Check Point has released a version of Check Point Full Disk Encryption for the Mac (via MacDailyNews). With the release, Check Point is the industrys first full-disk encryption solution with pre-boot authentication to support the Mac OS.

"Enterprises and organizations have to secure 100 percent of their laptops and desktops to be fully protected," said Bob Egner vice president of product management at Check Point. "Check Point recognizes that Mac OS has an important and growing place in the enterprise and is proud to offer enterprise customers endpoint solutions that cover all platforms and work in mixed environments."

"We're delighted that Mac users in industries like government and healthcare who value high-quality encryption technologies have a strong solution that supports Leopard, the world's most advanced operating system," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "Leopard is Apple's most secure OS release ever, and Check Point's encryption solution nicely complements features already present in Mac OS X."

Check Point supports Mac OS 10.4.5 Tiger through Mac OS 10.5.x Leopard in addition to Windows and Linux. Pricing starts at $120 for 1-99 users.

Many large corporations and governments have been deploying full-disk encryption solutions on portable computers, especially after high-profile laptop thefts. The lack of full-disk encryption has been cited as one reason why more enterprises are not adopting Macs.
