Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Burall Infosys has announced the release of B_Safe, a PC security system that allows multiple users to work on the same PC without risk. The system allows for the selective encryption of files for different users and also restricts Internet access. Burall used its expertise in Smart card technology to build the system. A card reader is attached to the PC's serial port and in conjunction with an installed software program locks unauthorised data. A system administrator can decide the degree of access. If the system was rolled out company-wide, an individual would only need a single key to use any PC in the building. Keys can also be programmed to allow access to others' files. B_Safe is expected to cost under £100 and will be available in the New Year. ®
