Simple, inexpensive removable storage encryption

Avanquest Software : 13 February, 2009  (New Product)
EncryptX DeviceDefender encrypts USB attached devices and other removable media and enables the devices to be used on other workstations
Avanquest Solutions introduces encryptX DeviceDefender - the anytime, anyplace, anywhere encryption software for PC USB ports and all removable devices (USB Flash Drives, Removable Hard Drives, CompactFlash, SD, MicroSD and Memory Sticks).

DeviceDefender protects the USB port on your PC from any inbound threats - someone plugging in their unprotected removable device - and all your removable devices used at third party workstations when you are out and about.

Some encryption programs don't allow users to use their protected files on other PCs. So switching between a work, home or a remote public PC can be a problem. Not if DeviceDefender is used because you take the encryption with you - once it has been installed on the removable device from your computer - it runs from the removable drive, so files can be accessed from any PC.

Users don't need to worry or learn about using an encryption program. DeviceDefender delivers automatic and transparent encryption (256 bit AES). All users need to do is create a password. Files and folders created in Microsoft Office, Internet Explorer, MediaPlayer and backup programs, plus those you want to save by dragging/dropping into the USB drive from within the Operating System, will be automatically encrypted and protected as they are saved.

Decrypting a file is just as simple; just double click to open the file in the application. Any changes made will then be automatically saved and encrypted again.

At the point of USB access on any remote PC workstation and without requiring special privileges or administrative rights, DeviceDefender automatically initiates, giving secure access to the encrypted files on the removable device and protecting user data in that environment from viruses and malware.

The consumer version of DeviceDefender allows users to encrypt an unlimited number of removable devices and gives options on which drives are encrypted and which are not. It also has an integrated local password recovery feature and an anti-password guessing mechanism to defeat automated password attacks.

The Enterprise edition includes central administration and management. All removable devices can be tracked and administrators are able to find out what files are stored on the drives, the users accessing them, and the PCs the drives are being used with.

They can also remotely recover lost or forgotten passwords and disable access to a drive if it is lost, stolen, or is in use by a non-trusted user.

DeviceDefender costs £23.77 + VAT for a single user, with scalable reductions for large enterprise users.
