Gemalto and Utimaco jointly introduced an innovative USB device that features two functionalities in an “all-in-one” solution. Not only does it manage network identity credentials, but it also provides users with additional memory to securely store confidential data. Utimaco supplies data protection, while Gemalto provides the strong authentication software and the personal device. This solution, named “Secure Digital Companion”, automatically sets up once the device is connected to the PC, making it simple and convenient to deploy and use.
“Secure Digital Companion” is aimed at enterprises whose employees require secure remote access from any location and protection of their portable personal data. Its mass storage capacities enable employees to transfer and exchange confidential data within and outside the company, with the highest levels of security. Users do not need to handle specific actions to perform data encryption as this is done automatically, minimizing IT support and reducing total cost of ownership for enterprises. “Secure Digital Companion” will allow users to securely access their enterprise Intranet through OATH* compliant one-time passwords displayed on the device. It also implements certificates for digital signature and e-mail confidentiality.
