SecuriKey for Leopard

GT Security today launched SecuriKey 2.1, adding support for Apple's latest release of Mac OS X -- 10.5 Leopard. SecuriKey combines USB token and password technologies with data encryption on the hard drive to provide secure, user-friendly computer access control and data protection. The latest revision of SecuriKey features the only integrated AES encryption and multi-factor authentication solution designed for the Mac, according to GT Security, which provides security for mobile data on Apple laptops as well as desktops and servers. SecuriKey 2.1 is available in Professional and Multi-User editions, working with Mac OS X Tiger/Leopard as well as Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

"Good data security shouldn't get in the way of how you use a computer. It should simply help keep you and your data safe," said Bennett Griffin, CEO of GT Security. "SecuriKey 2.1 is a terrific, easy to use solution that provides excellent security for mobile Macs with elegant simplicity."

The software works essentially as an 'ignition key' for Mac notebooks or desktops, requiring users to insert the token into any available USB slot and enter the correct password before access is granted to the computer. Removing the token automatically locks the system, and SecuriKey 2.1 includes the SecuriKey Encrypted Volume for improved data protection. Using industrial strength AES encryption to protect information, the feature functions as a fully encrypted hard drive that is only accessible to users who plug in the correct SecuriKey USB Token and enter the correct password.
