Government

Organizations are tasked with the challenge of complying with an ever-increasing list of legislative requirements and protocols designed to protect sensitive data in transit and at rest, including:

  • OMB M06-16 mandate
  • Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) mandates
  • Director of Central Intelligence Directive (CDID) 6/3
  • General Data Protection Regulation, designed to protect sensitive data at rest and in transit

Noncompliance can lead to loss of public trust and strict oversight or costly class-action lawsuits, and for companies that work with government agencies, noncompliance can disqualify them from working on government contracts.

Government agencies can use Kingston® IronKeyTM and DataTraveler® encrypted USB Flash drives to access data from anywhere. Federal law enforcement personnel can review and update case files in the field, while scientists, analysts and forecasters can access data sets from any location with a PC or tablet.

With these trusted Flash drives, contractors can work at agency offices while still having trusted access to data and agencies can maintain operations during disasters by putting critical data in the hands of key personnel.

For easy remote management, IT professionals can enforce access and use policies from a central console. IT can demonstrate best effort to comply with new and unsettled regulations, including the General Data Protection Regulation.

Health Care

Healthcare agencies must comply with data security mandates such as:

  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act
  • Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) security requirements for Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
  • Evolving ASTM Standards for Medical Device Interoperability

It’s vital for hospitals, healthcare providers, insurers and pharmaceutical companies to take the risk out of mobility and to simplify HIPPA and GDPR audits.

With Kingston IronKey and DataTraveler Encrypted USB drives, doctors can securely and easily access patient data from anywhere. Temporary medical and pharmaceutical personnel can gain trusted access to applications and records when on assignment or working from home.
Clinical trial contributors, managers and auditors can securely enter or review trial data at any location with a PC or tablet, while insurance claims adjusters, examiners and investigators can have unlimited access to records.
Organizations can provide their key personnel with critical data to maintain operations if severe weather or other disasters strike.

The IT department can enforce access and use policies from a central console and demonstrate best effort to comply with new and unsettled regulations, including the GDPR.

Finance

Financial services companies are bound to comply with an expanding array of data security regulations and standards, including:

  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA)
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX)
  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)
  • State Financial Data Privacy Acts
  • European Union Data Protection Directive (EUDPD)

The cost of failing to comply with those regulations is significantly more than the cost of compliance. And failure to comply can impact your business when employees can’t work efficiently.

Kingston IronKey and DataTraveler Encrypted USB drives can help financial teleworkers safely access data and applications from home. Banks, insurers and others can equip contractors to work in the field without investing in notebooks or tablets.

Auditors can gain trusted access to sensitive data when on assignment or when working from home. Claims adjusters, examiners and investigators can have access to data and applications from the field.

In case of severe weather or other disasters, organizations can provide key personnel with access to critical data to maintain operations and the IT department can enforce access and use policies from a central console.
