SECUDRIVE USB Basic Released

Brainzsquare announced the release of SECUDRIVE USB Basic, a new secure USB solution with hardware encryption which is strengthened by embedded functions such as password protection, self-destruction, auto-locking, login as read-only mode and anti-virus vaccine, designed to protect data in vulnerable situations.

San Jose, CA – August 27th, 2013 – Brainzsquare announced the release of SECUDRIVE USB Basic, a secure USB solution with hardware encryption, strengthened by embedded functions designed to keep important data secure in vulnerable situations.

With SECUDRIVE USB Basic, users can safely carry their important data without having to worry about the consequences of losing it because it provides security features designed to protect your data in everyday vulnerable situations. The flash drive comes with AES-256 bit hardware encryption which automatically encrypts all stored files in a secure zone of the drive. Users are asked to set up password protection upon their first login. If the wrong password is entered in excess of ten times, the contents of the USB drive will be permanently erased by its self-destruction function, keeping the data stored inside from being seen by prying eyes even if the flash drive is lost or stolen.

Auto-lock is also a feature of SECUDRIVE USB Basic which automatically closes all files currently open on the computer and logs you out of the USB drive secure zone if the user has been inactive for a specific amount of time. So whether you’re at your computer or away from the keyboard, you can relax, knowing your flash drive automatically logs you out after a certain amount of time. Users can also login as “read-only,” which allows users to only be able to access the data stored on the USB in a Read-Only format. This helps users avoid certain malware.

SECUDRIVE USB Basic comes with an embedded Trend Micro™ Antivirus program to prevent files stored on your flash drive from being compromised by virus infections. All files stored onto the flash drive will automatically be scanned and protected from viruses by Trend Micro’s program. Pattern analysis and engine updates are provided for one year from the date of purchase. Users can renew their subscription license annually through the SECUDRIVE website.

“If you don’t want anyone to access your files on your USB flash drive, you should use a hardware encrypted, secure USB. This has become essential over the last few years. SECUDRIVE USB Basic is one of the most effective hardware encrypted USB flash drives designed to keep valuable and confidential information secure in vulnerable situations. It’s simple but very effective in securing data for everyone,” 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 USB Office Released

Brainzsquare releases SECUDRIVE USB Office, a new, copy-protected USB solution with hardware encryption and password protection which secures confidential documents. This secure USB solution comes with validity settings, security policies, and detailed event logs to prevent confidential documents from being leaked whether by accident or with malicious intent.

San Jose, CA-July 9th, 2013-Brainzsquare releases a new, copy-protected USB solution for confidential and private document files, into the market.

Many corporate businesses allow employees to carry confidential documents with them on their USB storage drives. But what can businesses do as an administrator if the employee’s flash drive is lost or stolen? What if there is a malicious intent on copying the confidential documents without an authorization? Brainzsquare has developed a USB solution to solve all these security issues.

With SECUDRIVE USB Office, employees that handle sensitive document files can feel safe carrying them on these specialized flash drives. A unique feature of this USB drive is the copy protection feature which prevents document files from being copied without authorization. The copy protection security feature is compatible and supports the Microsoft Office programs and others. By specifying which application is allowed or disallowed for copying, SECUDRIVE USB Office can prevent document files from being accessed and copied by other programs.

It also comes with hardware encryption and antivirus vaccination software to prevent document files from being leaked or affected by viruses. With several other security features such as validity settings, password protection, auto- lock, and detailed event logs, users can keep track of their documents and prevent data from being leaked if the flash drive is ever lost or stolen.

“SECUDRIVE USB Office is a top-notch USB security solution for business and corporate users due to the nature of the copy protection feature and other security policies. It can be a safe way to carry corporate confidential documents out of the office especially if the company utilizes a virtual desktop infrastructure. By using SECUDRIVE USB Office, users can prevent confidential documents from being leaked even if the USB drive is lost or stolen. It can also prevent private documents from accidental or malicious data leakage,” said 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).

SECUDRIVE Sanitizer Portable Released

A new hard disk wipe solution now available from Brainzsquare, SECUDRIVE Sanitizer Portable allows users to easily delete data on hard drives completely, including the OS, without the need to enter BIOS setup or use additional booting devices.

Brainzsquare announced its release of SECUDRIVE Sanitizer Portable(SDSP), a simple hard drive erasure solution that doesn’t require additional booting devices or the BIOS setup.

The only requirements of running SDSP are connecting the USB flash drive, choosing an erase algorithm, and selecting the disk to be wiped within the same PC environment. SDSP erases various kinds of disk drives such as ATA/IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB, and FireWire. SDSP utilizes world-known to erase algorithms such as the Gutmann algorithm (35 times overwrite), the DoD5220.22-M algorithm (3 and 7 times overwrite), etc. to wipe the PC including the OS.

In addition, the details of the erase procedure (disk info, erase algorithm, etc.) are recorded on the report log which is embedded into the hardware. SDSP’s software also allows the user to erase multiple computers and disk drives simultaneously and can be used as many times as needed within a single location.

“Due to the difficulty and complicated nature of having to set up BIOS and having to use additional booting devices such as CD or USB flash drive when wiping the disk, IT specialists were often necessary. SDSP was developed with a solution in mind. The goal of SDSP is to allow even the casual users to be able to completely wipe their computer with extreme ease,” said Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.
