USB-Based Technology Enables Business Continuity Solution Via Market-Leading SSL VPN

BeCrypt, a leading supplier of data protection and encryption products announced today that it has joined Juniper Networks J-Partner Solutions Alliance program to provide a solution which offers self-contained, temporary security for un-trusted hosts in un-managed environments. The solution leverages Juniper Networks’ market-leading Secure Access SSL VPN technology and Trusted Client, BeCrypt’s USB key-based operating system technology. The solution is particularly suited to government and federal IT infrastructure, as it can re-create specific levels of security accreditation on third party devices instantly with an encrypted workspace. It is also relevant for any corporate remote access strategy which encompasses business continuity and can be used to replace the use of corporate laptops completely.

Trusted Client provides a safe, configurable and bootable operating system and workspace for remote endpoint PCs via a fully-encrypted USB memory stick. Juniper Networks Secure Access SSL VPN platforms are used to create a secure and verified link between the remote endpoint and the user’s corporate network resources. Thin-client applications, email and Internet access, and standalone applications can all be protected when remote users need to access network resources from third party machines, which may not provide the required levels of security.

“As government and businesses develop disaster recovery and business continuity plans, this solution enables a simple, effective means to ensure staff can remain compliant, connected and productive in spite of enforced home working or temporary re-location,” said Dr. Anton Grashion, security strategist EMEA for Juniper Networks. “By issuing Trusted Client USB keys for use on home or third party machines in conjunction with our SSL VPN offering, network managers can instantly re-deploy their workforce without risking a drop in established security policies”.

“Increasingly, organisations need to deploy best-in-class solutions rather than point products in order to solve the complex challenges posed by security vulnerability, compliance and business demands,” said David Holman, chief executive officer of BeCrypt. “Juniper’s strength in the SSL VPN space coupled with our expert knowledge of data security technology, and our understanding of the IT security requirements of the central government and defence sector, creates a very compelling package for customers in every industry sector.”
