A hardware-encrypted, secure flash drive is generally recognized as a security solution only for ‘honest’ users. A data breach cannot be prevented if a user with malicious intent hands it over, with the password, to an unauthorized person; however, the data on it can be protected if it is lost or stolen. Many significant data-breach accidents are perpetrated by dishonest people.
Secudrive USB Office/CAD is the most secure USB drive solution, in which both a hardware encryption chip and DRM software are embedded to protect confidential files from being breached by malicious insiders or accidentally lost. With Secudrive USB Office/CAD, a user can freely edit files on the flash drive, but they cannot copy, network transfer, print, or screen capture those files without approval. It also generates complete user and file activity logs for post auditing.
Major Features and Benefits
An AES-256 hardware cryptochip is installed in the flash drive, and so the encryption key is stored in the chip itself. Administrator rights for the installation of additional encryption or other software are not required. Encrypted data cannot be read, even if the memory chip is disassembled and transplanted into a different flash drive.
Trend Micro USB SecurityTM 2.1 is automatically activated when the flash drive is accessed, and a real-time virus scanner runs whenever the stored files are read or written onto the flash drive. Once it detects infected files, it quarantines them and subsequently alerts the user with a pop-up message. The latest virus pattern files are downloaded through the Internet, keeping the security standards continually updated.
USB 3.0 supported
Secudrive USB Office/CAD supports USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
A user must enter the correct password to access Secudrive USB Office/CAD. Entering incorrect passwords consecutively a certain number of times will either lock the USB drive or completely wipe the data to prevent data loss, according to the security policy.
Flash drive auto lock
After a specified idle time on the PC, when the flash drive is plugged in, the flash drive will be automatically locked.
Digital Rights Management
DRM(Digital Rights Management) controls the user’s right to copy, network transfer, print, or screen capture files stored on the flash drive.
Editable, but leakage prevented
The user’s rights can be controlled while the user can freely edit files on the flash drive. This interface transparency helps to support productivity.
Whitelisting applications can be run on the flash drive. This prohibits unknown applications from being accessed via the flash drive, thus protecting the flash drive from infection with malware such as ransomware.
All user and file activity logs are gathered on the flash drive, and are checked when a user returns. These include user access, file activity, such as create, modify, delete, copy, network transfer, print, and screen capture, and more. Secudrive USB Management Server can monitor the logs in real time through the network (Secudrive USB Office+/CAD+ only).
Control of various types of copy attempts
Various kinds of copy attempts are controlled, including copy/paste, save-as to local PC, save to web, and clipboard copy.
Print control options
Printing can be prohibited or allowed. Watermarks can be added when allowing printing. The spooled file is encrypted while it is being sent to the printer.
Integration with Secudrive File Server
If Secudrive File Server is established alongside Secudrive USB Office/CAD in an organization, encrypted and copy-protected files can be securely transferred between the two. This is the most secure way to share files with business partners outside the office.
