Data encryption device attains SC magazine 5 star rating

Data Encryption Systems (DES) : 29 July, 2009  (Company News)
Recognition for DESlock+ based on intuitive protection of removable media
Data Encryption Systems Limited (DES), the UK-based software copyright protection, data encryption, secure messaging and data storage solutions provider, is pleased to announce that its flagship product, DESlock+ Version 4.0, has just received a five star rating in leading IT security magazine, SC Magazine. This is the highest accolade the magazine awards products under review.

The review, which was published as part of a Group Test on various encryption tools, was published in SC Magazine US, and can also be found online at the SC Magazine website. DES achieved full marks for performance, features, support and value for money and gained an overall rating of five stars.

Nathan Ouellette, product reviewer at SC Magazine, comments: "A unique feature that we liked is the way DESlock+ handles removable media such as USB drives. Users are able to utilise USB tokens without having to encrypt the entire drive. An encrypted folder is created on the stick and any PC with the DESlock+ client software installed will mount the drive from the encrypted folder, making the root folder of the drive equate to the encrypted data. Data is visible or hidden depending on whether the host has the agent installed."

DESlock+ Version 4.0 was launched at this year's Infosecurity Show, and has since been gaining a lot of interest. The product adds full-disk and policy-driven removable storage encryption to the well established granular encryption features of DESlock+. The revised back-end updates to the software now allow for a greater degree of control and policy enforcement from the DESlock+ Enterprise Server module and Administration Console. The product is also in the process of qualifying for a US government standard, FIPS 140-2 approval, with certification imminent.

David Tomlinson, Managing Director at DES, explains: "We are delighted that the hard work we have put into product development over the past year has paid off. As a relatively small company, we are very proud to have been tested against the rest of the industry and to have come out with top marks - even beating some of the bigger brand products on the market, such as BeCrypt and Credant. This review demonstrates what we already knew, and that's that DESlock+ is a market leader when it comes to encryption."
