"The CyberKey II is an important piece of the CyberLock system, and it offers a powerful access control solution to businesses with key control problems and concerns about who has access to their buildings," said James McGowan, VP of Sales and Marketing at Videx. "With CyberLock eCylinders and CyberKey II smart keys, facility managers have the opportunity to implement an affordable system that is easy to install and can quickly provide the physical security and key control required."
Videx, Inc. will be showcasing the CyberLock System of electronic locks and programmable keys at the ASIS show in Philadelphia, PA, September 10-12, booth 730.

Wave Systems Corp. recently announced that it "... launched Wave Cloud, a cloud-based service for enterprise-wide management of self-encrypting drives (SEDs). The company's new subscription-based service introduces a game-changing platform for enterprises that wish to rapidly deploy centrally-managed hardware-based data encryption on laptops -- all without the complexity and cost associated with maintaining on-premise servers.
"SEDs provide one of the best defenses against data breach. Based on the Opal specification published by the Trusted Computing Group, the drives are available from leading storage vendors at little to no incremental cost from a wide range of PC suppliers, including Dell, HP, Lenovo and others. Solid-state versions of SEDs are also available. Advantages over software encryption include better performance (because encryption happens on a chip, it doesn't compete for processing cycles); faster deployment (unlike software, SEDs don't require an initial encryption cycle); and enhanced security (encryption cannot be turned off or otherwise compromised by the end user).
"Yet despite the advantages, the need for dedicated servers and in-house IT expertise -- along with tight IT budgets -- has hampered wider encryption adoption."
"Organizations are looking for ways to leverage cloud offerings to reduce the complexity and costs of deploying endpoint encryption," said Eric Ouellet, VP Secure Business Enablement at Gartner. "While the endpoint encryption market is relatively mature, deployment challenges remain. Offerings that can provide standardized, simple-to-use frameworks for typically cumbersome tasks could help accelerate growth in this segment."
