Remote flash drive management for mobile users

Securinet : 06 May, 2009  (New Product)
Flash memory devices from Securinet enable organisations to remotely manage the security of data on the move
Transporting sensitive data on a memory stick need no longer pose the risks of data or identity theft for users an innovative managed security service from Securinet, the security specialists for SMEs.

Starting at prices as low as £10 per month, Securinet can provide a highly secure USB flash drive that can be remotely managed and preset to comply with an organisation's security policy.

In the event of theft or loss, the flash drive data can be permanently and physically destroyed when an authorised access is attempted.

Ben Rexworthy, managing director, of Securinet said: "Virtually all of our clients appreciate the business benefits of mobile data, but are very concerned with the security of data on their USB flash drives. We have therefore developed a service which uses a high security USB drive that can be installed with an organisation's security policy and managed remotely.

"Our service enables business directors to do everything that they reasonably can to protect data on USB sticks and to meet their obligations of duty of care of data."

Securinet customers are provided with a highly secure encrypted USB flash drive that can be unlocked by a password. Securinet consults with service users to apply (or help develop) their security policy for the USB drive.

For example, users can request that USB drives can only be used on computers with one or more specific IP addresses. Or they could choose to allow the USB drive to be unlocked one or more consecutive times on a machine that is not connected to the Internet or on a machine with an unpredictable IP address.

The options are infinite and can be tailored precisely to meet the needs of any company.

If the company policy is contravened then the USB flash drive can be programmed to self-destruct and the drive will be rendered useless as a computer peripheral.

"This is a huge step forward in security and our aim is to keep it simple for users. They just need to tell us how they want their USB flash drives managed and we will apply a suitable policy if they don't already have one. We can also manage the device in such a way that its activities can be monitored and tracked for auditing purposes."
