SportsMark selects WinMagic Encryption technology to protect critical data at London 2012 Olympic Games

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.

Disktrix Releases UltimateDefrag

Disktrix has released version 4 of their unique defragmentation software UltimateDefrag.

Created for all versions of the Windows operating system, UltimateDefrag takes a unique and highly effective approach to defragmentation and hard drive optimization by applying Pareto’s Law of 80/20 to file use while simultaneously considering the variation of file access and data transfer performance depending upon the physical location of data on a mechanical hard drive.

While there are dozens of hard drive defragmentation products on the market, none of these defragmentation products address the true reasons for reduced hard drive performance and most merely defragment fragmented files.

According to DiskTrix programmers, there are 3 factors that reduce hard drive performance, of which file fragmentation, incidentally is the least significant. The other two, and primary, reasons for reduced hard drive performance which contribute around 90% to reduction in performance, and can be countered in order to optimize performance, are 1. Data Transfer Rates and 2. Seek Times.

The rate limiting factor to the performance of PCs and servers is the hard drive. By optimizing hard drive Data Transfer Rates to 150% of factory averages and Seek Times by up to 500%, raw hard drive performance can be improved by up to a factor of 4, compared with average quoted performance from the factory and up to 6 times for hard drives that are getting full.

By optimizing and reorganizing files on the hard drive to maximize data transfer rates, minimize seek times and defragment files, UltimateDefrag vastly reduces this rate limiting bottleneck which results in much faster file access which the user experiences as a faster Windows PC.

UltimateDefrag intelligently tracks user file usage patterns. It allows the user to operate in 2 modes. Power Users get to enjoy Expert Mode where they can manually configure numerous options to manually choose which programs, files and folders they want maximum performance from. PC users who just want a fast PC without having to drill down into the programs advanced features can select Simple Mode for an automatically and intelligently optimized hard drive that will give the user maximum file access performance.

And in another first for any defragmentation product, users now enjoy the ability to choose any programs the wish to achieve maximum performance from by simply selecting the program of a list of installed applications. UltimateDefrag will optimally place all files for that application to the fastest performing areas of the user’s hard drive.

Originally released in 2006, UltimateDefrag has always been the only defragmentation that offers its own unique approach to defragmentation and hard drive optimization and with version 4, users now have more power and flexibility than ever before.

UltimateDefrag4 is priced at $29.95, with discounts for multiple license purchases. It is compatible with all versions of Windows including Windows 7, Vista, XP and Windows Servers.

It is available by Electronic Software Distribution at the publisher’s website at www.disktrix.com.
