I'm very pleased to announced that PGP Desktop 10.0 is now shipping.

All customers with current subscription licenses or maintenance will receive this upgrade free of charge. It is also available for purchase by new customers on the PGP webstore. PGP Desktop 10.0 brings all of the features you've come to expect to Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) including support for Boot Camp, Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit), and for the first time Whole Disk Encryption support to Linux (Red Hat and Ubuntu).

What else is new?  In summary:

  • Encrypt/Sign button for Microsoft Outlook
  • Faster encryption and decryption
  • Installation localization for French and Spanish
  • Safeguards against boot disk corruption
  • Support for Boot Camp

This also marks the termination of the PGP Desktop 10.0 beta program. I'd like to thank the hundreds of you who contributed to this program and helping us make PGP Desktop 10.0 the best release ever.

All 30 day beta licenses will be honored for the full 30 days from the time the license was issued. At that point the beta will cease working unless a non-beta (commercial) license is provided. Disks that have been Whole Disk Encrypted using the PGP Desktop 10.0 beta will decrypt when the beta license expires.

Good news!
As I find 5 PGP Desktop products spread out over the website, can you clarify which of these (or all) are already (or will be) available for Mac OS 10.6?
- professional
- email
- home
- corporate
- storage

The detail pages for some of the products still say they are for Mac OS 10.5.

Any update pricing for users of version 9?

PGP Desktop Professional 10.0, PGP Desktop Email 10.0, and PGP Desktop Home 10.0 all support Mac OS 10.6.

PGP Desktop Storage and PGP Desktop Corporate do not support Mac OS (any version).
