Enterprise portable storage management

DeviceLock : 04 September, 2008  (Company News)
Encryption combined with download management to portable storage devices results from partnership between IronKey and DeviceLock
DeviceLock and IronKey will jointly market a comprehensive, enterprise-grade solution to securely manage the use of portable storage devices within the confines of the corporate network.

IronKey flash drives encrypt data using hardware-based, military-grade encryption, thus protecting critical corporate information should the device be lost or stolen. DeviceLock software controls and audits downloading and uploading activity via PC ports, wireless networks, printers and drives, including portable USB flash drives. The combination of the FIPS-certified cryptographic data protection of IronKey drives, together with DeviceLock's highly-granular user access permissions, creates a seamless data leakage solution that enforces USB device control policies from the desktop to the pocket. This also enables IronKey devices to be white-listed, allowing only these highly-secure devices to be used in corporate USB ports.

"DeviceLock and IronKey foresee continued growth in the use of removable storage devices by employees due to the small and convenient form factor," explains Ashot Oganesyan, chief technology officer at DeviceLock. "Our mutual mission is to help IT security staff cope with the resultant threat to data privacy and security in an efficient, comprehensive and deeply granular manner."

Featuring a comprehensive central management platform fully integrated with Microsoft Active Directory, DeviceLock enables security administrators to precisely control, monitor online, shadow-copy, log and analyze end-user access to all types of devices and local ports on their personal computers, as well as automatically block operations of hardware keyloggers. DeviceLock proactively protects against data leakage and corporate network infiltration by malware via the local ports of distributed computers, thus significantly reducing business risks resulting from insider malicious actions, errors or negligence.

"Organizations today are looking for easy-to-use solutions that enable both the flexibility of using mobile data storage devices, as well as the assurance that sensitive data is encrypted and fully protected when transferred via USB ports," said Steve Ryan, vice president of business development at IronKey. "The combined IronKey and DeviceLock solution provides the level of comprehensive protection against both internal and external threats to data privacy and security that our customers demand."

IronKey brings unprecedented mobile data security through a combination of security applications and services along with hardware-based encryption. Together, DeviceLock and IronKey help to prevent employees from using their corporate and personal computing resources to siphon off valued information beyond the scope of their jobs and outside the guidelines of IT security policies.
