If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials — embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices — offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features.
This white paper discusses the advantages of using smart credentials for multifunction access; describes the hardware and software components used in a smart credential environment; and provides questions to ask when searching for a smart credential solution provider.
This two-part whitepaper will address some of the best practice approaches that you may wish to evaluate and potentially adopt in order to reduce the risk of USB devices becoming the source of a significant leak or virus infection.
Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.
