DataLocker’s manageable encrypted storage device verified as Citrix Ready; enhances Citrix Networking and Workspace offerings

DataLocker announced on Tuesday that a select range of its centrally manageable encrypted storage devices have been verified as Citrix Ready, including the Sentry K300 microSSD OLED keypad USB device.

DataLocker portable storage products offer ultimate portability by combining 100 percent hardware encryption with plug and play simplicity. Add to this the control of centrally managing the devices by either SafeConsole or the IronKey EMS central management platforms and the customer can get peace of mind and at the same time meet compliance requirements. An embodiment of DataLocker’s ethos Simply Secure is the Sentry K300, which now is verified as Citrix Ready.

The Sentry K300 is the only platform independent, keypad, micro SSD to incorporate an OLED display to enable advanced security features. The display supports true alpha-numeric password-based authentication and a full-featured onboard menu system. With modern security policies requiring alpha-numeric passwords, the K300 is a storage device with full support for alpha and numeric characters. Users can use the visual, menu driven system to change passwords, set password policy and enable other security features without consulting a manual.
