The serious problem with traditional encryption is that the protection of the device is dependent on the complexity of the password. If an attacker were to obtain an encrypted device, they would have as long as they needed to guess the password and therefore obtain the decryption key.
Conseal's unique Dual Locks™ technology ensures that the decryption key is not based on the password, nor is it stored on the disk, nor on the server itself. As a result the strength of the protection is not limited to the complexity of the password alone.
Trusted Computers are computers on which the device may be unlocked without requiring internet access. Computers are trusted after a device user makes a trust request which the owner then accepts.
How this works
You can Conseal literally any USB storage device. This includes memory sticks, USB pen drives, external hard disks, SD / MMC / xD / CompactFlash cards. It also includes all Firewire, eSATA and USB3 devices. Conseal is completely device and manufacturer independent.
Conseal USB is very small when installed (just 2 to 5MB) and takes about 1MB on the target device. During the Conseal process, Conseal USB backs up the contents of target devices. This allows it to purge the entire disk's surface of unencrypted data - vital for preventing the data from being restored using forensic techniques. It therefore temporarily needs an amount of free space equivalent to the amount of data used on the device.
