Intrinsic-ID Brings New Level Of Data Security To Dropbox With Its Saturnus Secure Cloud Product

Saturnus is a cloud security solution that combines hardware and software to enable secure data access

EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, November 20, 2013 – Intrinsic-ID today announced the availability of Saturnus® for Dropbox users. This new application enables enterprises to easily and securely protect digital assets stored and shared in the cloud. Saturnus brings a professional level of security to enterprise users via software and a USB token. With Saturnus, enterprises and governments can apply the necessary data protection to be compliant with laws and regulations more easily and cost-effectively. Plus, Saturnus keeps data in the cloud safe from prying eyes as there are no security backdoors in the system.

"With a billion files synched every day via Dropbox, the industry is clearly moving to a "sync and share" model, which provides greater flexibility and ease of use but also presents bigger security risks," said Pim Tuyls, CEO of Intrinsic-ID. "Our announcement today takes this working paradigm to a new level by making security a seamless part of the equation. With our solution, users can easily 'secure, synch and share' their data and enterprises can be confident that the data is safe."

Saturnus is a cloud security solution that combines hardware and software to enable secure data access anytime, anywhere. Saturnus is available to professional and enterprise users to protect data stored and shared via Dropbox today. With Saturnus, files are encrypted before they leave the device and are uploaded to the cloud. The encryption keys are generated and managed inside a (USB) hardware security token plugged into the user device. What differentiates the Saturnus solution is that the security is in the control of the end user and anchored both in the hardware and the software by means of private and local keys.

Saturnus is ideal for enterprises as it makes secure data access easy to manage and implement. The USB tokens can be handed out to employees, just like a badge to enter the building. Saturnus allows file-by-file encryption and sharing, so users can select the specific data they want to secure. Cloud storage and sharing is easy, intuitive, fast and now additionally safe. Files are synchronized automatically and security runs transparently in the background.

The Saturnus Promotion Bundle is available immediately for enterprises via resellers and can be ordered from the Intrinsic-ID corporate website www.intrinsic-id.com for 59,99 Euro (excl. VAT). The bundle includes one USB token and a three-year license of Saturnus software. Currently both Android 4.x and Windows XP/7 devices are supported. The company is actively building its distribution channel so interested resellers should contact the company.

An Extra Layer of Protection

Saturnus leverages the Hardware Intrinsic Security&trade technology (HIS) developed and patented by Intrinsic-ID. HIS technology protects the secret keys used by Saturnus and adds an extra layer of protection. Instead of keeping keys in software only, security is anchored in the hardware. Secret keys are extracted from the hardware properties of the smartcard chip in the USB token, like an `electronic fingerprint' used to anchor the cloud data with the physical device. Since the keys are not present when the device is switched off, a very high security level is achieved. HIS technology comes with reference credentials and a proven track record in the smartcard, government, automotive, networking and telecom industries.

Intrinsic-ID is headquartered in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and has sales offices in San Jose, Tokyo and Seoul.
