ESET Joins Forces with Leading Tech Firm to Power New Secure USB Drives

Next story
ESET®, a global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, today announces that CTWO Products AB has joined its collaboration with ClevX DriveSecurityTM  powered by ESET, resulting in a new range of secure USB drives. The two new drives made by CTWO Products – Safexs Protector 3.0 & Safexs Protector XT – feature antivirus protection with built-in ClevX DriveSecurityTM powered by ESET

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


This powerful USB antivirus utility, powered by ESET, prevents malware from spreading via portable drives. Designed to run without installation on a host computer, ClevX DriveSecurityTM operates from the portable drive itself, eliminating malware found in the drive's files.

“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 rapid spreading of malware, unless they are protected,” said James Baker, VP of Sales & Marketing, CTWO Products AB. “Our combined secure drive solution with ClevX and ESET provides a multitude of layers to protect users’ data and computers from potential data loss and infection.”  


Key Security Features include:
  • AES256-bit Encryption in XTS Mode
  • Logout, Lock or Shutdown of 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, if enabled, gives users the ability to securely unlock the device in case of loss of password
  • Virus & Malware protection

“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." 



“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.
