ECOS SecureBootStick® HE
With its specially designed hardware-encryption and numerous security features, the ECOS SecureBootStick HE takes the proven ECOS SecureBootStick CL to a whole new security level.
The stick provides highly secure access to a terminal server or virtual desktop infrastructure and web applications in a secured, encapsulated environment.
Any PC or Mac can boot the specially hardened ECOS Secure Linux operating system on the ECOS SecureBootStick HE. The internal hard disk is disconnected, so no malware on the hard disk will ever get a chance.
Switching off the internal hard disk ensures 100% separation between professional and private use of the PC.
The ECOS SecureBootStick HE not only provides the security of a protected and encapsulated environment, it also serves as a strong multi-factor authentication. The stick is coupled with a cryptographic key in the hardware.
