IronKey, Tresys team up for malware protection on USB storage devices

Integrates IronKey's flash drives with Tresys' File Sanitisation Tool

By CBR Staff Writer

IronKey and Tresys Technology have integrated IronKey’s secure flash drives with Tresys’ FiST (File Sanitisation Tool)to provide protection for USB devices and data from viruses or malware attacks.

IronKey said that its encrypted USB devices offer secure data-at-rest services. Always-on hardware encryption safeguards the data on the USB device, and allows only authorised individuals to access it. Its active malware defences start with a supply chain and provides clean autorun protection, read-only mode and trusted network restrictions.

Reportedly, Tresys’FiST is an appliance-based kiosk that accesses a USB device and its data in a virtual and controlled environment to safely handle malicious content without infecting either the kiosk or other USB devices. It conducts content inspection and analysis and detects, removes and stores (for forensic analysis) malicious hidden content, viruses and malware from USB devices.

Gary Latham, executive vice president of Tresys, said: By integrating our offering with IronKey’s secure line of USB devices, we are able to provide customers with a complete solution to protect against cyber threats.”

Steve Ryan, senior vice president of business development at IronKey, said: The risk of data compromise on the flash drive itself and the risk of introducing or propagating malicious instructions into an environment via USB are now obsolete. With this integration, users are protected. It is now safe to use IronKey devices to move data between highly secure computers and networks.
