Encrypted OS on USB for secure booting.

BeCrypt : 15 October, 2007  (New Product)
Authentication and operating system on USB memory allows thin client or web access in untrusted environments.
Box Play Business Solutions, a reseller for BeCrypt solutions in the Nordic Area, will be showcasing BeCrypt's Trusted Client at Information Security Expo. Trusted Client uses innovative technology to provide a safe, configurable operating system that fits on a USB memory stick, for use in un-managed environments. It allows a trusted environment on an untrusted host and can be used for thin-client applications, web or email access or for stand-alone applications. All information including the operating system on the USB stick is encrypted and protected with boot time authentication to ensure confidentiality and integrity of data.

Trusted Client provides increased flexibility for workers as they can work securely from any computer in any location. It reduces costs by removing the need for laptops, providing remote access to systems, removing the need for two computing systems where users work at different levels of classification.

The bootable operating system, held on the USB stick, is customised to contain applications and security functionality. The strength of the solution comes from the encryption of the media on which the operating system is stored, and in order to boot the operating system into its preconfigured environment the user must be authenticated. Combined with a VPN and endpoint security checks Trusted Client can be assured with a high level of trust. Additionally Trusted Client can be configured for specific business needs and has been optimised to work with Juniper Networks Secure Access VPN.

Rolf Almroth, Sales Director at Box Play Business Solutions AB said, "Trusted Client has already been piloted at a major UK Government site, and we are very excited about its potential to revolutionize the way that security is provided to mobile workers. BeCrypt has recognized the need for an inexpensive, mobile environment which has the flexibility to suit all mobile users, while maintaining the confidentiality and integrity of the environment through authentication."

Box Play Business Solutions has been BeCrypt's reseller in the Nordic Area's its full range of data security solutions for three years.
