Enova Launches Enigma USB Data-Encryption Platform
The platform sports a host of security standards certifications and up to 256-bit strength encryption.Hardware-based cryptographic solutions provider Enova Technology announced the launch of the Enigma module, a USB encryption solution for enterprises, offering real-time full-disk encryption for a wide range of USB mass-storage-class drives. The module offers protection of data-at-rest to help eliminate the risk of a breach. Among the key features is automatic encryption where data is written to the USB drive through the Enigma module, and data read-out from the drive is automatically decrypted, and can also encrypt solid-state drives, thumb drives, Blu-ray, DVD+/- RW, CD-R drives and card-reader media, including Secure Digital (SD) and multimedia card, and is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux or Google Android operating systems.
"As the frequency and severity of data breaches grows, endpoint security is increasingly critical to consumers and organizations looking to secure their sensitive information. External storage devices, in particular, such as USB hard drives and thumb drives, are often unprotected and, therefore, vulnerable to data theft or device loss, Charles Kolodgy, research vice president of security products at IT research firm IDC said in a press statement. Hardware solutions that provide ease of use and comprehensive capabilities are a huge asset to both organizations and individual users in protecting data-at-rest."
