LG Electronics has launched two USB Flash drives with embedded security tools to protect data on the drive, or on the host PC.
The ‘Vaccine’ USB drive includes pre-installed software which protects against viruses and malware in real-time. It comes in sizes from 512MB to 8GB and automatically monitors incoming traffic. The software can be updated via the internet.
The second new drive features built-in fingerprint recognition to secure access to data on the drive. Up to ten separate fingerprints can be stored, and the drive comes in storage capacities from 512MB to 4GB.
According to LG’s marketing manager, Fiona Landsberg, “LG recognises that at times computers will not be protected as well as they should be which causes unnecessary risk for users. Our latest USB drive has been developed to give people that extra confidence when connected to the Internet”.
