Security tools for any unauthorized data
transfer through USB flash drive
Its common to copy the files to a USB
flash drive to continue to work from home or any other location.
However there are high chances of employees misusing these
drives to copy files other than the work related data for
some personal benefit.
Lexar media (www.lexar.com ) and DeviceLock Inc have jointly
address this issue by producing encrypted USB flash drives
with security software to safeguard the data saved in flash
The devicelock software allows only authorized drives to successfully
connect to computers and also only to the specified users.
No other generic USB drive can be connected. This centrally
managed software platform integrates Microsoft Active Directory
Group, enabling the security folks to track, log, and control
every flash drive user.
Devicelock also block spy-ware such as key loggers and other
malicious software (malware) from accessing the flash drives.
