“The new GoldKey packs 64GB of hardened storage into a conveniently small and rugged token,” said Rog Billings, CEO at GoldKey. “GoldKey is the world’s first encrypted flash drive to support two-factor authentication using smart cards and Gold-ID in one device.”
From its stainless steel case to its waterproof epoxy, GoldKey with Flash is more durable than your everyday USB device. Inside, GoldKey with Flash is filled with an industrial grade epoxy that not only seals the internal circuitry water tight, but deters tampering and provides added strength.
When the GoldKey with Flash is connected to a USB port, a read-only partition appears, from which the encrypted drive can be unlocked – all without installing any software. Once the encrypted partition is unlocked, it appears as a regular flash drive until it is removed, which completely locks the data.
GoldKey’s patent-pending encryption key management technology allows each GoldKey with Flash to be registered to a Master Token. If the user’s PIN is forgotten, the Master Token can be used to reset the PIN and regain access to the data. Using GoldKey’s remote management features, enterprises can register tokens and change encryption user groups used to access local encrypted files and cloud storage.
In addition, GoldKey tokens with Flash fully support Gold-ID, GoldKey’s enhanced two-factor authentication technology which provides a trusted alternative to SecurID. Gold-ID achieves two-factor authentication without the need for OTP or certificates. GoldKey may also be used to lock Windows accounts, to encrypt files or folders stored locally, and to access encrypted online storage.
Available in 8, 16, 32, and 64 Gigabyte sizes, GoldKey with Flash supports both Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion operating systems and is available immediately.
