System tackles remote data storage security

Security specialist Intrinsic-ID has launched Saturnus, an application which it claims 'puts users back in control of their digital lives'. The system allows users to protect data with their mobile devices before storing it remotely in the cloud.

The security in Saturnus is based on a two factor protection: something the user knows, a password; and something they have, a mobile phone, tablet or pc equipped with Intrinsic-ID's Hardware Intrinsic Security (HIS) system.
Saturnus is said to be broadly applicable, not only in applications such as teleworking, but also for remote diagnostics and treatments of patients and secure cloud storage.
"HIS technology brings innovative security solution for the cloud", said Marc Bertin, cto of Oberthur Technologies. "We are pleased to extend our partnership with Intrinsic-ID to support the Saturnus application with a range of HIS based secure elements, including SIM cards."
Pim Tuyls, Intrinsic-ID's ceo, added: ""The combination of the connected world and cloud storage offers tremendous new opportunities to optimise and create new business by enabling data access anytime anywhere. Most industry observers, however, agree that the main blocking factor for widespread use of cloud storage services is the lack of security for data stored in the cloud. With Saturnus, this is no longer an issue. Saturnus allows users to protect their data in the cloud while also being able to easily access it anytime, anywhere."
