BlockMaster (www.blockmastersecurity.com) a leading provider of manageable secure USB devices, today launches SafeStick and SafeConsole 4.0, designed to provide organisations with the ability to push out portable software (including virtualisation), backup data and to effectively stop the flood of data breaches.

The solution has been designed to provide more adequate access control over USB flash drives, which are one of the main causes of data breaches, according to the European Networking and Information Security Agency’s 2009 report.

The new products incorporate several features to boost mobile productivity, whilst ensuring company information is completely secure.

Now SafeConsole server administrators also fully manage these additional new features for the organisation’s SafeStick devices:

Publisher - enables users to run a virtual laptop from any computer using a SafeStick secure USB device. The feature securely lets administrators deploy any software or content even when drives are in the field - a cost-efficient way to deploy solutions to mobile workers

Authorized Autorun and FileBlocker activate anti malware, which protects drives and networks from day zero malware threats such as those that abuse the Autorun feature in Microsoft Windows when USB drives are inserted

Backup - restores files if accidentally deleted, lost or misplaced by enabling drives to be re-created, which ensures minimal disruption to employee productivity

Also included is:

LockOut - prevents unapproved USB devices accessing the corporate network and provides the quickest solution on the market for port control of flash drives

Anders Pettersson, CSO at BlockMaster says: “We are constantly evolving our product to provide a simple solution to the complex issue of security and usability.

“These new features will not only give administrators complete control over portable software, but also peace-of-mind that company information is always protected.”

SafeConsole now comes in three licensing options which organisations can upgrade to without any downtime depending on their need:

SafeConsole Intro enforces the organisation’s password policy

SafeConsole Enforce includes the full range of policy enforcing features

SafeConsole Enforce & Enable multiplies the benefits of SafeStick and SafeConsole and enables all productivity boosting features

SafeConsole Intro edition is included in every purchase of over 100 drives to enable organisations to ensure all devices are protected by company set policies. This is the only deal in the market that provides a management console bundled with USB drives to give complete control over portable information.

Mike Bienvenu, Technical Director, Softek, comments: “SafeConsole is by far the most widely deployed USB management console across the UK as it is feature rich and easy-to-use.

“These new features give the power back to organisations as they constantly strive for more control over portable devices.”

Other licensing options are available immediately and start from £300.
