SafeBoot Extends Collaboration With Kobil With SafeBoot® for USB mIDentity -- the Secure Driverless Mobile Office

Secure Driverless Mobile Office Brings Extended Mobility to Users Without Compromising Security

NIEUWEGEIN, THE NETHERLANDS and WORMS, GERMANY--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - SafeBoot, a leading vendor of mobile data protection and access control technology, today announced the release of SafeBoot® for USB mIDentity. SafeBoot for USB mIDentity is the newest addition to the SafeBoot USB line of devices, and is an OEM version of the Kobil mIDentity Basic. Kobil is a SafeBoot Certified Token Partner whereby select Kobil products seamlessly integrate with SafeBoot.

SafeBoot® for USB devices are secure, portable storage devices that provide strong user access control and transparently encrypt all data stored on them, ensuring that sensitive data remains secure wherever it travels. SafeBoot for USB mIDentity combines this technology with a smart card which can provide and store encryption keys and digital certificates. This, combined with the ability to launch applications, provides a secure, driverless mobile office with no need for a user to have administration rights; and a zero-footprint -- leaving no trace on the host computer.

"In today's mobile business environment, there is an enormous demand for secure data storage on USB devices. This product is much more," said SafeBoot Product Manager Tom de Jongh. "It is a secure, driverless mobile office in your pocket that brings the highest level of mobility to your users without compromising security. It makes the SafeBoot for USB range even more comprehensive."

SafeBoot for USB mIDentity provides secure data storage as all data stored on the device is encrypted and therefore will remain secure, even in the case of loss or theft. Strong authentication technology requires a user to have a proper smart card (possession) and PIN (knowledge) in order to authenticate the user and grant access to applications and data. SafeBoot for USB mIDentity ensures secure, remote access to the company network in a secure way -- from any Internet-connected PC in the world.

"Kobil is happy to work with SafeBoot, a logical step after signing the reseller agreement earlier this year," states Dr. Andreas Meyer, vice president of sales and marketing for Kobil. "Kobil is eager to enhance the well-working SafeBoot channel to bring the product to the market worldwide."
