Telework on a Stick – VDI Security on the Fly

EdgeGuard turns any USB-bootable computer, laptop, or tablet into a trusted terminal.  It provides secure thin client network BorderGuard authenticated access for telework, mobile use, from home, or for guest users.  Nothing that resides on the user system can cross over to the “trusted” network.  Nothing from the “trusted” network can cross over to the user system.  EdgeGuard is compatible with most VPNs, VDI environments, user authentication methods, SSL platforms, and other system architecture components without disruption to existing network infrastructure or operational processes.

Versatile Form Factors Support a Wide-Range of Uses

Virtual EdgeGuard: Installed software provides a stateless network session initiated by inserting an EdgeGuard security token. The user can then interact with their local desktop or the virtual EdgeGuard desktop. Because these desktops are completely isolated from one another, no data or malicious code can cross between them. Once the secure session is terminated, no transaction or session remnants are left on the PC.

Boot EdgeGuard: Secure sessions are initiated for any USB-bootable system by inserting a special Boot EdgeGuard configured USB device. Before the computer can be booted, the end user is prompted to enter a unique PIN that unlocks the Boot EdgeGuard software createing a stateless runtime environment in memory. This runtime environment does not alter or make any persistent configuration changes to the underlying hardware or to the device’s original software environment. The native operating system is not used nor is the local hard drive accessed in any way.
