I was tasked with finding some disk encryption software for the firm. No problem, I purchased licenses of Symantec PGP Encryption which does the disk level encryption of a laptop pretty efficiently, and also of USB data sticks just as efficiently. However, I have run into a snag....the USB sticks.
What they would LIKE to do...is to be able to take an encrypted USB stick to a client, plug it in to their system, and have the client copy data to said encrypted stick, thus keeping data security high. However, once the USB stick is encrypted with the Symantec software, it is unreadable by any system without the PGP software installed...thus making the stick useless for the purpose we need them.
Question is...can anyone recommend encryption software that will encrypt a USB stick (and possibly laptop HDD also), but would allow access (even if just "copy to" access) to the stick from a system not installed with said software? Perhaps using a passphrase or something other way to unlock?
