Overview

Kakasoft USB Security is a USB protection software package that intends to protect users who plug in a USB drive and then wish to ensure their data will be kept safe even in an internet cafe computer.

The software encrypts the files stored on the USB flash drive (or memory card) using 256bit AES encryption. This means that files can only be unlocked when the correct password is entered. When the USB drive (or memory card) is removed, the open files immediately locked down to prevent access by other people who may use the same computer afterward.

The remainder of the files remain encrypted on the storage medium because only the file accessed has been decrypted when the correct password is entered. As a result of this, the remaining files stay encrypted while the media is inserted into the PC which provides added security for the user.

Only three simple steps are needed to begin protecting files that are stored on either a USB flash drive or memory card. This makes this far less daunting for users who have no experience of using USB security applications or encryption technology and could be a bit nervous about the safety of their data when using such software.

Installation

The installation is a little unusual in the fact that the software refuses to install until a USB drive or memory card is detected (the software installs directly to the storage medium). Once this hurdle is overcome, the software installation proceeds normally. No extra software was installed during the setup process.

Interface

The interface has been kept simple. There is a lot of green in the interface which can be a bit glaring, so not a good app to use first thing in the morning when your eyes are still trying to wake up!

Other than that, a clean interface which is easy to use and understand how the different features can be used.

Pros

  • Modern USB protection software
  • 256-bit AES encryption for files stored on either USB flash drives or memory cards
  • Password hint included to remind the user if they forget their password

Alternatives

The Kakasoft USB Copy Protection is an alternative that includes copy protection and printing protection for files storage on a range of media.

Conclusion

Kakasoft USB Security is an effective security package that can lock files accessed on a USB flash drive or memory card. It provides 256-bit encryption and peace of mind when using foreign computers.
