What SafeConsole means for your business:
With SafeConsole you can enable extended features, retrieve a lost password, activate audit for compliance and much more. The SafeConsole server software is accessed through a standard Web browser and can optionally reflect the corporate directory or organizational unit structure. Each managed DataTraveler securely connects over the Web to the SafeConsole server for configuration updates set to its specific assigned group.
A few of the SafeConsole Features included:
Remote Password Recovery
If a user forgets the chosen password needed to access information stored on the secure USB drive, a remote administrator can help the mobile worker. A secure challenge-response procedure brings back the locked-down encrypted data and gets the user back to business in a matter of minutes. 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.
Backup & Content Audit
A lost drive or an inadvertently overwritten file would normally make you lose hours of work. In the event of a lost DT4000-M or DTVP-M, an administrator can easily recreate the drive by sending its backup and settings to a new device. The continuous incremental backup is a transparent procedure that does not affect the users’ everyday routines or work. The recreate procedure is handled remotely and involves no end-user actions other than plugging a new DT4000-M or DTVP-M drive into their machine. The versioning of the backup information also makes it possible for an end-user to retrieve a file that was accidentally erased or overwritten. This can be set to be a self-service available for the user from inside the Actions menu of the DT4000-M / DTVP-M.
Application Publisher & Content Delivery
SafeConsole enables files to be pushed out to remote DT4000-M and DTVP-M drives as soon as they are unlocked. All sensitive data is exchanged securely using two way certificate based SSL authentication making Publisher an ideal way of distributing sensitive materials to a remote workforce. This opens the door to a world of opportunities. By distributing files this way you can be sure your work force always has the latest price-lists, the updated PowerPoint templates and the latest version of a customer presentation. When you need to send top-secret documents to a supplier, you can send them an empty stick and then distribute the content when you know the device is in the right hands.
Remote Kill & Device State Management
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’.
Simple recovery when the drive is found
Disabled devices can later be recovered with the Remote Password Reset-feature. Lost drives can be set to display a custom return-to-owner message. To lower support costs, lost drives are also automatically be marked as ‘found’, if they are later inserted into the assigned user’s local machine. All actions are logged for audit purposes and to confirm that the would-be data thieves have been foiled, the ‘awaiting disable’-comment will change to ‘disabled’ to validate that the set drive state has indeed been engaged.
