PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

IT security for public authorities

Due to the professionalization of the underground economy, attacks on the information technology of public authorities, companies and citizens are constantly increasing. It must always be expected that employees will use a private data carrier and connect it to the official computer, which poses a high risk potential. Security measures, which are summarized under the term Endpoint Security, reduce the risk, but cannot cover all attack vectors. Secure handling of mobile data media in government agencies therefore requires two measures:

- the creation and announcement of organizational regulations and
- the provision of technical protection measures.

As a consequence of the experience with the security risk of mobile data carriers, the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) has promoted the conception and development of a removable data carrier lock. JANUS has now been available to the federal administration since 2011/2012.

With the highly secured JANUS data gateway, a security zone (perimeter) can be realized in the forefront of a network, in which mobile data carriers can be safely checked and cleaned. This firewall for mobile data media provides the following functions:

- Scan mobile data media and devices for malware using two antivirus scanners.
- Detect and, if necessary, disable autorun and autoplay functions
- Detection and, if necessary, deletion of potentially malicious files
- Conversion of common file formats into secure formats
- Import and export of checked/converted files to mobile data media or network drives
- Secure deletion of mobile data media
- Support for VeraCrypt, TrueCrypt, BitLocker containers, password-protected archives and crypto-USB sticks
- Support for the endpoint protection software "Data Protection" from the company EgoSecure
