On the Edge: In brief

Have security, will travel

Multilayered security architecture makes Lexar Inc.'s new USB Flash drive suitable for enterprise use. Lexar developed its Secure Access For Enterprise/Personal Storage Device (SAFE PSD S1100) for enterprises and government agencies that want to let employees store and access data on USB Flash drives, but also want that data to remain secure and private.

Two major components of the S1100's security architecture are Lexar's Personal Storage Device-Lock technology, an embedded device access control technology that enables USB device locking, and onboard 256-bit "on-the-fly" Advanced Encryption Standard hardware encryption. The device integrates with Microsoft Windows XP, giving a familiar user experience.

A lush new fabric

IP Fabrics Inc.'s DeepSweep-1 is a multigigabit network surveillance system designed for national security and intelligence gathering, lawful interception of broadband data for criminal investigations, cybercrime investigation and network abuse detection.

DeepSweep could help agencies stay ahead of rising demand for high-speed network surveillance in an environment of ever-increasing network speeds, new broadband communications applications and an overall increase in use of the Internet and other communications networks.

The rack-mountable appliance comes with either four or eight gigabit Ethernet surveillance ports and surveillance components for e-mail and voice-over-IP use.

Better safe than sorry

Lieberman Software Corp.'s Random Password Manager Enterprise Edition makes temporary administrator credentials available to limited numbers of users, minimizing a critical IT security threat: users running with administrative privileges.

The password manager grants the appropriate level of privileges that Windows Vista users require to safely accomplish common systems maintenance operations.

The new Windows Vista includes the User Access Control security feature that demands that users provide administrator credentials before they may complete tasks such as installing applications and hardware on their PCs.
