Brainzsquare announces the release of SECUDRIVE USB Cloud for Dropbox, a secure data sharing solution that uses AES 256-bit hardware encrypted USBs, set to launch at the RSA Conference 2014 in San Francisco, CA. SECUDRIVE’s newest cloud solutions allows for easy, yet secure data sharing by syncing the secure storage areas of the USB flash drives using Dropbox, one of the largest cloud service providers.

Sunnyvale, CA – February 24, 2014 – Brainzsquare announces the release of their newest cloud security solution, SECUDRIVE USB Cloud for Dropbox, which allows client-side encrypted file sharing by utilizing two or more AES 256-bit hardware encrypted USB flash drives. By using a Dropbox account, the encrypted storage areas of the USB are synced to each other, allowing for collaborative secure file sharing. Its release is set to be at the RSA Conference 2014 in San Francisco, CA with product demonstration available.

Simple, easy to use client-side encryption. Using SECUDRIVE USB Cloud is as almost as easy as using any other flash drive. Since the secure storage areas of the USBs are synced, the user can share files by simply copying a file to the USB. The file will then by encrypted using the USB’s AES 256-bit hardware encryption and synced to the other registered SECUDRIVE USB Cloud flash drives using Dropbox’s cloud storage. Data is encrypted before being stored in Dropbox, meaning that files will be unreadable while stored in the cloud and can only be decrypted on the registered SECUDRIVE USB Cloud flash drives. Also, this product does not require the installation of the Dropbox client to the PC which allows for the USBs to be used on any PC. Basically, it can be considered a cloud to-go.

Two-factor authentication. Access to the cloud is regulated using two-factor authentication. The user can only access the cloud account by using a registered SECUDRIVE USB Cloud device and inputting the correct password. Without the correct SECUDRIVE USB Cloud device, even with access to the Dropbox account, data will be encrypted and unreadable. In contrast, if the user has the correct device but is without the correct password, the USB will destroy itself after 10 consecutive failed password attempts, keeping access to the cloud safe from unauthorized users.

Remote destruction. The administrator is able to destroy the registered SECUDRIVE USB Cloud flash drives in order to protect the cloud from unauthorized access. By destructing the USB, the user will be unable to login using its previous credentials and all stored data on the USB is destroyed the next time the user attempts to login. Remote destruction is perfect for situations where you want to destroy the device of a previously authorized user.

File revision. Due to the collaborative syncing properties of SECUDRIVE USB Cloud for Dropbox, there can be conflicting copies of data or accidentally deleted data. In order to maintain data integrity, SECUDRIVE USB Cloud for Dropbox comes with file revision history for the administrator. Revision history gives the administrator the ability to restore previous versions of files stored in the cloud including previously deleted files.

“Existing solutions do not provide effective methods for cooperative use of cloud services due to the complications of encryption key management and account management. While existing solutions have proven to be quite beneficial for individual use of the cloud, they seem to be lacking in one of the most basic key features of a cloud service: file sharing. SECUDRIVE USB Cloud for Dropbox could possibly be one of the easiest ways to share files securely using a public cloud service.” –Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare
