Becrypt Announces IronKey Partnership to Provide Highly Secure Mobile Working Through a Single Secure Portable Device

Partnership Combines Becrypt's Trusted Client Software and IronKey's Secure Portable Device

BOSTON, MA and LONDON--(Marketwire - February 24, 2010) -  Becrypt, a leading provider of information assurance solutions, has today announced its intent to integrate its Trusted Client solution with IronKey's secure portable devices, providing a bootable, trusted computing environment that enables mobile workers to have secure access to corporate data and networks from managed and unmanaged PCs.

"IronKey is all about secure, portable computing with an open framework for partners to integrate synergistic applications," said Steve Ryan, senior vice president business development, IronKey. "By partnering with Becrypt, the combined solution brings to the global marketplace a secure centrally managed solution for mobile and teleworkers."

"We chose IronKey due to its platform, offering security and optimization for virtualized environments. This partnership provides an extra level of security and peace of mind for CIOs who face increasing pressures of employees requiring extra mobility while having continual access to networks," said Bernard Parsons, CEO, Becrypt. "Now, remote workers can access networks easily and securely and they can safely store data by simply carrying the IronKey with them."

Trusted Client is a cost-effective, secure mobility solution that uses its own hardened and encrypted operating system. It solves the problem of allowing unmanaged machines to access corporate networks. The user simply inserts the IronKey with Trusted Client into their home PC, for example, re-boots, authenticates, and can then access the corporate network, applications and data safely. The host PC hard drive and operating system are not touched so that no data can leak onto the host and no malware present can infect the network.
