Can a flash drive be de-crypted without administrative rights?
Posted on 2008-02-07
Our company is looking to buy flash drives to provide for the end users. We want to be able to encrypt or password protect these flash drives. We have tested encryption software such as TrueCrypt and Private Disk. We have also looked at devices with the encryption software built into the device such as the Lexar Secure II.
So far all the software and the flash drives we have used require the user to have administrator privileges on the computer to run or access the drive. Because we don't want to give the users Administrator privileges on our computers in the field and many users may not have adminrator privileges on computers they might be working on such as a library, we want to find something that doesn't require this level of rights, yet will still encrypt or password protect the data.
Is there a hardware or software package that will encrypt a flash drive and not require administrative privileges on a new computer after the encryption.
