Credant technologies protects data across its full lifecycle by protecting and encrypting user and corporate data -- from PC to mobile to cloud -- and works with enterprises' existing systems management processes. Further, the technology supports multiple mobile operating systems allowing companies to confidently embrace the growing "bring your own device" adoption.

Dell has a long-standing joint development partnership and OEM agreement with Credant and uses its technology in its Dell data protection, encryption solution.

Credant currently secures data for two million plus endpoints with customers in a variety of industries including, aerospace and defense, energy, financial services, universities, public sector, drugs and healthcare, retail and consumer, and telecommunications, IT and medi
