USB Disk Security Editor’s Review
Keep your computer safe from malware lurking on your thumb drive with this must have Windows utility.
It’s sad, really.
Malware is perhaps the most active kind of software available on the internet today. Its prolific, its profitable, its innovative; and its everywhere. Interesting thing is, that the internet isn’t the only place that you can catch a bug from. As popular as they are, thumb drives are perhaps one of the biggest offenders after your Ethernet port and Wi-Fi connection. This is why I like applications likes USB Disk Security. Its security software for Windows.
USB Disk Security provides you with protection against any malicious programs trying to attack your computer via a USB thumb drive. It delivers a high level of protection against theft and accidental disclosure of confidential data. It prevents unauthorized persons from stealing your data. The best thing about it is that its compatible with other antivirus software and doesn’t slow down your computer.
USB Disk Security uses innovative technology to block known and unknown threats via USB drive. It supports USB drive, flash disk, secure digital card, thumb drive, pen drive, removable storage, iOS devices, and many more. If it connects to your computer via a USB cable, USB Disk Security can likely keep any malware on it, off your PC. Just install it and forget it. It’s just that easy.
One of the best things about USB Disk security is that it doesn’t require AV signature updates. Other antivirus software can’t do this. When new viruses, worms and other malicious attacks strike your computer, traditional AV signatures are insufficient. Every minute you have to wait for a virus signature update creates a window of vulnerability that could be devastating to you and your data. USB Disk Security uses advanced proactive detection techniques, and closes the window of vulnerability left open by other reactive, signature-based responses.
Pro’s: Install and forget it, doesn’t rely on AV signatures to work, Free updates
Con’s: TSR styled runtime stays active as long as the computer is on, may interfere with other USB apps and communications
Conclusion: USB Disk Security is a GREAT tool to have for your Window based PC. I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t use thumb or some other USB based solid state drive. They are the floppy disks of the decade. Because they are so prolific, and can go just about anywhere, it’s easy, and very likely for them to get infected with something.
Assuming that they are carrying some kind of malware before you even put them in your USB port is smart. However, without the right tool to protect your system and home network, you could wind up with a huge problem. While this app does use TSR-styled technology, it shouldn’t cause any kind of performance based hit, though its monitoring of USB based traffic and disk activity may at some point interfere with USB communications. Regardless, this is a must have app.
USB Disk Security provides total protection against any malicious programs trying to attack via USB drive. It is the best solution to protect offline computer.
