As the trend of networking marches on, an increased risk of data falling into the wrong hands or malicious attacks impacting on production and business processes seems only evident. You could say it’s a fight of good against evil. Rest assured - ECOS Technology GmbH is one of the good guys. The company specializes in developing and distributing IT solutions for highly secure remote access and the management of certificates and smart cards. ECOS solutions enable companies, public authorities and other organizations to create, extend or revoke their own certificates, connect with home office employees, provide quickly usable and cost-efficient emergency workstations when needed, and remotely maintain industrial plants safely and securely - the list goes on. Its flagship products, which are intended for use across a whole range of sectors, include the ECOS SECURE BOOT STICK (SBS), which is on show for the first time ever at CEBIT 2018 in Hannover.
The SBS was developed to comply with the RESTRICTED security level of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) - the country’s highest level for IT infrastructure. The device is designed to provide highly secure access to Citrix, Microsoft Terminal Server, VMware, View/Horizon and web applications within a protected remote access environment. By booting up the PC directly with the stick, a standalone Linux thin client is started to ensure the PC, PC software and the stick’s software are strictly separated. What’s more, the stick offers rigorous multi-factor authentication. If you’re eager to find out more, the security experts from ECOS are on hand at CEBIT to answer any questions.
