Original Press Release:
GT Security Debuts SecuriKey® Version 2.0, Featuring New Integrated AES Encryption & Authentication for the Mac
Award Winning Security Technology Provides Best Practice Level Security for the Mac
LAWRENCE, Kan., Sept. 25 -- GT Security, a leading provider of laptop and computer information security solutions for data protection and user authentication, announced today the launch of the new SecuriKey v2.0. SecuriKey v2.0 features the first integrated AES encryption and multi-factor authentication solution designed for the Mac. This combination of strong, two-factor authentication and AES data encryption provides total security for mobile data on MacBooks and PowerBooks and can be used to lock down important information on Mac desktops and servers, too.
"As the problems associated with data theft, unauthorized network access and stolen laptops become increasingly common, the need for a complete Mac OS security system has never been greater," said Bennett Griffin, CEO of GT Security. "SecuriKey 2.0 solves the problem with terrific capabilities that make it a robust, easy to use, and cost effective solution for companies and organizations that use the Mac."
SecuriKey combines USB token and password technologies with AES data encryption on the hard drive to provide totally secure, yet user-friendly computer access control and data protection. The product works essentially as an "ignition key" for the user's Mac notebook or desktop -- simply insert the token in any available USB slot, enter the correct password, and access to the computer is granted. Remove the token, and SecuriKey's Continuous Protection(TM) automatically locks the computer.
SecuriKey v2.0 also includes the SecuriKey Encrypted Volume for maximum data protection. The SecuriKey Encrypted Volume utilizes industrial strength AES encryption to protect important information. It functions essentially like a second, encrypted hard drive and it can only be opened with both the correct SecuriKey USB Token and the correct password.
SecuriKey 2.0 is available in two editions. SecuriKey Professional 2.0 is designed for fast, single-user deployments. SecuriKey Pro Multi-User 2.0 is designed for group deployments and provides meaningful administrative control without the IT complexities of back end infrastructure. Both SecuriKey editions support Mac OS X as well as Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Windows Vista support is planned for January, 2008.
SecuriKey Professional 2.0 and SecuriKey Pro Multi-User 2.0 are currently shipping worldwide. To purchase any of the SecuriKey products, call SecuriKey at 1-800-986-6578 or visit http://www.securikey.com/.
