Gemalto, a provider of digital security solutions, and Utimaco, a supplier of data security solutions, have jointly introduced a USB device that manages network identity credentials and at the same time provides users with additional memory to securely store confidential data.

According to the companies, the solution, named 'Secure Digital Companion', is aimed at enterprises whose employees require secure remote access regardless of their location and protection of their portable personal data. Its mass storage capacities enable employees to transfer and exchange confidential data within and outside the company, and users do not need to handle specific actions to perform data encryption as this is done automatically. In addition, 'Secure Digital Companion' will allow users to securely access their enterprise Intranet through OATH compliant one-time passwords displayed on the device, and implements certificates for digital signature and e-mail confidentiality, the companies claim.

Utimaco supplies data protection, while Gemalto provides the strong authentication software and the personal device for the solution. No financial or pricing details were disclosed.
