AEP Networks, BeCrypt Team Up

AEP Networks and BeCrypt team up on self-contained, temporary security for untrusted hosts in unmanaged environments

LONDON -- AEP Networks, the leader in policy-based networking, and BeCrypt, a leading supplier of data protection and encryption products, announce a joint solution which offers self-contained, temporary security for un-trusted hosts in un-managed environments. The joint offering is comprised of the AEP SmartGate application layer VPN and Trusted Client, BeCrypt's USB device-based operating system technology. The companies have combined their technologies to create a solution particularly suited to government and federal IT infrastructure, as it can re-create specific levels of security accreditation on third party devices instantly with an encrypted workspace.

"This joint offering allows workers increased flexibility and agility as they can work securely from any computer in any location, including remote locations even via satellite," said Stephen Lewis, VP Business Development for AEP Networks. "By issuing Trusted Client USB devices for use on home or third party machines in conjunction with our VPN offering, network managers can instantly re-deploy their workforce without risking a drop in established security policies."

Trusted Client provides a safe, configurable and bootable operating system and workspace for remote endpoint PCs via a fully-encrypted USB memory stick. Its functionality can be customised to provide a thin-client, a range of basic applications, and/or endpoint inspection, as required. The media on which Trusted Client resides is fully encrypted. BeCrypt's Trusted Client solution has been designed to meet stringent government security standards and has been approved by the UK Government.
