USB security must be a no-brainer because we all need to protect our vital information and personal data on USB flash drives. This is particularly important as the usage of these small-sized flash drives is getting increased day by day along with the incidences of lost and stolen USB drives that ultimately leads to data loss and privacy breach.
Surely, we all might not carry private and confidential stuff on these portable drives all the time, so we would not have to be anxious about privacy breach and identity theft every time we use them, but there are some confidential data that we would certainly not want to slip into the wrong hands, and for that we simply password protect our USB drives or try the most complicated encryption option. Since the encryption method is very complicated, many users prefer password protecting their USB flash drive.
You must have heard that USB drives have been accused for privacy breach and identity theft just because they are small enough to get stolen and misplaced. Even though, many people are using them to take their data from one PC to another. This has been a positive approach towards USB and other storage devices.
To attain complete USB security in USB drive, you must have a strong password locking protection that is easy to use but impossible to break like that of USB Secure which is very easy to use when it comes to protect your flash drive but its protection is so hard that it cannot be broken.
You can find numbers of USB Security software but the point is that you have to select the BEST among them, and how do you decide which software is the Best? I always recommend not to use any freeware security application as they pose great risk of data loss. This does not mean that you should have to buy a very expensive security software. You should always keep few things in mind when you want to buy any USB security software; e.g. what kind of security you want for your USB drive and how many portable devices you want to protect with it as many of us carry more than one portable devices like flash drive, memory cards and external drive, so it is important to have a security software that supports all type of storage devices.
