Gemalto launches “Smart Guardian” USB Token for Data Loss Prevention

Gemalto-Smart-GuardianGemalto , the world leader in digital security, today announced the launch of Protiva™ Smart Guardian, a smart card enabled personal security USB device that offers digital data integrity and data loss prevention for enterprises. Smart Guardian provides nomad workforces with a trusted platform to securely access corporate resources.

Smart Guardian combines endpoint control and secure data storage for protecting sensitive information. It guarantees an unsurpassed level of security, since the encrypted data never leaves the Smart Guardian. Attempts to tamper with the device are detectable and intrusion attempts will cause the token to zero-out its contents.

In addition to providing the highest levels of security, Smart Guardian is remarkably easy and convenient to use. Users simply insert their authorized portable token and enter a passphrase to unlock the device so that any data transferred to it is encrypted automatically.

Smart Guardian provides two-factor authentication based on something the user has – the USB token – and something the user knows – the passphrase. This ensures that only authorized users have access to encrypted data, even if the device is lost or stolen. Smart Guardian tokens are easy for IT administrators to deploy and manage, and require no user training.

“One of the biggest information security challenges today is protecting the large amount of confidential data used by business organizations and government agencies,” commented Cédric Collomb, Senior Vice-President, Identity and Access Management at Gemalto. “The combination of endpoint control and secure data storage makes Smart Guardian tokens the ideal platform for protecting sensitive information and controlling how these are transferred throughout the virtual workplace.”

The Smart Guardian device combines proven secure smart card technology from Gemalto and secure flash technology from Lexar. Its management options make it easy for end-users and administrators to register new devices, update software on the devices, deploy protected corporate applications, and remotely block a lost or stolen token and destroy its contents.
