SafeConsole is the only secure USB management platform for secure USB drives that has true password management – remote and local – and fully integrates with LDAP for on-premise installation. Also available as a service in the cloud.
Remote Password Reset
Reset passwords remotely over any channel. Administrators can get remote offline users back to work within minutes, without any loss of stored data. The short 8-character recovery codes are easily read over the phone yet maintaining the robust security of a 128-character code using a pre-buffer method. No data is lost and the process is protected against social engineering directed against the helpdesk. The user password is never exposed and there is NO master password. Read the Password Management Best Practice Paper.
Ensure that all data is protected by strong, compliant passwords by enforcing password policies on the devices.
Device Auditing – See Who Did What, When and Where
Device auditing makes taking stock of the entire portfolio of SafeConsoleReady devices easy as it creates an automatic inventory list. The logs then include unsuccessful unlocking attempts, device states and log-ins. This gives the administrator a full overview of all drives in use in the organization.
Detailed File Auditing – Achieve Compliance Requirements
Detailed File Auditing is an extension of the Device Audit. It allows an administrator to see what files have been copied to or deleted from the devices, as well as a trail of the files that have had their names changed.
Device State Management – Full Control Over Devices
As an extra security precaution when drives are lost, or to protect your organization’s sensitive information from access by former employees, you can remotely ‘kill’ rogue drives and erase them of all data. In the Device Overview in SafeConsole, an authorized administrator can set the device state to ‘killed’, ‘disabled’ and ‘lost’. Devices can later be recovered using the Remote Password Reset and/or Backup features. SafeConsole can also be set to handle the devices’ states entirely on autopilot. This will require the drives to return to base by connecting to the SafeConsole server within a configurable time period.
Inactivity Lock – Forgotten Drives Lock Down
Lock down a secure USB drive after a configurable period of inactivity. Forgotten drives that are left behind in a computer will automatically lock down according to the set policy.
File Restrictor – Restrict File Types to be Stored EXE, MP3
A white-list approach prevents the storage of unauthorized file-types. Rogue files cannot reside on a SafeConsoleReady Device as it only allows storage of file-types specified by the administrator in the SafeConsole settings.
Authorized Autorun – Stop Autorun Viruses
The onboard autorun-protection that chokes self-copying viruses such as StuxNet and Conficker – by denying unauthorized autorun files from residing on the drive altogether.
Write Protection – Set Devices in Read-Only Mode
With Write Protection, users can set their drive in a read-only mode when unlocking it on non trusted machines and thereby gain protection from malware trying to infect the drive or its content. It is also possible for an administrator to enforce this protection when a user leaves the company network ensuring that no malware can be copied to the drives and brought back to the company.
Sophos Antivirus for SafeConsoleReady Devices
The SafeConsoleReady Sophos Antivirus is deployed onto existing SafeConsoleReady drives by the SafeConsole server administrator and offers the device end-user a quick and resource effective, on access protection against malware on and off the corporate network. This is the first enterprise mature antivirus solution made available for secure USB drives.
Geolocation and Geofencing
Using IP-based location tracking, pinpoint the exact location of your encrypted endpoints anywhere in the world. With SafeConsole, you can also geofence your devices making them accessible only within specific geographic boundaries.
Authorized Autorun – Stop Autorun Viruses
To prevent the spread of autorun malware, SafeConsoleReady devices overwrite the autorun.inf files stored on the encrypted storage volume, choking the effect of viruses such as Conficker. Specify trusted commmands to enable authorized applications to autorun off the devices, allowing you to keep the benefits and convenience of autostarting working-tools while blocking gateways for malware infection.
Device User Information
Save time and pain – customize devices with user information for easy identification and secure lost and found.
By defining “token” questions, SafeConsole administrators can ask device users to enter unique information about themselves. The “token” information allows the administrator to create a custom message about the user under the About window to easily identify lost devices without requiring permission to unlock the drive.
Autostart applications that require a password to start can also make use of “token” information by assigning a token as a necessary password. This allows the application to launch without interruption.
The information is collected to the server and can be used to sort and search users and their devices.
Device User Settings
Configure device settings to tailor the SafeConsoleReady device to your needs (e.g. disallow users from factory-resetting their devices). It is also possible to enforce a user interface language and pre-approve the device warranty for quicker device deployment.
