CoreSight Announce Endpoint Security Partnership

CoreSight and Tudor Australia combine to promote the SanDisk Enterprise range of encrypted USB flash drives.
  • 23 September, 2009 08:01

<p><b>MELBOURNE, VIC : September 23, 2009</b> - Australian security specialists CoreSight and niche distributor Tudor Australia today announced that CoreSight have signed on as a reseller of Tudor’s SanDisk Enterprise range.</p>
<p>The SanDisk Enterprise solution suite provides organisations with encrypted USB flash drives used for securely storing files on a portable media. Drives also offer the option of on-board malware protection in order to prevent malware infection of the network via USB flash drive.</p>
<p>The SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise FIPS Edition v6.612 and v6.615 are Common Criteria EAL 2 certified and address a significant data loss/ breach issue faced by Government at all levels. This was achieved under the Australian Department of Defence (Defence Signals Directorate) AISEP program.</p>
<p>For CoreSight, a key attraction to the SanDisk technology is the centralised management capability available.</p>
<p>Anton Goldman, Director at Tudor Australia explains, “The SanDisk CMC (Central Management and Control) component allows IT departments to centrally manage company issued Cruzer Enterprise USB drives both inside and outside the corporate environment."</p>
<p>He elaborated, “By managing the full lifecycle of the Cruzer Enterprise drives, CMC provides continuous enforcement of company policies. This includes the ability to track and monitor activity beyond the corporate network. Management and control covers initial deployment, tasks such as password recovery and data backup as well as lost or stolen drive termination.”</p>
<p>There are smarts built into the USB drive itself which can be used on a pure “plug-and-play” basis. Rather than rely on users to complete a manual process, the Cruzer Enterprise stores all files in a secure partition implementing a 256-bit hardware-based AES encryption and decryption of data on request. Since the cryptographic key never leaves the device, it is safe from software attacks.</p>
<p>End users are authenticated with a password mechanism. This can be strengthened further using the inbuilt option to leverage RSA software tokens.</p>
<p>CoreSight spokesperson Aaron Miller said, “The first things we look for in security technology are the management capabilities and integration with other technologies and products. Good management increases security and decreases administrative workload. Couple with this the ability to integrate with other products and solutions, and it typically allows you to leverage the existing environment to reduce complexity and cost. We saw the SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise range as an excellent fit in both of these areas.”</p>
<p>Miller continued, “We’ve been working with Tudor for a year or so, and are very comfortable about their ability to add value for us and our clients. It’s something they’ve already demonstrated, and we expect it’s an excellent fit for us.”</p>
