We’ve seen plenty of data encryption solutions for USB, but what about true Digital Rights Management for USB drives and their content? Well, Nexcopy seems to be thinking the same thing. Nexcopy has teamed with TrusCont to offer true DRM to flash drives.
The USB Copy Protection includes the ability to copy protect .exe files and .pdf files. With both formats you can set time limits, password protection, anti-copy and anti-rip protection. In addition, the technology will apply copy and paste restrictions and printing rights to pdf documents. Sounds like real digital rights management to me.
The enhanced USB drive has more in it’s back pocket than just copy protection – which is ground breaking enough – but includes the ability for end-users to configure a USB CD-ROM partition, USB Read Only partition or combination of those plus an Open partition for general read/write use.
For the ultimate in flexibility, the flash drive can be configured again and again with the USB CD-ROM partition or USB Read Only partition so if you’re looking to make your own custom U3 drive, looking to mess around with auto-launch software or need a combination of both for some high end application, this is it.
Nexcopy is offering a TSFD Publisher Kit which is a combination of the USB duplicator plus, TrusCont’s USB copy protection and USB configuration utility along with various bundles of enhanced TSFD USB drives (qty 50, 100, 300, 500+).
I’ve requested a drive to see what this is all about and will report back.
