VILLEPINTE, France and ARLINGTON, Va. -- Gemalto, world leader in digital security, and Lexar Media, Inc., a subsidiary of Micron Technology, Inc. (NYSE: MU), a leader in advanced digital media and accessories, today introduced the Smart Enterprise Guardian (SEG), a unique USB (Universal Serial Bus) device that natively incorporates industry standards for protecting digital identities and sensitive documents. The SEG combines Gemaltos .NET-based solution and Lexars hardware-based memory encryption technology to provide unrivaled secure mobility for SMBs and Enterprises. Gemalto is demonstrating the SEG at CARTES this week.
The SEG features an intuitive user interface, requires no software set-up and delivers the highest levels of security and convenience. Users can easily access their enterprise Intranet, transfer sensitive files and exchange confidential e-mails from any location and from any PC. Data encryption is transparent for employees, so users with minimal PC and security knowledge can make the most of it immediately. The SEG is highly interoperable with existing IT infrastructures, simplifying IT management and reducing total cost of ownership for enterprises.
The ecosystem surrounding authentication and authorization for Personal Portable Security Device (PPSD)* has tremendous potential for innovation and adoption, said Chris Christiansen, Program Vice President for IDC's Security Products and Services group. By adding secure portable data storage to PPSD, the SEG increases security for individuals identity and their personal information while on the move.
