Know the functions and features of KeyArmor.

KeyArmor provides protection against viral and malware threats while securely encrypting files stored on the USB flash drive. With the integrated anti-malware detection and remediation, viruses and malicious softwares are prevented from attacking the data transferred and stored on the KeyArmor drive. This is an independent function of KeyArmor, not requiring the existence or utilization of anti-malware from the data source device. KeyArmor provides detailed auditing and logging relating to the anti-malware component, including version control, update integrity, update frequency, and file status.

KeyArmor's encryption key is stored securely and remotely on the Endpoint Encryption PolicyServer for secure escrow and recovery. It does not corrupt or cause loss of data during the encryption or decryption process.

As a hardware-based encryption product there is no way to decrypt the KeyArmor device itself. As files are moved or copied off a device they will be decrypted and available for use on a host machine. As defined by policy, enterprise administrators can be enabled to access any device within an enterprise.

After a client registers a KeyArmor device in the environment to the PolicyServer, only client defined users can authenticate to and access a device.
