KeyComputing Unveils Xkey Security Edition for Remote Work

11/11/2004 - M-Systems' (Nasdaq: FLSH) KeyComputing introduces Xkey Security Edition (SE), delivering a suite of security technologies in a portable form factor. By merely plugging the device into any USB port, on either a familiar host or unknown PC, corporate users can retrieve their critical data and connect to corporate applications instantly, securely and effortlessly.

Users simply plug in the device and enter their password, then the Xkey SE behaves as an ordinary USB drive. Behind the scenes, Xkey SE seamlessly employs its embedded microprocessor, cryptographic core, authentication token, and a suite of endpoint security applications to enable secure, productive work from any computer. Xkey SE's multiple levels of security run unobtrusively in the background ensuring a superior user experience, while giving IT managers the confidence that employees are not only safely accessing web-enabled applications but leaving no trace of their corporate data or web activity.

"Enabling employees to work from computers outside the enterprise is both an opportunity and a risk to corporations," said Daniel Schreiber, managing director of KeyComputing. "With Xkey Security Edition employees can work from untrusted computers without unduly exposing corporations - ultimately ensuring IT peace of mind."

Designed with the enterprise in mind, Xkey SE allows IT managers to configure the device to comply with company security policies when employees work remotely, be it from home or elsewhere. Xkey SE also incorporates a plug-in architecture enabling it to integrate and host new software applications, making it a truly extensible platform for secure remote work.

"Corporations have expressed the need for endpoint security solutions beyond the perimeter of the enterprise to maintain productivity gains associated with working remotely," said Andrew Brown, Program Manager, European Mobile Computing and Mobile Devices at IDC. "Xkey delivers a cost effective, flexible and targeted solution for corporate employees to work productively, easily and securely from any host PC outside the enterprise."

Xkey SE features include:
