SPYRUS Announces Support Program for SPYRUS for Windows To Go-Certified USB 3.0 
Drives and Apple Macintosh Computers 
For the SPYRUS Secure Portable Workplace and Portable Workplace 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 --  SPYRUS today announced
its new support service program to enable booting its Secure Portable
Workplace(TM) and Portable Workplace for Windows To Go-certified
devices on Apple Macintosh computers. This support program will
enable enterprises to support their BYOD initiatives for teleworking,
the traveling "road warrior," temporary workers, and Continuity of
Operations by booting Windows To Go not only from PCs certified to
run Windows 7 or Windows 8, but also from Apple Macintosh computers.  
SPYRUS Secure Portable Workplace was certified by Microsoft Corp. in
October 2012 as one of the first hardware encrypting USB 3.0 devices
for Windows To Go. The strength of on-board military-grade hardware
encryption enables Secure Portable Workplace to withstand attacks
from gaining access to information on the device. SPYRUS patented
technology and extensive built-in self checks enforce on-the-fly
integrity validation to help enable fast and secure boot-up. Secure
Portable Workplace was designed to meet strong FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and
Level 3 certification requirements and implements US
Government-approved, next-generation cryptographic algorithms that
help protect the device, the data, and the operating system. 
Windows To Go is a feature in Windows 8 Enterprise that enables
enterprises to provision a full corporate desktop on a certified
external USB 3.0 drive, enabling users to boot and use their full
corporate image on PCs certified for use with Windows 7 or Windows 8.
And with the announcement of the SPYRUS support program, SPYRUS will
provide service and support allowing users to boot the Windows 8
Enterprise corporate desktop on many Apple Macintosh computers.  
Enterprise requirements for SPYRUS customization services and support
include use rights for Windows To Go and license to use iMac,
MacMini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air (including MacBooks with Retina
display) running OS X Snow Leopard (10.6) or higher.  
As part of the SPYRUS secure ecosystem, Secure Portable Workplace and
Portable Workplace USB 3.0 drives are managed by the SPYRUS
Enterprise Management System to allow authorized administrators to
remotely disable the drives. This provides centralized controls to
help protect against data theft or loss. 
Now enterprises can add this dimension of user computers for
deploying their corporate Windows 8 operating environment on the
Secure Portable Workplace and Portable Workplace devices to
accomplish the enterprise BYOD initiatives for teleworking from home,
aiming to provide significant cost savings to the Enterprise.
