API Technologies’ Secure USB Control Hub Now with Remote Administration

news release imageORLANDO, Fla., October 18, 2012 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a trusted provider of RF/microwave, microelectronics, and security solutions for critical and high-reliability applications, today announced  the next generation EMCON® Secure USB Hub featuring secure remote administrative access.   The 4-port USB hub provides organizations easy to use administrative control of USB devices connected to individual workstations.  This helps guard sensitive data by prohibiting the use of unauthorized USB devices.   

The EMCON Secure USB Hub will be showcased at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2012 Annual Meeting & Exposition (Booth 4347) which takes place October 22-24 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC.

"The EMCON Secure USB Hub is a simple and cost-effective step organizations of all sizes can take to help protect against information leaks," said Peter Patterson, Vice President and General Manager, SSIA Canada, API Technologies.  "By allowing remote access over a SSL connection, administrators can now securely view or edit the hub configuration and activity logs; no manual configuration needed.”

The EMCON Secure USB Hub is locked into any existing USB port on a desktop or laptop. Port locks  plug into all remaining USB ports on the computer thus requiring all USB access to go through the Secure USB Hub. While in ‘administrative mode’ USB devices are then plugged into the USB hub authorizing their use. These USB devices can be unplugged and plugged back into the same hub and workstation without re-setting. No other USB device will be able to run on the workstation without additional administrative authorization. The EMCON Secure USB Hub allows control over common USB devices such as flash drives, web cameras, imaging and printing products and smartphones. 

The device has 4 USB-A style ports, as well as an administrator’s port. The Secure USB Hub is managed locally with a pin protected administrative key or via a secure Web interface. It weighs 1.75 lbs (.79 kg) and measures 1.5 in x 5.5 in x 3.7 in (3.8 cm x 14 cm x 9.4 cm).
