What license is required to use PGP Virtual Disk?

Created: 22 Apr 2014 | 3 comments


This site is very confusing. I can't figure out what I need to buy to have PGP Virtual Disk functionality. Other features are not needed.

I see that "Symantec Drive Encryption" has minimal price. But does it include PGP Virtual Disk?

Hi bi11ybob,

Yes. It should be included.

The Licensing department should be able to confirm this:

Good Day,

How many clients you are looking for your encryption solution? Are you planning to use Symantec Encryption Management Server or stand alone?

PGP Virtual Disk volumes are a feature of Symantec Encryption Desktop that let you use part of your hard drive space as an encrypted virtual disk.

Best Regards,
