Zero footprint media encryption

BeCrypt : 14 August, 2008  (New Product)
BeCrypt now provide a solution to Government data encryption headaches with Media Client which encrypts removable disks and USB devices with zero footprint
BeCrypt’s newly developed CD/USB media/file ‘zero footprint’ encryption solution, BeCrypt Media Client will be available from 1 September. BeCrypt Media Client is currently going through CAPS approval and in addition, FIPS 140-2 approval is expected later in the year. The early availability of BeCrypt Media Client gives Government departments and other public sector bodies that need to adhere to Data Handling requirements an easy upgrade path to a CAPS approved solution. BeCrypt Media Client will be the first ‘zero footprint’ encryption solution for CD/USB media to gain CAPS approval.

With its suite of encryption products BeCrypt already offers solutions that provide protection for data at rest on laptops, desktops and USB devices suitable for Impact Levels 1 to 4 and Impact Level 5 (short term). BeCrypt Media Client with CD, USB media and flash file encryption extends BeCrypt’s solution to ensure the integrity of data and enable its secure sharing with authorised third parties. BeCrypt Media Client operates with a ‘zero footprint’ on the device itself so that authorised recipients can access data without needing to have the BeCrypt software installed, they simply need to successfully complete the authentication process.

Initially BeCrypt Media Client will provide CD, USB media and file encryption as a stand alone solution. However, subsequent versions will see BeCrypt Media Client integrated with a unified, policy based, client side data security solution with a range of enterprise management options. BeCrypt’s product road map includes a client side solution that provides data encryption (using FIPS libraries for commercial installations and Impact Levels 2 and below, CAPS approved DISK Protect Baseline for Impact Level 3 and CAPS approved DISK Protect Enhanced for Impact Level 4 and 5 short term), port control/end point security, and removable media encryption (for CDs, DVDs and USB devices).

Marc Hocking , Chief Technology Officer at BeCrypt said, “We have listened to our customers requirements and we work closely with the UK Government to develop workable and innovative solutions to meet their stringent requirements. With the development of BeCrypt Media Client CD/USB media/file encryption we are extending our range to cover most requirements for Government and public sector data security.

“Our commercial customers also benefit from this approach as they have access
to flexible solutions with the government heritage and all the checks and safety measures that this implies.”

A technical preview of BeCrypt Media Client is now available for evaluation with FIPS libraries. This will be fully upgradeable to the CAPS approved version when it is available.
