FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- RedCannon Security, a trusted provider of centrally managed, secure mobile-access solutions for the enterprise, today announced its KeyPoint Data Leak Prevention Kit, a complete out-of-the-box solution for data encryption and USB port control. The KeyPoint Data Leak Prevention Kit includes high-performance Lexar Lightening USB sticks, pre-installed with the RedCannon KeyPoint Solo Vault, a software encryption solution, and includes KeyPoint Port Control for assurance that only enterprise-issued or authorized USB devices may be used in desktop or network ports.

"Due to their convenience and mobility, the use of USB flash drives continues to grow, and industry analysts predict that approximately 340 million USB flash drives will be sold in 2008," said Vimal Vaidya, founder and chief executive officer at RedCannon. "RedCannon is committed to enabling the secure use of these devices in businesses of all sizes by allowing for customized port control and ensuring the protection of the data on these drives."

KeyPoint Solo Vault provides standards-based, military-grade software encryption that allows end-users to maintain productivity in the field with the assurance that the data they carry and use will not be compromised.

KeyPoint Port Control helps organizations manage and control the portable devices on their networks and minimize the associated risks these devices can introduce including virus attacks, data theft and leakage, legal implications and productivity loss.

The KeyPoint Port Control solution restricts the use of flash drives on USB ports and may require the presence of RedCannon software on the drive. It is configured through a simple interface to define policies that allow only specified drives to be used. The product protects against the security threats posed by these ubiquitous portable devices, enabling a more flexible alternative to complete port sealing and blocking. It white lists specific USB devices and blocks unauthorized device use, while still enabling the ports for mice, keyboards and printers.

The powerful combination of storage, encryption and port control is available in a simple kit sold in blocks of 25 which includes high performance flash drives and all the necessary software.
