RedCannon Teams With RSA Security

Tuesday 3 May 2005 10:17 CET | News

RedCannon Security, has joined the RSA Secured Partner Program and will work to certify that RedCannons Fireball KeyPoint line of portable USB secure smart drive appliances becomes interoperable with the RSA SecurID two-factor authentication solution.

RedCannons KeyPoint instantly creates a secure perimeter on remote host computers for users wanting to connect to their network resources. KeyPoint provides users a systematic method of creating a secure remote session by combining a spyware scanner, stealth browser, secure e-mail client and encrypted data vault on a single device. Fireball KeyPoint is the first centrally managed USB mobile security device that meets enterprise compliance requirements for tracking and auditing, and extends an organizations secure perimeter to a broad population of endpoints that may not be under the IT departments control. The RSA SecurID system is the worlds most widely used two-factor user authentication solution. It is as simple to use as entering a password, but significantly more secure. Used in conjunction with RSA® Authentication Manager software, an RSA SecurID authenticator functions like an ATM card for a company network, requiring users to identify themselves with two unique factors -- something they know (a password or PIN), and something they have (such as an RSA SecurID key fob token) -- before they are granted access to secure business information. With the successful completion of RSA SecurID technical interoperability through the RSA Secured program, RedCannon plans to offer Fireball KeyPoint with a combined secure endpoint suite that will include the RSA SecurID software token client, spyware scanning, a stealth browser, a secure e-mail client and an encryption vault, all of which create a secure remote environment that protect users from such common threats as Trojan horses and spyware. KeyPoint would be the only product that will offer all of these features on a single USB device.
