MXI Security, Ceedo Introduce Secure Laptop Alternative Using Encrypted USB Storage

Ceedo's Virtual Workspace integrates with MXI Security's encrypted USB drives
October 12, 2010 - MONTREAL, CANADA and ROSH HA’AYIN, ISRAEL - MXI Security™, the leader in secure portable storage solutions, announced today that it has teamed with Ceedo Technologies, the leading provider of enterprise virtualization solutions for unmanaged PCs, to integrate Ceedo Enterprise with MXI Security's encrypted portable USB drives, that offer biometric authentication and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated AES 256-bit hardware encryption.

Ceedo Enterprise encapsulates a set of standard Windows applications within a pre-configured, secure and portable virtual workspace. When the device carrying Ceedo Enterprise is plugged into any Windows PC, it allows users to start working immediately – with instant access to office software, CRM, PLM and other essential applications, including one-click remote access through VPN or Citrix.

"Combining Ceedo’s workspaces with MXI Security's trusted hardware encryption on a secure portable storage device provides tangible productivity and security benefits to our customers," said Lawrence Reusing, CEO at MXI Security. "The availability of rich computing power on USB devices makes it all the more important to secure and manage these drives. The ACCESS Enterprise device lifecycle management solution makes it possible to manage MXI's high-capacity high-capacity encrypted USB drives far outside the corporate domain.”

Whether it is used for everyday work from home, or as a just-in-time disaster recovery solution, deploying Ceedo Enterprise on an MXI Security device enables businesses to provide their employees, contractors and partners with protected and flexible access to mission-critical business applications.

“We are thrilled to be working with MXI Security on delivering Ceedo's virtualization solutions on MXI's portable security devices,” said Uri Gonda, Ceedo's Vice President of Marketing. “Customers who choose this joint solution will enjoy an unprecedented level of flexibility in dealing with a variety of challenging IT scenarios, at an unbeatable cost-to-performance ratio."
