Overview:

The Data Security Challenge

Banks, brokerages, payment card companies, insurers and credit clearinghouses have spent millions developing security infrastructures designed to keep sensitive customer information from getting into the wrong hands.

And it’s not just about managing risk. Financial services companies are bound to comply with a growing list of data security regulations and standards, including:

  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)
  • State Financial Data Privacy Acts
  • European Union Data Protection Directive (EUDPD)
  • Japan’s Personal Information Protection Act

As the number of your mobile employees and contractors grows, so does your risk of data leakage and failure to comply with the mandates imposed by these and other laws and standards. The truth is, your compliance efforts can be compromised with startling ease if mobile employees fail to safeguard their digital identities, portable workspaces, and the customer records and financial data they take home or on the road. And as a 2011 Ponemon Institute study found, the cost of non-compliance is 2.65 times higher than the cost of compliance.

Avoid the High Cost of Non-Compliance With IronKey

Kingston helps you simplify compliance with military-grade and encrypted USB flash devices, but we don’t stop there. Our mobile security solutions protect digital identities and applications no matter where your employees take them. And because our centralized management platforms put you in total control of data access and use, you don’t have to rely on the diligence of the hundreds or thousands of mobile workers who carry sensitive data with them every day.

Kingston delivers some of the world’s most secure, scalable and reliable mobile storage, identity management and device management solutions, including:

  • encrypted flash drives
  • encrypted external hard drives
  • secure portable workspaces
  • identity management solutions
  • secure storage management solutions

They were designed from the start to work seamlessly together and create a cost-effective, end-to-end solution that you can use to reduce your potential exposure to non-compliance.

Features:

Deploy the highest standards of mobile storage protection

Kingston’s IronKey™ family of flash drives and external hard drives, along with IronKey™ line of hardened, tamper-evident flash drives, lock down sensitive data with an on-board, hardware encryption engine that puts a military-grade, AES-256 wall between unauthorized users and the drive’s contents.

Maintain control over data access and use, conveniently and centrally

The security protections built into Kingston’s encrypted USB drives are formidable. And by choosing from an array of scalable, intuitive platforms for establishing and policing your employees’ use of IronKey™ drives, you can ensure that mobile employees are using strong passwords and taking other measures to take full advantage of those capabilities. From a central console, set policies for passwords, application use, recovery, and more – across a handful of drives or thousands of them. Depending on the Kingston solution you deploy, you can also manage and update device drivers and applications, administer identity protection features, and create whitelists of approved IP addresses to control where devices and applications can be used. And if a drive is lost or stolen, you can even remotely erase it or destroy it.

Protect digital identities away from the office

When a mobile employee’s digital identity is compromised, your network, your applications, and your data all become vulnerable. That’s why Kingston offers strong, multifactor authentication (password, biometric and CAC/PIV) on Kingston IronKey drives. And for users of IronKey™ drives, Kingston offers enterprise-class identity management capabilities – combining PKI crypto services, two-factor authentication and strong password management – to shield identities out in the wild. Only Kingston integrates these sophisticated protections with encrypted storage in a single mobile device.

Simplify reporting, auditing and other burdens of compliance

Complying with data security mandates doesn’t have to be a headache. Use Kingston’s advanced reporting and auditing capabilities to document how, where and when users have accessed, saved or modified confidential data. And for maximum flexibility, Kingston offers you both premise-based management solutions (when device management must reside behind your firewall) and cloud-based management solutions (eliminates the need for capital investments in servers and other hardware).

Shield data and applications from malware

In addition to the combined safeguards of encryption, multi-factor authentication and hardened enclosures, Kingston’s enterprise-class mobile storage solutions come with anti-virus and anti-malware protections, either as a standard feature or as an option.

Don’t let security get in the way of productivity

Mobile data security involves more than just locking down data. Workers need the flexibility of working from any PC, and they get it with Kingston’s portable workspace solutions. These solutions, available on Kingston’s encrypted USB flash drives, add another dimension to mobile security by enabling employees and contractors to safely work from any computer – at the office, at home, or on the road – with a fully functioning Microsoft Windows 8.1 desktop environment that goes everywhere they do and features all the applications workers need. Hardware encryption and strong authentication keep confidential data where it belongs, and the portable workspace is fully isolated from malware or other threats that may be present on the host computer, keeping them out of your datacenters and your networks.

Empower mobile workers with simple, user-friendly solutions

There’s no need for employees to install drivers or other software to securely access their stored data, workspace or applications. Kingston drives come pre-loaded with everything users need, and they leave no trace on the host PC.

Recover from disasters without missing a beat

Power outages, severe storms, earthquakes, fires – any of these might usually impact your ongoing operations. But Kingston’s secure mobile storage and portable workspace solutions help keep workers productive even when they can’t make it into the office.

Benefits:

Minimize the risk of mobility

Financial services firms are rapidly transitioning from stationary workplaces to environments that empower employees and contractors to work from anywhere – at the office, at home or on the road. But without taking measures to secure sensitive financial data, customer records or intellectual property, banks, brokerages, payment card companies, insurers and credit clearinghouses may find mobility brings more risk than they anticipated.

Can you afford the cost of non-compliance?

Financial services companies face a growing number of regulatory mandates for ensuring customer data and other information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. From the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) and Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and multiple state laws, banks, insurers and other institutions face considerable penalties for noncompliance.

In fact, failing to comply with these regulations costs over 2.5 times more than the the cost of compliance (2011 Ponemon Study). And while fines and penalties can hurt, they pale when compared to the cost to your brand and your business when customers fear they trust you with their personal information.

Preserve data, and your reputation

IronKey helps you preserve what’s important. Our military-grade encrypted USB storage devices put a wall between unauthorized users and the data you need to protect. Choose from an array of IronKey solutions:

Complying with data security regulations needn’t be a burden. Use IronKey’s advanced reporting and auditing capabilities to document how, where and when users have accessed, saved or modified confidential data. And for maximum flexibility, we offer both premise-based management solutions (when device management must reside behind your firewall) and cloud-based management solutions (which eliminate the need for capital investments in servers and other hardware).

*What is FIPS 140-2 Level 3? A U.S. government computer standard that defines a high level of cryptographic and physical protection designed to keep sensitive data safe from theft or hacking.

**What is the waterproof standard? MIL-STD-810F, also referred to as US Department of Defense Test Method Standard for Environmental Engineering Considerations and Laboratory Tests, establishes testing standards to evaluate the durability of products, especially in extreme circumstances. IronKey devices are waterproof and dustproof according to MIL-STD-810F standards.
