Privacy In Public Places
It has long been recognized that the prevalence of mobile 'road warriors' presents a security risk to the enterprise. A typical corporate notebook computer contains confidential business information, ranging from sensitive business plans and financial data to key intellectual property such as engineering blueprints or software source code. As a result, numerous products have been introduced which will protect valuable data in the event that the computer is lost or stolen.
While these safeguards do a great deal to prevent data from falling into the wrong hands, they leave a significant security gap. In today's high productivity economy, business travelers typically conduct a good deal of work while on the road. Much of this work takes place in public places, while on the airplane or in a conference hall, for example. This inevitable and necessary practice exposes sensitive corporate information to all manner of strangers seated within the vicinity of the notebook user. What's more, this type of data theft is transparent and undetectable, thereby increasing the potential impact of the breach.
Rocket's innovative SecurityShades product is specifically designed to provide the notebook user with privacy in public places. By exploiting an LCD screen's inherent properties, Rocket.SecurityShades™ alters the display's contrast ratio such that viewers seated to the side or at a distance behind the screen can no longer discern its content . Best of all, this is done with a 100% software solution - no need to attach bulky and unsightly physical media to your screen.
