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...

While the chances are extremely low that a boot.efi file could become corrupt on a boot disk or partition protected by PGP Whole Disk Encryption, it is possible. If this occurs, it could prevent your system from booting. Prepare for this unlikely event by creating a recovery CD before you encrypt a boot disk or partition using PGP Whole Disk Encryption on a Macintosh Snow Leopard system.

This recovery disk is only available for usage on Macintosh OSX 10.5.8 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) systems with PGP Desktop 10. Download the image for disks encrypted with PGP Desktop 10 ONLY.

Like everyone in the Macintosh user community, we're excited by Apple's early Friday delivery of Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6). Unfortunately, like many applications at the moment, the currently shipping versions of PGP Desktop products (v 9.10) are not supported on Snow Leopard. This includes PGP Desktop Professional, PGP Desktop Home, PGP Desktop Email and PGP Whole Disk Encryption (a comprehensive list of Mac OS X applications and their status on Snow Leopard is available on the MacInTouch site).

While we are working diligently to complete the Snow Leopard compatible versions of the PGP Desktop products, we do not recommend you use the currently shipping versions on any system that has been upgraded to Snow Leopard. Please note that users wanting to migrate to Snow Leopard immediately must first decrypt all of their PGP WDE encrypted drives and uninstall...
