Secure USB flash drives for Torbay Care Trust

SanDisk : 15 May, 2009  (Application Story)
Torquay community health organisation to make use of Cruzer Enterprise USB flash drives with encryption and password protection for improved mobile data security
SanDisk has announced that Torbay Care Trust in Torquay has selected SanDisk's Cruzer Enterprise secure USB flash drives to help protect mobile data stored on the drives from unauthorized access. The SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise flash drives use data encryption and password-protection to safeguard confidential data while providing the convenience of storing private data on portable USB drives.

Torbay Care Trust provides community health and social care services to tens of thousands of people in its area. To help secure sensitive patient information and standardise data transfer processes, the Trust has purchased and rolled out 1000 Cruzer Enterprise flash drives. The flash drives will be issued to and used by all staff members, in particular those employees working remotely or transferring data between sites.

"We decided to deploy an encrypted USB solution across the Trust as data security breaches have become a national concern," said Sue Fankhauser, IT buyer for Torbay Care Trust. "Our IT department felt that it was necessary to employ a best-practice solution to protect data against any potential threats and to reassure the public that patient data is secured. After evaluating numerous encrypted flash drives, we chose the Cruzer Enterprise flash drive because it met all of our security requirements.

We also asked SanDisk to send us the USBs without any unnecessary packaging - which they were more than happy to do. As well as being environmentally friendly, this produced no waste at our end, helping to support our eco-friendly policies."

Recent data security breaches within other Government organisations have led to calls for greater data security with transportable media devices, such as data sticks, and by deploying the SanDisk drive, Torbay Care Trust feels it is setting the standard for others to follow.

SanDisk's Cruzer Enterprise secure USB flash drives are specifically designed to meet the unique USB security, compliance and manageability needs of large enterprises, and to help IT professionals more effectively protect mobile data. Rather than relying on users to secure files, the flash drive imposes mandatory access control on all files, storing them in a hardware-encrypted, password-protected partition.

SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise flash drives protect all files stored on the drive with advanced hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption. Cruzer Enterprise flash drives are also fast, with read speed of 24MB/sec and write speed of 20 MB/sec. SanDisk is a leader in providing innovative, secure USB flash drives and management solutions for the mobile workforce in enterprises and government agencies.

Established in 2005, Torbay Care Trust is the only integrated community health and adult social care organisation in the South West. The Trust is responsible for commissioning, or buying, services on behalf of local people, including community healthcare services, adult social care and learning disability services.
