RedCannon KeyPoint Solo Vault provides standards-based, military-grade software encryption that allows end-users to maintain productivity in the field with the assurance that the data they carry and use will not be compromised.

In a recent industry survey conducted by the Ponemon Institute over half of the respondents admitted that they had copied confidential or sensitive business information onto a USB memory stick even though company policy may prohibit it. The study also stated that nearly 40 percent of respondents reported that they had lost or misplaced a portable data-bearing device.
"Due to their convenience and mobility, the use of USB flash drives continue to grow, with industry analysts predicting approximately 340 million USB flash drives to be sold in 2008," said John Jefferies, vice president of marketing at RedCannon Security. "KeyPoint Solo Vault may be installed on any USB flash drive to ensure that the data stored on these devices is encrypted and protected, giving IT professionals more peace of mind regarding security policy enforcement and regulatory compliance."
