SanDisk has been selected for evaluation of its Cruzer Enterprise FIPS edition secure USB flash drive for Common Criteria EAL2 certification under the data protection schedule of the Defense Signals Directorate, Australian Government Department of Defense. After the completion of independent testing and evaluation by stratsec, an approved Common Criteria laboratory, SanDisk’s Cruzer Enterprise FIPS edition secure USB drive is now believed to be in condition for an award of Common Criteria EAL 2 certification.
SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise FIPS edition is designed to meet the security requirements of government agencies and financial institutions, featuring FIPS 140-2 level 2 certification for encryption, a standard set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The encrypted flash drive imposes mandatory access control on all files, which are stored in a secure partition that implements 256-bit hardware-based AES encryption.
CMC, the enterprise data management software adds a higher level of control to Cruzer Enterprise FIPS edition by centrally managing the drive’s complete lifecycle, from initial user-deployment, through usage audit and reporting, password administration and data backup, to drive termination if lost or stolen.
