What is vKey ®?

vKey ® is software stored on a USB key, portable hard disk, or BlackBerry that is bootable from any computer to create a secure and independent Linux and/or Microsoft operating system (OS) environment. vKey ®'s bootable OS runs independently from the hard disk of the hosting computer in a zero-footprint environment. Almost any modern Intel-based computer (PC or Mac) can be used as the host computer. With vKey ®, users can use any host computer to access their organization's data center and workplace applications without changing how they work or compromising corporate network security.

  • Problem
  • Solution
  • How can I access my applications and data if my workplace's site is offline?
  • A desktop environment can be customized on a USB drive, portable hard disk, or BlackBerry so that even if the site is offline, you can always access your critical applications from vKey ®.
  • How do I avoid having to authenticate myself on every PC I use? Reinstalling and reconfiguring every PC to access my corporate network is time consuming and complicated.
  • The complicated user-authentication process can be deployed as part of the vKey ® OS image so that users can carry their own portable-ID for secured remote access without further configuration and support.
  • How do I avoid accidentally sharing confidential information on the PC I am using?
  • The vKey ® working environment is isolated from the host machine. All data is written to vKey ®'s own encrypted volume, never to the hosted machine, and never visible without authentication.
  • How can I work securely when mobile?
  • vKey ® frees you from being locked down to your desktop. You can access your secure desktop environment at home or anywhere else, online or offline, regardless of network connectivity.
