I work for a housing authority which is arms length managed by a local authority.
We have recently had software called PGP endpoint installed which will be used to lock down the use of USB drives. This is to conform to CoCO "Government Code of Connection"
So long as we put in a genuine request to their IT department we will be authorised to use a USB drive specifically on our 1 works computer.
However, we lose flexibility of being able to share large files and does not actually prevent users from storing personal data on a drive that does not have it's own password.
I was wondering if there was anything out there that would enable us to syncronise our USB drive to our windows account. Each 45 days our windows password expires and requires changing, wouldn't it be good if some how our Windows password also became the password for our USB drive which also expired after 45 days and required connecting back to the office computer each 45 day period.
I know there are lots of secure USB drives with thumb print and password facilities, however, we already have 100's of standard USB drives so to reutilise these would be ideal.
