Memory specialist Kingston Digital Europe has announced a new partnership with security company Blockmaster.
The deal means that the two companies can offer a range of centrally managed USB drives, which makes it easier for users to protect information on the move.
“Kingston has been looking at partnering with a firm that specialises in USB management software as our customers have expressed an interest in secure USB management solutions for some time,” said Kingston’s product development manager of flash Steve Hall. “After looking into several companies in that market, Kingston concluded that Blockmaster would be an optimal choice. We are confident that the partnership will facilitate the sharing and development of the necessary technology to provide USB products with advance secure management to our corporate customers.”
Blockmaster is well known for its USB security solutions, including the centralised USB management software SafeConsole, which offers organisations the ability to remotely manage USB drives by resetting passwords, configuring password policy and activating audit for compliance procedures. Under this new agreement, Kingston will be offering its customers as centrally managed version of its DataTraveler Vault – Privacy Edtion, utilising Blockmaster’s technology to provide complete control over USB drives.
