Portable encryption has become central to our ability to transact business on a global stage. And with that, having data begin and remain in an encrypted state is becoming the norm, portable or not.
SecureData, with a long history in data recovery, computer forensics and file backup, has an entire product line dedicated to secure storage devices (SecureDrive). I sat down to a post-RSA chat with Mike Vanoverbeke, SecureData’s Director of Product Management, to talk about portable secure storage and how it fits in with today’s modern business.
SecureDrive’s achievement of FIPS 140-2 level 3 and how it differs from the more-easily achieved level 2 (hint – epoxy is involved).
How these devices are managed with polices that range from geofencing (location-restrictions) to timefencing (time restrictions).
How mobile devices are creatively used to perform device authentication, as well as ensure that the device is locked when the user walks away.
Ease of use, which is a reoccurring theme that ultimately removes some of the final barriers that have prevented widespread use of encryption, even in interesting industries like legal and entertainment.
