Updating Content on USB Flash Drives After Distribution
written by Simon
CD/DVD is still one of the most popular mediums for content distribution because it is cheap, convenient to produce and easy to handle and deliver for content producers. In comparison to streaming and download services, a CD/DVD does not require an authentication process through e-mail or an internet connection. This technology makes it so that only people who own the physical CD/DVDS can access their content.
However, if the content on a CD or DVD needs to be regularly (or irregularly) modified, CD/DVD is not a good medium for content distribution because you will have to redistribute a new CD/DVD every time the content is changed. You should prepare new physical CDs/DVDs again, burn new content to them and redeliver them to hundreds or thousands of users. That is time consuming and may cost a lot of money. In addition, if you have to keep integrity of data, you’ll have trouble of ensuring that only the newest content is used by recipients after each redistribution.
A streaming/downloading service is also not a good option if (a) internet connection is not guaranteed among users, (b) the file size is large and/or there is not enough network bandwidth to properly deliver it to users, (c) the content is so sensitive that producers need to mitigate the risk of unauthorized access (d) users may not be familiar enough with the Internet-service environment to use a streaming or downloading service.
In any case, Secudrive USB Copy Protection is an effective alternative.
Secudrive USB Copy Protection makes it possible for media producers to set up a URL for clients to download updated content that was previously distributed on a USB flash drive. If you have to update content after the first distribution Secudrive USB Copy Protection makes it so that you only have to upload the new content to a folder and then register the content folder. Secudrive USB Copy Protection automatically compares the content to the original and creates a kind of encrypted .zip file. After you upload this updated file, it is downloaded and updated automatically when you plug the original USB flash into any PC connected to the Internet. Because only the modified files are updated in this situation, Network traffic is minimized
Furthermore, this system makes it so that specific USB flash drives can be prohibited from using the content, or specific USB flash drives can be completely wiped remotely using the update feature. You can also check whether or not a specific user has updated the content.
The bottom line is that Secudrive USB Copy Protection is a copy-protection solution that distributes content through USB flash drives. It can set password access, block access or wipe all the content on a USB flash drive if an incorrect password is used a certain number of times. You can set an allowable period of time in which users can access the content on the flash drives or specify a maximum number of logins. In addition, it allows you to white-list which applications users can access, and you can prevent printing, screen capture, network transfer or copying of the content on the USB flash drives. All these features make Secudrive USB Copy Protection an ideal solution for those needing to exercise maximum control over distributed content.
