Why Secudrive USB Copy Protection?

USB flash drives are popular as content distribution media for high-density multimedia because they have higher capacity and better portability than CDs or DVDs. In addition, while a CD/DVD is a read-only medium, a USB flash drive is a read/write medium. Therefore, a USB flash drive is the best for complex content that needs the “write” feature, an html file that calls multiple files, an interactive lecture content which a user can make notes on, etc.

However, existing USB copy protection solutions use their own exclusive viewer so that they have to convert original files to PDF-type files to distribute the content with copy protection. This protection means all files should be changed into an image file, which cannot keep the original character of the content.

Secudrive USB Copy Protection protects the distributed content from being copied, network transferred, printed, and screen captured while keeping its original file format. Once a USB flash drive is distributed, the content and security policy can be updated remotely. The flash drive can be utilized for confidential content distribution for businesses as well as multimedia content distribution for the public.

Major Features and Benefits

Digital Right Management (DRM) feature

  • Protects files in a USB flash drive from being copied, network transferred, printed, and screen captured. Blocks all types of copy such as clipboard copy, save as, copy and paste, and drag and drop.

Distribution keeping the original file format

  • Distributes original files as copy-protected. Distributes e-book content that uses multiple image files, PDF files, and flash files in combination. Can add memo in an MS Word and a PDF file, take a look at a function in a cell in an MS Excel file, and keep animation effects in an MS PowerPoint file. You can rotate and zoom-in/out on a three-dimensional model using 100% of a CAD program in a drawing file (some are supported in Secudrive USB Copy Protection + only).

Converts ordinary USB flash drives into secure flash drives

  • Converts ordinary flash drives which have serial numbers into copy-protected flash drives with distributed content.

Password protection

  • Sets up a password for the copy-protected flash drive. Entering incorrect passwords consecutively a certain number of times will either lock the USB drive or completely wipe the content.

Usage setup

  • The number of, and available periods for, login can be set.

Remote content update (Secudrive USB Copy Protection + only)

  • After flash drives are distributed, the content and security policy can be updated remotely. When a flash drive is plugged into a computer, the software automatically checks whether there is a new update.

Remote control (Secudrive USB Copy Protection + only)

  • Prohibits a specific user from using a specific flash drive or completely wipes the content of a specific flash drive.

Content loading on a large scale

  • To make it easier to upload content onto hundreds or thousands of flash drives for distribution, it makes it possible simultaneously to copy with multiple computers connected to USB hubs after making a master flash drive with distributed content and security. It supports USB duplicator as well. Content upload service can be provided upon customer request.
