Earlier this year, the release for the IronKey eUSB for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) was announced. This was very welcome news, as it allowed administrators to deploy and manage IronKey encrypted devices from a single console. Now, even better news has arrived: the IronKey eUSB for McAfee ePO is now officially certified by McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA). This means that IronKey eUSB users will benefit from the most secure and best managed data-transport solution available.
Now, the question on your mind is probably this: “Is it worth it to invest in a hardware-encrypted device that can run AV software?” In one word, the answer is “yes.” In case of a data breach, a business could lose so much more than the cost of the said investment. Ponemon Institute, the authority in the research of privacy, data protection, and information security policy, noted that the average cost of a data breach is $5.9M, while the associated loss of business was pegged at $3.2M. In yet another study, the SANS Institute revealed that data breach often occurred through malware, with unmanaged and unencrypted USB devices as some of the common culprits. You shouldn’t have to worry about these, though, with the IronKey eUSB. Through this, you’ll be able to enjoy both convenience and peace of mind.
