Flexxon Offers Data Security Key

Organizations can use the Flexxon Xsign hardware security key to protect against unauthorized access to their sensitive data, according to the company.

Xsign is now available through the Flexxon eStore, Digikey and Flexxon's global partners.

How Flexxon Xsign Works

With Xsign, organizations in healthcare, finance and other highly regulated industries can control access to their data, Flexxon noted.

Xsign consists of an encrypted key that utilizes data scrambling and hash algorithms concealed in a reserved partition, Flexxon stated. It features key strings that can be accessed by a key manager via custom software access points. These strings let organizations grant access to a unique key after a user passes an initial password check.

Xsign includes a tool and software development kit (SDK) that organizations can use to integrate it into their applications and "leverage its security features without significant technical hurdles," Flexxon said.

Organizations Can Use Xsign with Other Flexxon Products

Xsign is "part of [Flexxon's] growing security and confidentiality product line," CEO Camellia Chan said.

When Xsign is used with the X-Mask memory card, X-PHY solid state drive and other Flexxon products, organizations can reap the benefits of multi-layered and multi-format data security, Chan noted.
