A SafeConsoleReady secure USB drive uses a password and hardware encryption to protect all stored information automatically. This technology ensures that your sensitive data is always kept private and that data breaches are avoided altogether. But it takes more than just a secure USB drive to ensure that your data is safe.
SafeConsole is the only secure USB management platform for secure USB drives that has true password management (remote and local) and that integrates fully with LDAP (for on-premise installation). Also available as a service in the cloud.

Assist forgotten passwords
Reset forgotten passwords using a secure, local self-service or a central help desk challenge-response procedure.
Get an automatic inventory directory listing all users (optionally from LDAP Active Directory) and their devices. As with all functioning inventory lists, this will limit waste of devices and assist you when assigning previously used devices to new users.
Full Audit for Compliance
Enforce accountability and assist compliance efforts by activating a full audit trail on all device actions and file changes.
Enforce your security policy. By ensuring that stored data is protected with a password that meets your safety standards. Limit or eliminate the risk of USB devices introducing malware onto your networks and much more.
Get users back to work
Re-create data from a lost device onto a new, off-the-shelf device by centrally pushing the existing backup package onto the new unit at the user location.
Centrally handle the state of the devices over the Internet, setting them as disabled or lost- even perform factory resets remotely. Disable a user in AD and their devices are automatically disabled.
Easy and Rapid Deployment
SafeConsole offers an easy and efficient roll-out scheme for both small and the largest organizations optionally connected to LDAP (AD). Administrators can authenticate to access SafeConsole with their AD credentials. Start with installing SafeConsole on your server and go on to deploying drives to users, and you will gain full management control from day one. Each unique device is registered to a specific user in SafeConsole and linked to the user in the corporate directory (if available). The all-in-one installation has the power to serve large device deployments in the thousands if required.
DeviceDiscovery Free Tool - Included with the SafeConsole Trial
Track the usage of all USB connected removable storage media within your organization with the free command line tool DeviceDiscovery. DeviceDiscovery searches through and generates a report containing all devices used within the entire domain, when they were last used and to which computers they have been connected.
