LOK-IT Users - Case Examples

Just a few examples of LOK-IT Users

The following are examples from a sampling of clients documenting the issues they faced managing sensitive data within their organisations.

Although the clients are diverse in terms of the services and/or products they provide, they all share a common theme for their approval and use of LOK-IT……data security, platform independence and ease of use.

CASE STUDY - UNIVESITY OF TEXAS - Why they chose LOK-IT to secure their data (and why you should too)

Apple
Apple was in need of a means for distributing sensitive marketing information both within and outside the company. This involved encrypting files and offloading them from workstations onto to portable devices then transporting, decrypting and using the data at other locations. This meant the portable devices had to be compatible with many OS’s and encryption programs. LOK-IT’s platform independence provided them an easy and efficient means to transport and work with their data in any environment. In addition LOK-IT’s on the fly hardware data encryption technology eliminated the need to encrypt the files using software encryption on the computer.  Apple also uses LOK-IT for secure data storage.
Apple Mac + LOK-IT
Bechtel
Bechtel was in need of a means for managing and transporting classified data both within and outside the company. Like Apple, this involved encrypting files and offloading them from workstations onto to portable devices then transporting, decrypting and using the data at other locations. LOK-IT’s platform independence provided them an easy and efficient means to transport and work with their data in any environment and LOK-IT’s on the fly hardware data encryption technology eliminated the need to encrypt the files using software encryption on the computer.

DSS (Departments of Norwegian Government)
DSS is the administrative arm for sixteen (16) Norwegian Governmental Departments all with varying needs for managing sensitive data. Although they too benefit from LOK-IT’s platform independence and data security measures, their internal security policy expressly prohibits the use of portable devices that run executable programs. LOK-IT’s PIN Pad user authentication is managed in hardware, not software, so no executable program is required. As a result, DDS standardised on LOK-IT as the only approved secure/encrypted USB flash drive for use within all sixteen departments.

GE Health Care - Read the full Case Study Here
GE Health Care uses medical devices that do not have access to the internet, and, even if they did, there is a general requirement not to add additional software to these devices (“zero footprint”). Hardware user authentication is required due to the variety of operating systems that LOK-IT will plug into and GE’s need to avoid having a dependency on any external .DLL (Windows) or .so (Linux/Unix).They download a unique token onto each LOK-IT as a form of a soft-token, granting temporary access to proprietary software. They much prefer having a device that does not have operating system dependencies than manage different devices that do have such dependencies.

Johnson & Johnson - Read the full Case Study Here
Johnson & Johnson’s sales force use portable IRIS scanners in the field to scan sensitive medical information at physician offices. They required a means to off load this data onto secure portable media via a USB port built into the scanner. LOK-IT was the only secure USB device that allowed them to authenticate the user via the PIN Pad on the drive (no computer required) and also meet their data security requirements.

Kaiser Permanente - Read the full Case Study Here
Kaiser Permanente implemented a disk encryption policy for all data loaded onto laptops and portable devices. Their training department determined there was no way to decrypt data intended for use on projectors in conjunction with their training programs. Accordingly LOK-IT drives are used and their IT policy was modified to waive the encryption to portable devices requirement.
Massachusetts Office of Auditor
The State of Massachusetts passed legislation making it illegal to store or transport any personal identifiable data on non secure portable devices. As a result the Massachusetts Office of the Auditor standardised on LOK-IT.
McKinsey
McKinsey was in need of a means for managing and transporting sensitive data information both within and outside the company. McKinsey has an internal policy to use hard disk encryption on all laptops and portable storage devices. This policy posed two issues with clients. One, being platform dependence, and the second, being the policy of many clients to not allow use of executables on portable devices. LOK-IT’s platform independence provided McKinsey an easy and efficient means to transport and work with their data in any environment and LOK-IT’s PIN Pad hardware user authentication met the ‘no executable program’ requirement of their clients.
Novartis
Standardised for all employees in US where secured, encrypted device is required.
US Congressional Budget Office
250 analysts/economists working at office, home and on the road needed easy to use, secure, encrypted drives that worked in many different environments
Other secure drives were problematic - clumsy on MAC or didn't work at all on various platforms.
US Supreme Court
Internal General use
US Department of Homeland Security
-Use by IT administrators to deploy hardware and software to all offices
-Use in Blackhawk helicopters to securely download surveillance video from DVRs

Issued to incoming dental and medical students due to patient information at times stored on flash drives.
