How to protect your data from disgruntled employees

family_safeconsole

We hear about cybercriminals and data hackers all the time.  But another threat lies close to home and can be equally if not more devastating.  Sensitive data and corporate intellectual property must be protected at all times, even when it comes to employees.  Disgruntled employees with malicious intent can wreak havoc, as can those who unwittingly violate corporate data use policy.

So what’s an organization to do, especially now that business is more mobile than ever?  How can sensitive data be protected from disgruntled employees?

For starters, having a solid corporate data usage policy and clear standards on the front end is a given.  Privileged passwords that are updated frequently and limited access to data are two things to consider.  In addition, the administrator should ensure that any former employees’ user accounts have been disabled.  IT departments should be vigilant, monitoring for potential insider threats and being aware of activity that looks suspicious or out of the ordinary by anyone that has access to corporate credit cards, proprietary or sensitive business data and other intellectual property.

DataLocker provides many solutions for encrypting data, which greatly reduces the risk of hacking by disgruntled employees or outsiders.  Employers have to be able to manage and track data. This includes knowing who has accessed it and from where, and through which device(s).

When it comes to mobile security, all of DataLocker’s hardware encrypted products, particularly the ones that can be managed with either IronKey EMS or SafeConsole, can give you peace of mind as you protect your data, your mobile workforce and your organization. Unlike most portable storage solutions, DataLocker drives use hardware-based encryption for seamless encryption that does not compromise performance. DataLocker drives also have a self-destruct feature so that if a drive is lost or stolen, potential attackers will not be able to use brute force to break into them. This greatly increases the odds of your organization coming out of the whole experience unscathed. It is imperative that organizations efficiently and cost-effectively protect data by administering usage and encryption policies, password restrictions, and more from a central console. These tasks are made easy with IronKeyEMS.

With SafeConsole central management server software, you can instantly gain complete and granular control over all of your encrypted USB flash drives and portable hard drives.  Additionally, you will achieve compliance for USB storage usage, while enjoying full control and audit.

SafeCrypt (formerly SkyCrypt) allows users to encrypt data seamlessly at their desktop, and as a result, only encrypted data is synced to the cloud. Even if your cloud service provider is hacked at root level or your personal login is compromised, your files are safe, secure and impenetrable.

DataLocker is committed to helping you protect your most sensitive data, at your desktop, on the go and in the cloud.  If you are interested in receiving an evaluation of your mobile security, or to try one of our products, please click here and an account executive will be in touch.  You may also email us at sales@datalocker.com.

 

Why FIPS validated products are so important

datalocker-dl3-fe-encrypted-external-hard-drive-datalocker-com

DataLocker has been providing cutting-edge, advance encryption solutions since 2011.  Our government and military clients are especially keen on protecting sensitive data and regularly look to us for solutions so they can securely transport, store and share data. Lost or stolen devices should not be equated with compromised data!

One of the typical requirements for encryption solutions is that they be FIPS validated.  FIPS stands for Federal Information Processing Standards.  These standards were developed by the National Institute of Standards for Technology (NIST) through the U.S. Department of Commerce as benchmarks for security in government pursuant to the Federal Information Security Management Act.

Several of our products are FIPS 140-2 validated.  This refers specifically to cryptographic modules, such as our hardware-encrypted external hard drives and USB flash drives. There are four levels of security within FIPS 140-2.  (Read more about FIPS 140-2 security levels here.)  At the highest level, level 4, the physical security mechanisms provide a complete envelope of protection around the cryptographic module with the intent of detecting and responding to all unauthorized attempts at physical access.

So what makes DataLocker FIPS validated products unique?  Our DataLocker DL3 FE is the only drive on the market that utilizes two pass cascading encryption using two different independently generated random keys for unsurpassed security. And the DataLocker H350 has earned end-to-end FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validation (certification #2359) for the entire H350 External Hard Drive – not just its encryption components- making it immune from attacks such as “BadUSB” or “Equation Group,” which also target other components of the device.  In addition, the following DataLocker products are FIPS validated:

How Organizations Benefit from Centrally Managed Secure USB Drives

According to research, 76% workers plug unknown USB drives into their company PCs, compromising their network security and introducing malware into the system. Besides, almost 20% of 1,000 UK office workers interviewed also revealed that they have lost unsecure USB drives containing sensitive business information. These statistics point towards the susceptibility of our sensitive data in USB drives to leakage and theft.
Hence, it only makes sense to secure data in the USB drives through secure, centrally managed systems. While secure USB automatically and instantly protects all stored data on the USB drive, SafeConsole central USB management enables complete control over the organization’s SafeConsoleReady Devices.

Organizational Benefits of Centrally Managed Secure USB Drives

Here is how organizations can use secure centrally managed USB drives to protect sensitive information:

  • Centrally managed USB drives ensure the security and availability of stored data for users, be it organizations or administrators.
  • They help USB drives evolve into a complete portable computing platform.
  • Enable users to share specific information, rather than all data present on the USB, with intended users.
  • They protect users from unintended USB malware during file sharing.
  • It is the best means of secure file sharing over the internet, especially where putting in place secure emailing may be difficult.
  • Enable organizations to comply with the safety and accountability standards, even for devices present outside the network perimeter or are offline. This is achieved by activating the device’s complete audit capacities for file changes and device actions.
  • Enable organizations to issue portable virtual workspaces for employees on their USB devices, in essence managed thumbtops – this offers a cost-effective and offers secure work environment for users within the protected workspace.
  • Central USB management also helps organizations improve their control over their private data and limits device wastage with detailed inventory of all managed devices.

SafeCrypt (formerly SkyCrypt): Cloud encryption for any cloud service provider

DataLocker has a solution called SafeCrypt (formerly SkyCrypt) that allows users to encrypt their data seamlessly at their desktop, and as a result, only encrypted data is synced to the cloud.

Servers get hacked, secrets get leaked and people get careless.  The line that separates YOUR data from the rest of the world is pretty thin in the cloud. Enter SafeCrypt. SafeCrypt — the only FIPS 140-2 validated, military grade 256-bit AES encryption program, which can secure your cloud storage provider or local files. You can safely use SafeCrypt with Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Box, or any cloud service provider.

With SafeCrypt, files are fully encrypted to the highest standards at your desktop and stored on your cloud storage account. Even if your cloud service provider is hacked at root level or your personal login is compromised, your files are safe, secure and impenetrable.  Think your cloud service provider is immune to security breaches?  Think again!  Just last month, Dropbox reset all passwords that had remained unchanged since 2012 as a “preventative measure” due to a 2012 Dropbox security breach that has affected an estimated 68 million account holders (BBC News, 31 Aug 2016).

How to maximize mobile security in today’s world

Mobile security threats and vulnerabilities are and should be of chief concern for every organization. Employees move around and need to bring their data with them. If you care about your organization’s privacy, chances are you already stay away form online storage solutions.  Mobile security is not immune to terrorist threats (think communication apps meant to evade eavesdropping) or hacking, for example.  Credit card and data fraud, extortion and unauthorized use are huge problems and we see major companies falling victim to breaches.  When it comes to mobile security, all of DataLocker’s hardware encrypted products, particularly the ones that can be managed with either IronKey EMS or SafeConsole, can give you peace of mind as you protect your data, your mobile workforce and your organization. Unlike most portable storage solutions, DataLocker drives use hardware-based encryption. Therefore if a drive is lost or stolen, potential attackers will not be able to use brute force to break into them. This greatly increases the odds of your organization coming out of the whole experience unscathed.

An important feature that administrators look for is having the ability to simplify security regulation compliance by giving them control over drives deployed across the enterprise. In addition, it is imperative that organizations efficiently and cost-effectively protect data by administering usage and encryption policies, password restrictions, and more from a central console. These tasks are made easy with IronKeyEMS.

Central management gives peace of mind for companies–WHEN their users forget their passwords or lose their devices–Admins will be able to take action to remedy the issue at hand. Tracking and auditing usage is also a huge benefit. Also, it allows them to get out in front of any issue, because when (not if) devices are lost on one of our Secure USB devices it does not become a reportable offense like it does if the devices are not encrypted.

IronKey EMS

Protecting your data, your mobile workforce, and your organization is easy with the IronKey Enterprise Management platform. You can quickly and easily establish a secure storage command center for administering and policing the use of IronKey encrypted Workspace devices for Windows To Go and Enterprise storage drives.  IronKey Enterprise devices can be securely managed with cloud-based or on-premise management.

In today’s world, companies are managing devices and employees all over the globe.  A single console gives your administrators an up-to-the-minute view of all IronKey Workspace and Enterprise devices under their management, no matter their location. You can easily manage user status, device status, device location, and more.  Administrators can remotely disable lost or stolen devices by locking out users and preventing password access, and even destroy a compromised device by erasing every block of data, thus rendering it unusable.

SafeConsole

With SafeConsole central management server software, you can instantly gain complete and granular control over all of your encrypted USB flash drives and portable hard drives.  Additionally, you will achieve compliance for USB storage usage, while enjoying full control and audit. The mobility and productivity benefits of USB storage devices remain intact– without the risks of malware, data leaks and breaches. Define and control administrative roles to manage, track, audit and support your end users so that they can securely and efficiently perform their job function. SafeConsole (both Cloud and On-Premises) integrates seamlessly with Active Directory to allow for simple deployment of our secure USB storage devices.
