Alliance brings high security to mobile workers

BeCrypt : 22 January, 2009  (Company News)
DMS and BeCrypt alliance protects the confidentiality of data used by mobile users with the help of dual factor optical authentication
BeCrypt has teamed up with Distributed Management Systems (DMS) to provided an integrated highly secure solution based on Trusted Client and CASQUE. BeCrypt's Trusted Client provides low-cost, secure remote access to corporate networks so that staff can work safely from an unmanaged PC . DMS's CASQUE is a self-contained methodology for access control covering authentication, authorisation and key management. Combining the two technologies, users can access the portion of data that is relevant for their needs from an unmanaged connected PC without risk of data loss or leakage. Using Trusted Client and CASQUE users can not be accidentally compromised. Both technologies are developed in the UK and address the data handling needs for confidential data, there is also a commercial version of the solution.

Inserting the Trusted Client device into a USB port and re-booting launches a secure environment giving locked down access to predetermined applications only. Trusted Client is fully configurable to each organisation's individual requirements. Unlike other solutions, Trusted Client's innovative use of technology creates a secure environment on the host PC where the hard drive is never accessed, only the PC's memory and processor are used. The hard drive is bypassed so that no data can be leaked and no malware can infect the network. Any data that is saved to Trusted Client is automatically encrypted or Trusted Client can be configured to be a read-only device so that no data can be saved.

Once Trusted Client has established a secure tunnel via the firewall and secure gateway, the CASQUE token is held to the workstation screen to receive an optical encrypted message. A computed response is shown on the token's own display which the user enters into the workstation keyboard. Using this multiple challenge/response protocol, CASQUE can effect a user transparent key change and allows the solution to prevent replay attack, phishing and cloning of the token. After completing the session, the user simply shuts down Trusted Client, no record of the session is left on the temporary host computer.

Basil Philipsz, Managing Director of DMS said, "Developed in the UK, CASQUE is a military-strength, secure remote access solution that not only strongly authenticates the user but also verifies End Client health. By teaming our technology with BeCrypt's Trusted Client, we are able to provide incredibly secure access for remote workers ensuring that confidential information can not be compromised."

Ben Ross, Vice President of Marketing at BeCrypt said: "As organisations look to reduce the overheads of office based staff, and provide more flexible working facilities, they are faced with the dilemma of how to protect data at the endpoint. We are delighted to be working with DMS and CASQUE to provide this innovative, cost effective and yet rigorous solution to that dilemma. "
