Testing Organization Boosts Data Protection

PGP Corporation, global provider of enterprise data protection, today announced that Educational Testing Service (ETS) has selected the PGP® Encryption Platform as the core of its enterprise data protection strategy.

Founded in 1947, ETS is a global, non-profit educational assessment and research company that offers a standardized method for measuring knowledge and skills. With over 2,500 employees worldwide, ETS develops, administers, and scores more than 50 million tests annually - including the TOEFL® and TOEIC® tests, the GRE® test, The Praxis SeriesT teacher assessments and The College Board's SAT and AP Programs.

ETS had solid network security, but recognized a need for greater data security, especially with unencrypted laptops used throughout its operations worldwide. The loss of a single laptop could severely damage its business and reputation. In addition, ETS wanted a data protection solution that would eventually enable them to exchange secure communications with college and university registrars, which log into ETS systems to obtain applicant test score results.

ETS selected the PGP Encryption Platform as the cornerstone of its data protection strategy as it met all of ETS's criteria for data encryption, which included: standards-based security, central management, ease of use with no user intervention required, and extensibility for future applications.
