iStorage adds DriveSecurity™ Antivirus Software to their range of PIN authenticated hardware encrypted portable data storage devices, in time for World Back Up Day

iStorage now offers DriveSecurity powered by ESET, Antivirus software to their award-winning range of PIN authenticated hardware encrypted portable data storage devices to protect such devices against viruses and malware.

 (London, March 2017), iStorage Limited, manufacturers of PIN authenticated hardware encrypted portable data storage drives, have added the premium DriveSecurity antivirus software to their range, just in time for World Back Up Day.

DriveSecurity prevents malware from spreading via removable media and is designed to run from your portable drive (e.g. Flash, HDD/SSD, etc.) and does not require an installation on the host computer. It resides on portable drives providing protection on any Windows® or Mac® computers it is connected to and protects users from viruses and other malware that are commonly transmitted by USB drives. Changes to flash drive content are scanned by ESET’s award-winning ESET NOD32® anti-virus engine to detect and eliminate Viruses, Spyware, Trojans, Worms, Rootkits, Adware and other Internet threats before they can be transmitted onto your portable drives.

Having the DriveSecurity software on your portable secure drive by iStorage provides an additional security layer (antivirus and anti-spyware protection) means that any files placed on your flash drive are malware-free and safe to share with others. It’s easy to use and deploy as there is no need to install anything on a host computer. DriveSecurity brings ESET NOD32 ThreatSense® award-winning security technology, usability and portability together, eliminating all security threats from your portable data storage drive.

Users can be safe in the knowledge that their data will be protected on an iStorage PIN authenticated hardware encrypted portable storage drive, meaning that if the drive is lost or stolen, there is no need to worry about their private files being shared with unwanted users. With the benefit of DriveSecurity antivirus and anti-spyware software, users are given even more security protection meaning that their files and now Win and MAC computers are protected from malicious virus threats that may be spread via portable data storage devices.

Says John Michael, CEO, iStorage Limited:

“There is great synergy with our iStorage range of drives and ESET’s DriveSecurity antivirus software. iStorage protects customer data with PIN access and data encryption, whilst when in use, DriveSecurity protects the files even on public and shared Win/Macs and stops viruses from spreading.”
