USB Device For Secure Remote Working

Cryptzone : 03 July, 2012  (New Product)
The AppGate MOVE from Cryptzone is a bootable flash drive enabling remote working employees to access their computing environment from any computer securely
Cryptzone announces the release of AppGate MOVE (My Own Virtual Environment), a USB flash drive that provides a portable and robust way to access information and applications securely from virtually any computer. As the secure bootable USB works independently of the host device’s operating system, the risk from malware infection is eradicated.

Jamie Bodley-Scott, Account Director for Systems Integratorsat Cryptzone says “With more organisations offering occasional home working, MOVE is a perfect low-cost option, providing trustedaccess to corporate information from anuntrusted computer at home or in a public space.MOVE allows people to work securely because the configuration of the PC is irrelevant and untouched.Thisis important from a security policy viewpoint.”

MOVE is also ideal when users are prevented from working at their usual office locations: maybe during the Olympics or following a disaster. Itoffers usersa quick and easy remote working capability, where they have not been provisioned with expensive corporate laptops.

Andy Kellett, Principal Analyst at Ovum comments "From a security and usability standpoint there are a number of advantages provided by the AppGate MOVE USB drive. Portability and the flexibility to use the drive in conjunction with a user’s own device provide convenience and support for those occasions when it is not possible to use a company approved machine. Added to that, the secure boot elements and the fact that no data is held on the computer’s hard drive also address malware and spyware concerns.”

Working in combination with an AppGate Security Server, this USB flash drive is a bootable device that contains a full operating system, the AppGate client, a web browser, a Microsoft compatible Office Suite™ email client, and other applications required to complete daily tasks. MOVE does not rely on, or use the operating system on the computer, and it executes in a secure and trusted environment regardless of the configuration. In addition, MOVE includes an encrypted partition for user data, so it does not use local PC hard drive meaning no trace or residue is left when the session to the AppGate server is closed.

Key features of AppGate MOVE USB:

* Automatic launch of remote access When the user starts the system installed on the USB flash drive, the AppGate client is automatically launched and the user can log into the office.

* No data or malware transfer possible - Neither the AppGate client nor the applications being used during the session, can or will store data on the computer’s hard disks. As the disks are not touched the client is safe from any malware, spyware or viruses that may be present on the computer.

* Secure encrypted access - The system administrator can define specific rules when MOVE is used to grant or deny user access to applications and data.

* All software pre-installed on USB - AppGate MOVE contains all the necessary components to run securely on personal computers. All applications necessary for the end-user are also pre-installed on the USB flash drive, and the device includes a firewall for extra protection.

AppGate MOVE costs £48 each or organisations can opt to buy an AppGateUSB Factory to produce unlimited copies of MOVE.
