CAPS approval process underway for removable media encryption from BeCrypt

BeCrypt : 18 June, 2008  (New Product)
Zero footprint, device based encryption software for removable media including USB devices goes through approvals process for FIPS 140-2
BeCrypt's newly developed CD/USB media/file encryption which will be part of the new BeCrypt Client is currently going through CAPS approval. In addition, FIPS 140-2 approval is expected in the third quarter of 2008, and the official launch of BeCrypt Client is scheduled for September 2008.

With its suite of encryption products BeCrypt already offers solutions that provide protection for data at rest on laptops, desktops and USB devices suitable for Impact Levels 1 to 4 and Impact Level 5 (short term). BeCrypt Client with CD, USB media and flash file encryption extends BeCrypt's solution to ensure the integrity of data and enable its secure sharing with authorised third parties. BeCrypt Client operates with a 'zero footprint' on the device itself so that authorised recipients can access data without needing to have the BeCrypt software installed, they simply need to successfully complete the authentication process.

Initially BeCrypt Client will provide CD, USB media and file encryption as a stand alone solution. However, subsequent versions will see BeCrypt Client develop into a unified, policy based, client side data security solution with a range of enterprise management options. BeCrypt Client will include data encryption (using FIPS libraries for commercial installations and Impact Levels 2 and below, CAPS approved DISK Protect Baseline for Impact Level 3 and CAPS approved DISK Protect Enhanced for Impact Level 4 and 5 short term), port control/end point security, and removable media encryption (for CDs, DVDs and USB devices).

Dr Bernard Parsons, CEO of BeCrypt said, "We have listened to our customers requirements and we work closely with the UK Government to develop workable and innovative solutions to meet their stringent requirements. With the development of BeCrypt Client CD/USB media/file encryption we are extending our range to cover most requirements for Government and public sector data security.

"Our commercial customers also benefit from this approach as they have access
to flexible solutions with the government heritage and all the checks and safety measures that this implies."

A technical preview of BeCrypt's CD/USB media/file encryption solution is now available for evaluation with FIPS libraries. This will be fully upgradeable to the CAPS approved version when it is available.
