A unified access infrastructure that works across applications and network layers is now needed.

WinMagic Introduces New Data Security Software

WinMagic Inc. introduces BitLocker management for SecureDoc data security software, which manages encrypted data at rest. WinMagic is enabling customers to secure data in ways that are compatible with the most advanced storage approaches and common operating systems, without experiencing any of the hassles typically associated with encryption management.

With availability scheduled for April 2014, the enhancements to SecureDoc provide customers with robust data encryption and security support in the industry, with features such as:

  • Better Control and Security: Administrators can leverage existing network log-in credentials (instead of only a PIN) in addition to multi-factor authentication with smart cards or other tokens to lock down system access and guarantee high-level security of devices.
  • PBConnex: This feature in SecureDoc allows for pre-boot network authentication, authenticating the users via the local network. This also enables IT managers to reset users' passwords and make Active Directory role assignments without needing to visit each machine, and without users completing complicated password-challenge-response queries.

GlobalSCAPE Solution Available on Mobile Devices

GlobalSCAPE Inc. announces its managed file transfer solution will be available on mobile devices. Available this March, Globalscape's new Mobile Transfer Client will give employees secure anytime, anywhere access to corporate data, while giving IT numerous policies or controls for preventing data leakage or unauthorized access.

These controls remove the security and compliance risks of employees storing sensitive data on mobile devices by automatically clearing temporary files after they are viewed, and by optionally preventing files from being opened in other apps or shared with other users. MTC integrates directly with Globalscape's Enhanced File Transfer platform to give IT administrator's complete control over the files and information being shared by employees that are working remotely.
