MXI Security announced the availability of USB drive authentication technology leveraging Common Access Card and Personal Identity Verification cards. Used in conjunction with secure portable storage devices from the two companies, the new technology provides the U.S. government protection for portable data.
MXI Security’s new technology, available as a module for McAfee’s ePolicy Orchestrator, enables organizations to use existing or planned CAC/PIV infrastructure as a way of identifying their users to MXI Security or McAfee encrypted USB drives using their government issued smart cards.
Aside from the new CAC/PIV technology, McAfee’s offers organizations a central network management solution that enables government IT departments full control over their secure portable storage devices.
Other MXI Security modules deliver features such as granular security policies, user self-provisioning, and user self-rescue that greatly enhance deployability and scalability. In addition, the ability to restrict devices to trusted networks, remotely kill rogue devices, and have USB drives perform antivirus self-scans provides additional security.
