Enterprise-level encrypted USB sticks SafeXs help avoid data breaches


Ely, England, 6 February 2012 – IT Governance Ltd, the one stop-shop for information security and data protection compliance products, has reported that it now stocks the new generation encrypted USB sticks - SafeXs. For a limited time only customers will receive the SafeConsole Lite free if they purchase the SafeXs FIPS 197 USB Stick Silver Package  here: www.itgovernance.co.uk/products/3662.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, comments, “A large percentage of the data breaches we witness are caused by human errors. Imagine how many employees transfer data using portable devices and how many USB sticks get lost. In the period May 2010 – November 2011 we carried out an analysis of the data breach cases which led to the UK’s Information Commissioner extracting an undertaking from the organisation concerned. From 85 cases, 16 cases accounted for lost unencrypted lap tops (18,8%) and 22 case for lost unencrypted USB sticks (25,9%).” (For further information see Alan’s blog)

“Non-secure devices should be blocked altogether.” continues Calder. “Any company that doesn’t do this is in risks of a data breach and can suffer heavy fines as a result. An enterprise-level secure USB stick, such as the SafeXs, by default, should be the only USB stick used within any organisation”.

The SafeXs is an enterprise-level secure USB with encryption hardware. It is the preferred government and enterprise USB stick, and the one chosen by the UK's National Health Service (NHS), with over 1 million already in use.

The SafeXs FIPS 197 USB Stick Silver Package is the ideal solution for small enterprises looking for a secure-USB solution all in one for an effective price. Customers who order the package now will receive a SafeConsoleLite licence for each of the sticks for one year for free, thus saving £150.
