The SecureUSB Technology reduces computer data theft, data loss, viruses and spyware by preventing unauthorized USB storage devices (i.e. USB flash drives, hard drives, smart phones, etc.) from accessing, running, and or copying data. The SecureUSB Technology can also be dynamically configured to restrict any type of USB device, i.e. webcams, scanners, microphones, etc. Protection is delivered at the hardware level, thereby providing a robust and reliable solution. Conversely, software solutions do not offer the same level of security, due to the fact that they are vulnerable to hackers and only provide protection within an Operating System.
