PGP WDE on dual boot (Windows 7/Ubuntu 10.04)

Created: 28 Sep 2013 | 4 comments

Good morning,
I have a little question about license for a dual boot machine (Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04.4)
Factory where I work decided to apply Whole Encryption Disk on disk of all notebook, but probably we have only PGP software 10.2.1 build 4461 for Windows, the procedure is made only under this s.o.
Is it possible download the PGP software for Ubuntu 10.04and install it (on same machine) before the encrypting or we must buy another license only for this second partitions, or is there another solution?

Thanks.
Best Regards.

Sorry, not so much.
I have already seen that page but I cannot understand if it's possible install software for PGP on the same machine, downloading file from "Symantec File Connect",  with the same Serial Number.

You can download it more than once from FileConnect.

I believe your question has more to do with the licensing than the actual encryption.  Licensing should only apply once per user/machine combination, so you should consider a single user with one dual-boot machine as one license, even though it contains two partitions with differing operating systems.

It should effectively be the same as having a machine with multiple disks, you do not need a separate license for each one.
