U.S. software developer triCerat is launching Cliptite™ today to help healthcare professionals secure sensitive data sharing and prevent data loss when using Windows Clipboard. Cliptite™ is designed specifically for remote desktop and application environments in hospitals and other healthcare settings that require an additional level of security.
COLUMBIA, MD, USA (October 31, 2012) — To help healthcare professionals secure sensitive data sharing and prevent data loss when using Windows Clipboard, software developer triCerat, Inc. – creator of the revolutionary ScrewDrivers® printing technology – is introducing its Cliptite™ software.
triCerat’s Cliptite™ software is designed specifically for remote desktop and application environments in hospitals and other healthcare settings that require an additional level of security to prevent data loss when using Windows Clipboard, the integrated Microsoft component that allows content to be copied and pasted between applications.
Employing assignable encryption technology, Cliptite™ allows administrators to safely enable the Windows Clipboard redirection across multiple ICA and RDP sessions without worrying that the data will be copied to an unauthorized client system.
“When sharing sensitive data in the workplace, many organizations tend to either overlook the potential data loss of the Windows Clipboard copy and paste mechanism and hope for the best, or turn off the Windows Clipboard entirely to ensure data loss protection,” according to Andrew Parlette, Vice President of Product Engineering at triCerat.
Cliptite™ allows organizations to enable the Windows Clipboard securely without great implementation or testing burdens by intercepting all data before it is copied onto the Windows Clipboard. The data is then encrypted using a secure 128-bit key and subsequently placed on the Windows Clipboard as encrypted data. If a user running an unauthorized server or workstation attempts to access the Windows Clipboard, the resulting data will be scrambled and unrecognizable. However, when a user running an authorized server or workstation accesses the Windows Clipboard, the data will be transferred and decrypted to the requesting application.
“Regardless of industry, Cliptite™ provides a cost-effective solution that enables users to secure the Windows Clipboard over a remote connection and safely provide Windows Clipboard data sharing,” says Parlette. For more information, visit www.tricerat.com.
