Encrypting Removable Media

Device Control uses encryption to control the use of removable storage media. After a user is assigned authorized access to the encrypted removable storage media, the client provides transparent data encryption and decryption.

Encryption provides:

  • Tamper-proof media identification by associating the device identifier with the device encryption key.
  • Prohibited access to data stored on media when the media is used on a computer that does not run Device Control.

Ivanti Device and Application Control uses the Advanced Encryption Technology (AES) encryption algorithm to cipher the media with 32 byte (256 bit) encryption keys. The encryption process employs the Microsoft Certification Authority® for the Active Directory domain to deliver the encryption keys to users.
