Saturnus offers proven Hardware Intrinsic Security and two-factor authentication to secure data in the cloud via PC’s and mobile devices
Intrinsic-ID, a leading provider of device-unique security solutions, will be showcasing Saturnus on the LSEC Booth (number 141) at InfoSecurity Belgium. Saturnus, launched in late 2013, is Intrinsic’s combined software and hardware, device-unique solution to protect data in the cloud. Two-factor protection, using Intrinsic-ID’s patented Hardware Intrinsic Security (HIS) technology, provides the highest level of security commercially available, as there is no need to trust a third party. Files are encrypted before they are uploaded to the cloud from a PC, tablet or mobile phone, with encryption keys generated and managed inside a USB token. Security is therefore anchored in hardware by means of private and local keys.
Intrinsic is offering a special Saturnus promotion for InfoSecurity attendees. Visitors are invited to try Saturnus for free by registering online at www.intrinsic-id.com/infosecurity-offer/ and picking up a Saturnus token at the LSEC booth. InfoSecurity attendees can purchase Saturnus for a special price of 59,99 Euro (excl. VAT) for a three-year licence. Normally, Saturnus can be ordered directly from the Intrinsic-ID website for 69,99 Euro (excl. VAT) for a one-year licence.
Intrinsic-ID was invited to join LSEC (the Security Consortium of Leuven) at InfoSecurity because the organization relies on Saturnus and endorses its use. Ulrich Seldeslachts, chairman of LSEC, said, “Our day to day operations involve collaborating on different sensitive documents on an international basis, with various partners in different environments and on any timescale. Being constantly on the move, Saturnus provides us with the freedom to operate, to access and maintain documents without the costs or complexity of running our own security environment. On top, we can rely on all of the benefits of the cloud, without being concerned about eavesdropping, loss of confidentiality or overall data loss thanks to the underlying ‘device-unique’ Hardware Intrinsic Security (HIS) technology.”
LSEC is an internationally renowned information security cluster that was formed in 2002 to promote information security and related expertise. The non-profit organization is supported by the Flemish institute for sciences and development (IWT) and has a broad membership base of over 600 information security companies and more than 500 individual information security professionals.
Intrinsic-ID’s data security and user authentication solutions seamlessly provide the highest level of commercially available security, in the most cost-effective way. Users gain total control over the protection of their digital assets. Whereas other options always include the need to trust a third party, Intrinsic-ID’s ‘device-unique’ solutions are based on Hardware Intrinsic Security (HIS), a patented technology, proven and used by governments, that enables the extraction of unique identifiers from the innate characteristics of each semiconductor. ‘Keys’ are only generated when required and do not remain stored on the system. In addition to securing electronic data in the cloud and on other electronic systems, HIS can be used to prevent identity theft; counterfeiting and cloning of systems; piracy of media content and software apps; software reverse engineering and financial losses.
