Moscow or St. Petersburg, but the costs there are expensive. This is an advantage to Ukraine, which is offering lower service costs than most countries in Western Europe.

Ukraine also has a high literacy rate to boast of and a high population of personnel with technical skills. The personnel usually have a background in physics or mathematics making it easy for them, to hurdle technical problems. The country’s higher education system encourages students taking computer-related courses to learn foreign languages, like English. Software developers particularly those joining the outsourcing industry had to obtain the required language skill. This makes them competent not only in providing the service required but also in communicating with the customers.

One of the ITO companies in Ukraine that specializes in software and application development is Svitla Systems, which has worked with a number of clients from start-ups to corporate companies and even educational institutions. Svitla Systems boasts of a roster of employees with adequate expertise when it comes to IT services. The company employs developers with a degree in Computer Science and many of them have Master’s Degree while some even have PhD’s. They are also good in spoken and written English so language barrier is not a problem.

Companies like Svitla Systems are the ones behind the rise of Ukraine as an outsourcing destination.
