RedCannon Security Introduces Feature-Rich Solution That Combines Instant Endpoint Security with Enterprise Access Software
Ultra-Thin Client Enables Security Policies to Travel with the User, Allows Seamless, Authenticated Access to Enterprise Applications
FREMONT, Calif., March 15 / / -- RedCannon Security, a trusted provider of centrally managed, secure mobile-access solutions for the enterprise, today announced its KeyPoint Access product, the only solution available that combines instant endpoint security with a complete suite of enterprise access software on an ultra-thin USB personal security device.
"IDC predicts that the number of mobile workers globally will reach more than 878 million by 2009," said Vimal Vaidya, chief executive officer at RedCannon. "As the need for remote access to enterprise information grows, and the threats against these networks increase, RedCannon is uniquely positioned to provide an economical solution to increase security and improve productivity anytime, anywhere."
KeyPoint Access introduces a new approach to mobile computing by combining the convenience of browser-based access with comprehensive management and security features.
RedCannon's KeyPoint Access solution is a small, keychain-sized solution that instantly transforms any USB-enabled Windows workstation into a secure and trusted system. It provides the extra level of security necessary for workers accessing sensitive corporate data while doing business around the globe. KeyPoint Access protects from threats already lurking on systems, and greatly reduces the risks associated with mobile storage and potential data leakage on public computers.
"KeyPoint is a very attractive device for Citrix users in particular," said Steve Kaplan, president of AccessFlow, a RedCannon partner. "It enables Citrix users to log on with a trusted secure endpoint no matter which PC or laptop they utilize. By utilizing the Citrix Access Gateway to scan for the device prior to authentication, organizations can mandate two-factor authentication without requiring additional software packages."
KeyPoint Access stores cookies on the USB device rather than the host PC, prevents all Web tracking, and leaves no trace of the user session upon exit. There is no need to download or install any software or drivers, and for many users, it eliminates the need to travel with a laptop, as they can now carry the same information and functionality in their pocket.
KeyPoint Access is FIPS 140-2 Level 1 Certified, and supports industry standards for encryption and authentication, including RSA Security's SecurID® two-factor authentication capabilities. The product includes VPN, email and Web clients, and is also available with a direct interface to the RSA ACE Server or the Citrix ICA Server for seamless integration.
RedCannon's enterprise management capabilities allow organizations to centrally manage and track all mobile devices connected to the network, and to deploy, update, track, disable, lock out or destroy any number of KeyPoint devices. The policy-based engine allows remote control of automated provisioning, password recovery, user-change management and other features. It also produces reports demonstrating regulatory compliance.
The product is available now. For more information, please visit www.redcannon.com.
