SanDisk Cruzer brings SecurID two-factor authentication to secure USB flash drive
SanDisk Corporation has announced RSA SecurID software tokens from RSA on SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise USB flash drives. Now available for order, this “two-for-one” solution gives users a single device for secure data storage and two-factor authentication, an alternative to carrying both a flash drive and a separate hardware authenticator.

Cruzer Enterprise is managed by SanDisk’s CMC (Central Management & Control) server software, making it easy for IT managers to provision and monitor flash drives throughout their lifecycle.

At the same time, Cruzer Enterprise flash drives that contain RSA SecurID software tokens provide two-factor authentication capabilities for remote and mobile network access – requiring something users have (the one-time passcode generated on the drive, used with or without a PIN) and something users know (the drive’s password).

“This is an ideal solution for employees who need to travel light and yet be fully connected, as well as for IT departments concerned with data security and regulatory compliance challenges,” said Roy Ramati, Vice President and General Manager of the Enterprise Division at SanDisk. “Adding RSA SecurID to our management and security solutions for the enterprise is a major step forward in our mission: providing IT professionals with tools to enhance employee productivity through mobility and remote connectivity.”

SanDisk has certified interoperability between Cruzer Enterprise Flash Drives and RSA SecurID technology through the RSA Secured Partner Program, which enables interoperability partners to embed RSA technology within their products and solutions. The RSA Secured program includes a formalized certification process that puts each product through a series of tests to ensure that the end-user is getting the maximum available benefits from an interoperable solution.

SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise flash drives protect all files with hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption. Users are also required to create a complex password during the set-up process. The combination of encryption and password protection makes it extremely difficult for unauthorized users to access data if the drive is lost or stolen. Cruzer Enterprise – available in 1, 2, 4 and 8 gigabyte (GB)1 capacities – is also fast, with read speed of 24 megabytes (MB) per second and write speed of 20 MB/sec2.

CMC server software provides lifecycle management for Cruzer Enterprise drives, including centralized provisioning of drives throughout the organization, password recovery and renewal through the network, central back-up and restore, central usage tracking, and remote termination of lost drives. This means data is not lost when a drive is lost, and IT administrators can provision a replacement flash drive with user files stored on the network.

CMC is also capable of working with RSA Authentication Manager to remotely provision software token seeds and, if necessary, the RSA SecurID application itself to remote employees – reducing the cost of deployment.
