Pointsec® Media Encryption

Pointsec® Media Encryption automatically, and in real-time, protects information wherever it is. Whether stored on memory sticks, storage media or in transit -- Pointsec Media Encryption's transparent, strong, FIPS-certified encryption ensures that information is only accessible to those who should have access to it.

The use of removable media, such as memory cards and sticks, is increasing. Nowadays, huge amounts of sensitive information can be carried literally in the palm of your hand stored on a USB memory stick. Do you know how many memory sticks are in use at your organization? Do you know what information they contain or how that information is being protected? With Pointsec® Media Encryption's FIPS-certified, strong encryption ­ no user intervention required ­ information is secure whether stored on removable media, floppy disks, locally on a workstation or in transit via e-mail. Moreover, information is still protected when it leaves your organization. Recipients of protected information do not need Pointsec Media Encryption installed; with self-extracting files and stand-alone access all that is needed is the correct password; the software is included.

Other security components such as standardcompliant information deletion guarantee that information cannot be recovered after its lifespan. Central management enables deployment of Pointsec Media Encryption with the minimum of effort and Remote Help ensures users can access information even if they have forgotten the password.

Remote Help

Remote Help is a must when deploying security software to thousands of mobile devices. Pointsec Media Encryption enables the user to securely regain access via Remote Help if they are denied access to their information as a result of forgetting their password. Administrators and authorized helpdesk staff can help the user via a secure challenge/response procedure, enabling the user to quickly regain access to the information, re-set the password, and continue working. Remote Help does not require network connectivity.

Complete mobile security

Distributing information securely is always possible with Pointsec Media Encryption ­ recipients do not even need to have Pointsec Media Encryption installed. Information can be distributed in self-extracting files or with stand-alone access. A self-extracting file contains both the information and the software needed to decrypt the information. Stand-alone access provides the recipient with an easy-to-use wizard to decrypt the information. The wizard also enables the secure updating or deletion of protected information. As part of Pointsec's family of security products for the mobile enterprise, Pointsec Media Encryption provides the most complete, integrated security solution for removable media on the market.

Central administration

Central administration is a requirement for any enterprise, no matter what software solution is being deployed. With Pointsec Media Encryption, administrators can create, deploy, manage, and update their organization's security policy for removable media from one central location. This includes: which information should or should not be encrypted, password length and strength, and maximum number of failed authentication attempts. Central administration also ensures that the security policy is enforced.
