Lockheed Martin adds CoreTrace to IronClad USB drives to secure classified information

Herndon, Va., 30 June 2010. Lockheed Martin engineers have stregthened the security on its IronClad USB drives with a whitelisting application from technology firm CoreTrace. The application not only protects files and data on each IronClad USB drive, but also protects government and corporate networks from security threats.
The whitelisting application, named Bouncer, is designed to block virtually all unwanted programs from executing. Users or IT managers create a list of approved, verified programs, and Bouncer ensures that only those approved programs are allowed to operate on the drive. Bouncer keeps viruses, malware, keyloggers, rootkits, and unauthorized applications from installing themselves on the drive and potentially attacking internal networks.

"Government agencies and corporations using IronClad need to balance security with flexibility," says Rohan Amin, Lockheed Martin's IronClad program manager. "Simply locking down a drive might make it secure, but it won't give users the freedom to be productive at home or on the road. With the whitelisting application, IT managers can give employees the tools they need to get work done without worrying about what might be lurking in the background."

Administration of BOUNCER and other IronClad security features is handled centrally through Lockheed Martin's IronClad enterprise management service.
