LONDON -- msystems (NASDAQ: FLSH), a leader in smart personal storage, is launching mTrust into Europe. mTrust is a complete enterprise solution that turns USB flash drives into corporate assets that enhance employee productivity and flexibility under strict IT control.
mTrust is designed to secure, control and monitor data carried on portable storage devices - inside or outside the network. It ensures that employees store information only on centrally deployed and managed secure mTrust ready USB flash drives and controls the use of other personal devices from CD/DVD drives to MP3 players and smart phones over various interfaces including USB, Bluetooth, IR and Wi-Fi.
mTrust is now available across Europe through msystems distribution partners. mTrust is a system-oriented solution to enable the IT department to deliver the productivity benefits of portable storage devices while protecting enterprise information, said Nimrod Reichenberg, director of marketing for enterprise solutions at msystems. Our new European distribution partners, including Avanquest and Global Secure Systems in the UK, will help msystems deliver the benefits of secured personal storage to European companies and help prevent further security breaches.
mTrust comprises three components. The first is the mTrust Ready USB flash drives (UFDs) with hardware encryption and tamper-proof security. mTrust Ready UFDs are used in conjunction with mTrust Shield software which allows organizations to create, manage and audit centralized policies to authorize trusted storage devices to access network resources, while limiting the use of other personal devices and interfaces. The third component is mTrust Manager, an enterprise management system for centrally deploying, tracking, managing and auditing the activity of information stored on mTrust Ready UFDs, even when it leaves the network. mTrust Manager also remotely manages passwords, backs up information, enforces device usage policy and even remotely disables lost or stolen drives.
More and more employees are bringing their personal storage devices into the workplace. This has created a widening gap in corporate IT security, according to Chris Thompson, Managing Director at Avanquest, a UK-based European mTrust reseller. For our enterprise security customers, mTrust is a comprehensive, system-oriented solution that fills this critical gap.
