SecureDoc keeping the personal information of 45,000 guests encrypted
and secured on 300 laptops onsite in London
MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 26, 2012 /CNW/ - 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
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.
