Brainzsquare announced the release of SECUDRIVE USB CAD, a specialized, copy-protected, secure USB solution developed especially for compatibility with design and CAD files.
The USB drive provides protection for document files as well as CAD files. The copy protection solution is compatible with numerous CAD and design programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, AutoCAD, OrCAD, and more. By adding specific programs to the USB's copy protection system, important design files cannot be opened by programs other than the ones the user has specified, and cannot be copied, transferred, or saved onto the local PC. This protects the user's copyrights on their designs and prevents unauthorized people from viewing or leaking the data, the company says.
It also features validity settings, auto-lock, password protection, and print controls with watermark printing. Validity settings allow users to set a time period for the USB to be active and also set a limited number of logins. With auto-lock, users can set a specific time a computer can go inactive before the USB automatically logs out of the device. Users will be asked to input a password upon their first login. If the wrong password is entered more than ten consecutive times, the data on the USB will be automatically and irreversibly erased.
Users have a choice of turning off printing completely, or allowing printing with a customizable watermark. Users can also login as read-only mode, which prevents files on the USB from being edited or overwritten. Detailed event logs are also provided with information such as date, time, user name, USB serial number, and action taken.
"Conceptual drawings and designs for new product development warrant a high level of confidentiality within a company," said Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare. "Companies, as well as employees, have worried about loss, theft, or leakage of their designs whenever they are taken out on a portable device to show to cooperative partners outside of company grounds. Designers can now carry their precious design files with them on SECUDRIVE USB CAD and not have to worry about the security risks of losing their flash drive, unauthorized copying, or virus infected files."
