CTWO Products AB Announces Collaboration with ClevX and ESET on New Secure USB Range


CTWO_products_AB_logoCTWO Products AB has announces collaboration with ClevX and ESET on their new secure USB drives Safexs Protector 3.0 & Safexs Protector XT.

Safexs Protector 3.0 & Safexs Protector XT are the latest range of secure USB drives by CTWO Products that come with built-in ClevX DriveSecurity powered by award winning NOD32 ESET Antivirus engine. ClevX DriveSecurity is a powerful USB antivirus, a portable (no host installation required) utility that prevents malware such as viruses, spyware, Trojans, worms, rootkits, adware and other Internet-borne threats from spreading via portable drives.

“Today’s workers move from home to office and computer to computer frequently, and USB flash drives are a common means to transfer data between machines, which can lead to the quick spreading of malware, unless they are protected. Our combined secure drive solution with ClevX and ESET provides a multitude of layers to protect users’ data and computer from potential data loss and infection”. said James Baker, VP of Sales & Marketing, CTWO Products AB.

Device users are protected once drive authentication has occurred and a strong password has been created, then DriveSecurity (USB antivirus) application is automatically launched and the ESET Antivirus engine then scans for spyware, trojans, worms, rootkits and viruses, then deletes infected files and notifies the user of the infected/deleted files. The technology is built-in to all Safexs Protector 3.0 & Safexs Protector XT drives with no need for a costly management solution to be installed, configured or maintained.

“Portable media is a common source of malware infection,” said Lev Bolotin, CEO, ClevX, LLC. “People carry sensitive personal files on their USB drives and they often don’t realize that their drive can be infected when plugged into a computer and then that infection can be transferred to other machines. Together with CTWO and ESET, we can offer a solution which keeps the contents of USB Flash drives safe and malware-free, and prevents malware from spreading via removable media.”

Safexs Protector 3.0 & Safexs Protector XT drives come with a whole raft of security features built to protect the users data and the computer that they are working on.

Key Security Features:

  • AES256-bit Encryption in XTS Mode.
  • Logout, Lock or Shutdown the computer if the device is left in the machine unattended for a configurable period of time.
  • Configure the device to wipe in case of loss or theft.
  • Password Rescue enabled, giving users the ability to securely unlock the device in case of a password being lost and without the need to install a costly management solution.
  • Virus & Malware protection.

“Data protection is becoming essential for businesses to keep their data safe due to increasing regulatory pressure as well as needs to safeguard their customers‘ information in the highest possible way. Adding ClevX DriveSecurity powered by ESET’s award winning NOD32 engine to CTWO’s encrypted USB drives allows customers to keep the contents of USB Flash drives safe and malware-free, and prevents malware from spreading via removable media” said Ignacio Sbampato, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at ESET.

“CTWO‘s mission is to create easy to use products that are secure, meet industry regulations are feature rich and affordable. Our new range meets all these criteria”. Said Baker.
