We're looking to start encrypting USB memory keys for staff. One option requied is the ability to put something on an encrypted key and give that to a client (someone not part of our company network) and that they could take the info off the key with a password.
The two options we're looking at would be
- Encrypt keys with endpoint encryption and manage with device control
- Use McAfee Encrypted USB keys and again manage with device control
Would external people be able to take info off the keys through use of a password in the above two options?
Thanks for any thoughts
both would meet your requirement - the EERM options in EEFF (Removable Media) allow sharing with non-estate machines.
the McAfee sticks are a lot simpler though - especially if you get the zero footprint bio ones. Then you don't even have to install software.
Thanks for the reply SafeBoot,
One thing, could the enforcing of passwords of EERM devices be managed by us (through ePO) and not the end user? The worry would be that people would just use their domain password when setting it and then giving that password to clients to allow them get the data off the key, not ideal
