SecuriKey 2.0 released
GT Security has released SecuriKey 2.0, bringing Mac users integrated AES data encryption to protect vital data. SecuriKey is designed to offer an intuitive interface that provides meaningful security without getting in the way. Setup is quick and easy, according to the company, while usage is as simple as plugging a SecuriKey Token into a USB port and typing a password for full access. Removing the token switches the Mac back to a login window to protect information from others.
"The SecuriKey Encrypted Volume protects all of your important data with industry standard AES 128-bit encryption. The encryption is quick and transparent, and it works just like having a second hard drive. Plus, the only way to open the SecuriKey Encrypted Volume is with your personal SecuriKey USB Key and your password. No more worrying about what happens to your data if you MacBook is lost or stolen. With SecuriKey, you and your data are safe no matter what life throws at you."
The software supports both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.
SecuriKey 2.0 with 128-bit AES encryption support for Macs is available for $130 for a single-user edition (and as a $50 software upgrade), while a multi-user edition starter kit is $250. SecuriKey Pro Multi-User provides meaningful IT administration in a simple, decentralized deployment and includes one matched pair of SecuriKey USB Keys for the IT Administrator to use for admin access to all the protected computers, while each individual gets unique matched pair of USB Keys – one to use, and one to keep for a backup. Each person can access his own laptop with his SecuriKey USB Key and Windows/Mac OS X password.
The Multi-User Starter Kit includes:two SecuriKey Admin USB Keys and two SecuriKey USB Keys for an individual user; additional users are $120. The Professional edition (for a single-user) includes two SecuriKey USB Tokens as well as a sturdy aluminum storage case.
