Cryptzone: New Generation USB Encryption "kills" Lost or Stolen USB Flash Drives

GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - November 12, 2009) -

Gothenburg, 12th of November 2009 - Cryptzone is today announcing the availability of the "Kill Pill" functionality for its USB encryption solution, Secured eUSB. "Kill Pill" makes it possible for a user or administrator to, at any time through the Internet, lock/wipe the contents on a lost or stolen USB flash drive wherever it is in the world.

Protecting USB flash drives have become a high priority in many companies. With the new version of Secured eUSB, we can offer a new level of security which meets the current requirements for existing and upcoming information security laws in Europe, the United States as well as throughout the world.

Besides the "Kill Pill" feature, Secured eUSB contains a long list of new functionality and improvements in order to meet the growing demand for high security for businesses today. Among the new features are "Synchronized Login" to Microsoft Active Directory® and DCR - Data Content Reporting. Each USB flash drive has built-in intelligence to report in real-time,when the flash drive was created, what files are on the flash drive, where did the files come from (path and computer), what was done with the files and most importantly, what user accessed the drive and what did he/she do with the files. Additionally, the reports include an asset inventory listing of Active Directory® members that indicates exactly the number of USB flash drives owned, brand/model of the drive, when it was created and much more.

The Secured eUSB solution can encrypt any brand or model of USB flash drive and even deal with flash drives that already contains data.

More and more information are being stored and communicated daily with the help of USB flash drives. A recent study by Cryptzone shows that more than 6 out of 10 Information Security Officers worry daily about sensitive information ending up in the wrong hands.

"We have listened carefully to the market trends as well as our customers, and are now reacting by including significant value-add features that create a new level of high security for our USB encryption solution - Secured eUSB", says Peter Davin, CEO Cryptzone. "With features like "Kill Pill", and the improved way that IT & users can tailor the solution to achieve the organization's requirements, Cryptzone can meet the growing demand for portable device security".
