SECUDRIVE File Server 6.0 Supports Enterprise Environments including Cloud

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Brainzsquare, Inc. has launched SECUDRIVE File Server 6.0 (FS 6.0), the latest version of their data leakage prevention solution for shared files. In addition to its protection for SMB protocol through the local network, WebDAV protocol through the internet is now supported as well. It means that FS 6.0 has now become available with public cloud services such as MS Azure or Amazon EC2 without the need of a VPN. Furthermore, FS 6.0 is compatible with DFS and Windows Server Failover Cluster environments in order to support enterprise system architectures.

For situations when files need to be transported out of the server, FS 6.0 provides an encrypted export feature where the file can only be decrypted on one of SECUDRIVE’s securely managed USB drives such as the copy-protected, SECUDRIVE USB Office+. FS 6.0 has also made sure to include data leakage protection features when sharing through a file or folder link allowing users to maintain their normal workflow with advanced security.

FS 6.0 proactively prevents unauthorized copying, printing, screen capture, and network transfers of critical files within the securely shared folders. In order to allow for easy implementation, preexisting users, groups, and shared folder information are detected automatically. Shared folders are transformed into ‘securely shared folders’ and user rights can be easily managed by user or by groups. All activity is recorded and the events can be filtered and sorted by file activity for auditing purposes.

“File servers are being used to store and share important information in many organizations. Unfortunately, though information security managers would like to increase security on their servers to regulate internal and external threats, many have hesitated due to security solutions impeding work efficiency. Luckily, SECUDRIVE File Server 6.0 will allow them to transparently and proactively protect against those threats while minimizing any inconveniences which are often coupled with higher tiers of security,” said Simon Kang, the CEO of Brainzsquare, Inc.

SECUDRIVE Sanitizer Enterprise Released

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 12, 2015 -Brainzsquare has launched SECUDRIVE Sanitizer Enterprise, an integrated disk wiping management solution that has been catered for enterprise environments. SECUDRIVE Sanitizer Enterprise (SE) makes it possible to manage the wiping process of disks may be widely spread or in remote locations, making it an effective solution for disposing or reusing old computers and hard drives.

By using SE, users are able to initiate the wiping process for specific disks via download. The process has been streamlined and provides a one-click wiping system. Once users download the software to their computer, they launch the program, select the disk they would like to wipe and click start. The administrator can preset the wiping algorithm and wiping policy for user-activated wiping which will wipe all data including the OS. Meanwhile, the administrator can monitor the process once the wiping begins from the management console. Aside from user-activated wiping, the administrator can also forcibly wipe entire computers without having to grant users administrative rights through remote deployment. All logs and reports which include detailed PC and disk information can be gathered once the wiping process has finished.

SE utilizes various military grade algorithms such as Department of Defense (DoD 5220.22-M) and Gutmann algorithms which can overwrite the data up to thirty-five times. Various disk types such as ATA/IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB, and firewire can all be wiped as well. Unlike many similar wiping solutions, SE ditches the overly complicated interface by not requiring any additional BiOS or OS setup, having the ability to launch straight from Windows and allowing for simultaneous wiping of hundreds of disks.

“It is important to wipe disks immediately after they have been decommissioned. When old drives and computers are sent to storage or outsourced to a disk destruction services, they are at their most vulnerable state. We believe that our product makes it possible to wipe disks the instant they are no longer being used. The user or administrator can activate the wiping process with just one click before leaving the office and have a completely wiped drive the next morning, ready to be moved to storage or transported elsewhere. It is incredibly easy to use and the entire process is managed and monitored as well,” stated Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

Sunnyvale, CA-October 14, 2013- Brainzsquare announces the release of SECUDRIVE File Server CAD, a copy protection solution for design file storage servers into the market. This solution is specifically designed to bring the strongest copy protection for CAD files and is compatible with various CAD applications such as AutoCAD, Adobe Suite, and more.

Design is an immense part of our growing society, and new innovations are what push us forward. Such designs are kept highly confidential within the company and designers are kept under a strict non-disclosure agreement until the release date. But what if the design files are leaked by an employee? Internal data leakage can severely damage a company’s business and reputation and companies need to be warier of how their design files are used and by whom.

SECUDRIVE File Server CAD is designed to prevent internal data leakage with a strong copy protection system for file servers. By applying this solution to the file server, data stored in the shared folder of the file server cannot be copied to the local disk or removable disk unless allowed by the administrator, preventing unauthorized copy. Other copy and paste functions such as Clipboard copy and paste, Save As function, and screen capture tools are disabled when the file is accessed. Administrators can also disable printing or customize printing with watermarks.

This solution also provides user identification and authentication feature. Only the users who have the client program installed on the PC are able to access the file server. With a detailed event log recording the time, date, user, file accessed, and action taken, administrators can monitor the status of their design files in real time. Files that are copied out with permission from the administrator are automatically backed up for security auditing purposes.

“SECUDRIVE File Server CAD is specifically designed to securely store design files and prevent unauthorized copying and leakage within a company. With copy protection, access authentication, detailed logs, and a manager program, company administrators can easily protect their important design files from internal leakage,” said Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

SECUDRIVE USB Management Tool and Server Released

Brainzsquare announced the release of SECUDRIVE USB Management Tool and SECUDRIVE USB Management Server, simple integrated management software solutions that allow administrators to monitor SECUDRIVE secure USB flash drives, set security policies, validity settings, and collect detailed event logs to prevent security risks, into the market.

San Jose, CA-September 3rd, 2013– Brainzsquare announces the release of SECUDRIVE USB Management Tool and SECUDRIVE USB Management Server, simple USB management software solutions that allow administrators to manage, monitor, and set security policies on SECUDRIVE secure USB products, into the market.

Many organizations today require their employees to use secure USB flash drives when using it to carry company data. But with the risk of security breaches and malicious intent from within companies, what administrators need is not only copy protection, but secure USB drives with integrated management.

SECUDRIVE USB Management Tool and SECUDRIVE USB Management Server are here to allow companies to more easily manage, monitor, and secure their company data that are stored on employee USB drives. They are only compatible with SECUDRIVE secure USB drives such as USB Basic+, USB Office+, and USB CAD+. The management software provides administrators with a strong, integrated management system that allow them to name and register up to eight USB flash drives at a time, and set security policies such as password requirements, offline policies, and auto-lock timers. For our copy protected USBs, administrators can set print controls and copy protection for their documents and CAD files.

These management software also come with validity settings that allow administrators to set a valid time period for users to be able to login to their USB drives or use their current passwords, and set the maximum amount of times a user is allowed to login to their device. Administrators can also save policy settings to be able to conveniently access them again when needing to register more secure flash drives.

Another feature is remote destruction which allows administrators to remotely render a USB unavailable. After checking off the box for remotely destroying a USB and saving the policy setting, the user will not be able to access the contents of the secure USB drive the next time it is connected to the network. This is especially useful for companies if employees lose their USB drives, protecting company data from being seen with remote destruction and password protection.

A detailed event log is recorded for all SECUDRIVE USB drives registered, allowing administrators to view USB serial number, user ID, product type, actions taken, date, and time. This aides administrators in monitoring USB activity and can be used for auditing purposes.

“Utilizing SECUDRIVE USB Management Tool and SECUDRIVE USB Management Server’s integrated USB management system, administrators can easily monitor and set security policies from their computer. When combined with the use of our secure, copy-protected USB drives, it provides complete security and prevents confidential company information from being leaked, whether accidentally or intentionally. With the power of SECUDRIVE’s USB Management software, administrators have almost full authority over registered USB drives,” said Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

With Auto-lock, users can set a specific time a computer can go inactive before the USB automatically logs out of the device. But be aware, data not saved will be lost upon logout. SECUDRIVE USB CAD also comes with password protection. Users will be asked to input a password upon their first login. If the wrong password is entered over ten consecutive times, the data on the USB will be automatically and irreversibly erased. This is to prevent data leakage if the USB drive is ever lost or stolen. Users have a choice of turning off printing completely, which doesn’t allow any file to be printed off of the USB drive, or turn on printing with a customizable watermark.

Users can also login as read-only mode. This prevents files on the USB from being edited or overwritten. With AES 256-bit hardware encryption and an embedded anti-virus vaccination, users can rest assured that their design files are safe from virus infections and malware. Detailed event logs are also provided with information such as date, time, user name, USB serial number, and action taken.

“Conceptual drawings and designs for new product development warrant a high level of confidentiality within a company. Companies, as well as employees today, have worried about loss, theft, or leakage of their designs whenever it is taken out on a portable device to show to cooperative partners outside of company grounds. Designers can now carry their precious design files with them on SECUDRIVE USB CAD and not have to worry about the security risks of losing their flash drive, unauthorized copying, or virus-infected files. This USB solution gives the users all they need to protect their precious data in a simple and effective way,” said Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

SECUDRIVE Device Control Released

Brainzsquare announced its release of SECUDRIVE Device Control, a new device access control solution for data leakage prevention for SMBs, into the market. SECUDRIVE Device Control makes it possible to allow or block devices such as USB flash drives, external HDDs, Smartphones and tablets from being connected to the USB ports of a corporate PC. The logs related to file activity in the allowed media are gathered and arranged for auditing.

San Jose, CA-August 1st, 2013-Brainzsquare announced its release of SECUDRIVE Device Control, a new device access control solution for data leakage prevention targeted for SMBs, into the market.

SECUDRIVE Device Control makes it possible to allow or block devices such as USB flash drives, external HDDs, Smartphones and tablets from being connected to the USB ports of a corporate PC. Even the allowed devices can be restricted to “read-only.” The logs relating to file activity in the allowed media are gathered and arranged for auditing purposes. For situations where the PC is carried out of the office, a separate security policy can be set and a log of all the activity that occurred will be gathered once the PC is returned to the office and reconnected with the manager program through the network. Once it has been installed on the PC, the security policy can be set to block prohibited devices which could help keep stop the infection of common USB viruses such as the Stuxnet virus.

Also, since smartphones are so versatile with its capabilities, SECUDRIVE Device Control provides multiple blocking options. The phone can be restricted to the only function as a removable storage device, or only allow it to use MTP, PTP, or tethering connections instead, thus allowing complete control over smartphone connections.

SECUDRIVE Device Control has the ability to deny or allow access to devices using the following ports in addition to the USB port: Serial/parallel, Bluetooth, network, WiFi, Printing, IrDA, CD/DVD, IEEE 1394, and even floppy.

SECUDRIVE Device Control comes in two versions, Basic and Enterprise. SECUDRIVE Device Control Basic is installed on a PC or server and is managed independently, therefore it is intended for smaller companies that have fewer than 20 PCs and industrial PCs which are not connected to the network. SECUDRIVE Device Control Enterprise allows the administrator to control device access and manage security policy by PC or by groups remotely, through the network. The administrator has a full view of all device access activity and can gather logs on files that have been transferred using the USB port.

“It doesn’t require any dedicated DB. It is easy to use, even for those of us who are not the most computer literate, meaning an IT specialist is not necessary. After installing it on a PC, a user cannot remove it unless the administrator allows it on the program. SECUDRIVE Device Control is targeted for SMBs. It is a must-have tool for SMBs to prevent internal data leakage and could be used along with our H/W encrypted and copy-protected USB products such as SECUDRIVE USB Basic, Office, CAD.” – Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

Secudrive File Server Released

Brainzsquare releases a new file server security solution with copy protection technology, Secudrive File server. SECUDRIVE File Server makes it possible to prevent files from leaving the file server due to unauthorized copying, as well as audit how the files are handled by utilizing a detailed event log. The software runs after installation and opens in the existing windows file server while keeping the current file server settings.

San Jose, CA- June 12th, 2013– Brainzsquare releases a new file server security solution with copy protection technology, Secudrive File Server (SDFS). SDFS makes it possible to prevent files from leaving the file server due to unauthorized copying and audit how the files are handled by utilizing a detailed event log, while keeping the easiness of file sharing among users. The software runs after installation and opens in the existing windows file server while keeping the current file server settings. SDFS supports Windows local and AD accounts.

A specific user who installs the client program of SDFS can get access to a shared folder on the file server only if the administrator allows the user to handle files in the folder. Copy protection functions of SDFS includes disabling of the copy to local disk function and printing (or allowing printing with a watermark), screen capture prevention, disabling network transfer via email and messenger programs, and disabling copy to CD and USB flash drives. If an administrator allows a certain user to copy a file stored on the file server, a copy of the copied file can be securely backed up onto the file server to use for auditing purposes using the backup file function of the SDFS.

The file log records usage, date, time, file server, and the users that accessed the files, for easy file management by administrators. SDFS gathers only useful file logs relating to the users’ actions by eliminating logs that do not relate to the user. For example, the file log does not record temporary files that are created when an application program reads a file, therefore administrators can audit and track the route of leakage quickly and efficiently.

“Many organizations are storing their important and confidential files in file servers to share the files with internal and external coworkers. But the level of security for file servers is generally pretty weak. SDFS has strong security functions that is easily installable and can be used with ease. I expect SDFS to become one of the most popular file server security solutions to contribute to secure file sharing and cooperation of TFT teams and SMBs,” says Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

SECUDRIVE USB Copy Protection Server Released

Brainzsquare releases SECUDRIVE Copy Protection Server, a high caliber copy protection solution for digital content and documents that require frequent content and policy updates and monitoring via servers. Administrators can now securely distribute and control content access remotely using online servers.

Brainzsquare announced its release of SECUDRIVE Copy Protection Server (SDCPS), a server-based copy protection solution into the market.

With the growing needs of content publishers and their content, distribution needs to be more efficient and more closely moderated. Existing copy protection, such as CD or DVD copy protection for content can take up to 10 days or more to produce and distribute, and can be quite pricey when adding all the delivery fees, distribution fees, etc., together. SDCPS was developed with the solution to that in mind. The ability to speed up the production and distribution process and the ability to update content, copy protection policies, and validity licenses regularly when distributed to remote locations are a few of the core advantages of SDCPS.

SDCPS caters especially to companies that need moderated copy protection for their evolving digital content and documents when distributing it to others via online. This specialized copy protection solution utilizes advanced features such as copy protection that prevents screen capture and printing without authorization, validity settings, and DRM policy settings with optional password settings. SDCPS allows administrators to update content licenses and security policies for the purpose of monitoring and regulating.

By installing the server component of SDCPS onto the server, the administrator can monitor, update, and control the validity settings of the digital content remotely. Content will still be downloaded and copied onto normal USB drives as with the regular SECUDRIVE Copy Protection. SDCPS creates secure image files by integrating the digital content and the security policy configuration. Once connected to the internet, a virtual drive will appear on the USB drive, allowing the user to view the stored content. Content policies updated on the server will be updated for authorized users on their virtual drive once connected to the internet.

“SECUDRIVE Copy Protection Server is all of the features of the regular Copy Protection, but now companies who need to monitor and update their content policies online when securely distributing content on USB drives can take advantage of the online license managing program,” said Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.

Brainzsquare offers 30-day trial versions of SDCPS for content publishers to try on their website (www.secudrives.com).
