Working Together for Tighter Security


June 19, 2006 2:39 pm





Removable storage devices are a handy way to store and transport data, but the convenience they offer can also be a security threat to companies if proper controls are not in place. To prevent the improper use of removable storage devices and applications by end users, Novell and SecureWave are working together to develop and enforce security policies. To this end, Novell will resell the SecureWave Sanctuary suite globally alongside Novell ZENworks, offering customers a consistent approach to identity, that can not only simplify the administration and management of security policies, but also reduce a company’s overhead costs. This partnership will help companies further ensure compliance, enforce and audit application and device usage policies, and improve security on the desktop.

    During Brainshare in the identity management demo the demonstrator showed off how a USB key was prevented and allowed to be used on a company laptop based on permissions. Was the demo using SecureWave technology or does Novell already provide that solution itself? I hope this isn’t going to be another Border Manager vs Security Manager type decision. It is confusing when Novell shows it has a solution to something only to announce it is partnering with a company to provide something with a similar featureset.

    Actually, John, your first assumption was correct. The demo at BrainShare was done with SecureWave technology. We did call out the fact we were working with SecureWave during the demo. We also spoke about them as a partner at our booth.
