Software token integrated with IronKey USB devices

CryptoCard : 30 April, 2009  (New Product)
Security system involving two-factor authentication using different technologies provides protection from multiple threats
CryptoCard has announced an OEM deal with global USB flash drive and portable security device vendor, IronKey. CryptoCard's multi-platform software token has been integrated across IronKey's product portfolio, enabling organisations to implement a combined (2FA) security strategy that protects data held on mobile storage devices, such as a USB drive, and secures the network against unauthorised access.

Neil Hollister, CEO of CryptoCard, explains; "Businesses and government organisations are under increasing pressure from the UK's Information Commissioners Office to take additional measures to protect data on mobile and portable devices. This is further compounded by a continued drive to improve the security of access to data stored within the network.

"It made sense to find a cost effective way of coupling both areas of data protection. Combining our password token technology with IronKey's suite of products creates a 'trusted' environment for data stored outside of the traditional network perimeter, and also ensures the identity of users accessing the network remotely."

Mitigating the risks associated with data leaving the network, the combined security and storage device also minimises the number of security devices and processes users are required to carry and comply with.

According to CryptoCard reseller BSS, this will appeal to organisations looking to reduce the cost of security processes, but not compromise on the threat of data or identity theft.

"Our customers are increasingly looking to reduce cost and complexity and so the ability to have their authentication token integrated with another critical security device clearly differentiates both companies propositions. We expect big demand for the solution," said Willie McKee, Managing Director at BSS.

By embedding CryptoCard technology into IronKey's suite of products, users are provided with a portable (2FA) solution via a device they are carrying anyway, eliminating the need to carry a separate token. Data is further protected with high-speed, military-grade hardware encryption, intelligent anti-malware controls, and encased in a waterproof and tamper resistant housing.

"We are dedicated to developing market leading solutions to protect our customers' data and networks,' said Steve Ryan, Senior Vice President of Business Development, at IronKey. 'Now businesses can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their data is not only secure on the device, but also that the network which holds their data is protected from malicious access.'
