How can IT deal with obvious risks of lost USB drives to business data and reputation? One way is the nuclear option of completely forbidding USB drive usage and all of its convenience. But doing so risks limiting user productivity, and in doing so perhaps forcing users into other ways of sharing files in efforts to get their job done (perhaps over personal email, or internet-based free file sharing platforms).
What’s the worst that can happen with a lost USB drive?
A lot actually – check out some of the eye-opening USB stats in our short video!
With several models and capacities to choose from, there’s one solution that’s ideal for your company’s needs, whether you’re looking for mobile data security or have to comply with data-at-rest directives, laws, standards or global regulations such as GDPR. That solution is encrypted USB drives.
In stats, 20% of organisations currently deploy encrypted USBs, but at least 33% have experienced a USB-related threat or breach in the past year.
What are the main benefits of encrypted USB?
- Antivirus protection
- Complex password protection
- Ability to be managed remotely
- Tamper-evident technology
- Wide capacity range
