Spyrus Intros USB Encryption Drives

Spyrus introduces Hydra PC USB encryption drives with McAfee antivirus technology

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- SPYRUS, Inc. today announced Hydra PC Virus Protected (ViP) USB encryption drives incorporating antivirus protection from McAfee Scan Engine technology. Combining McAfee antivirus scanning with SPYRUS hardware-based file encryption provides a USB drive solution powerful enough to protect host computers, peripheral flash drives and removable memory media from viruses, malware, spyware and adware.

Hydra PC USB encryption drives with McAfee advanced antivirus security provides both on-demand and on-access identification and detection of malware and viruses that are inherent in most computer network environments. Hydra PC encryption drives guard the integrity of the encrypted data and create a secure channel to preclude key-logger and piggyback intercept attacks from “spoofing” the Hydra PC drive.

SPYRUS uniquely employs its licensing attribute certificate patented technology (U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,904,523, 7,356,692; Australia Pat. No. 776027) to enforce specific terms and policies of the McAfee antivirus software user license. The enforcement data, the licensing data and the data limiting the use of the software to the specific set of terms are cryptographically bound to both the scan engine and the Hydra PC USB drive using a licensing attribute certificate and military-grade Suite B encryption.

“We are pleased to work with SPYRUS to help further protect our customers in the federal government and enterprise sectors,” said David Scholtz, senior vice president of Strategic Alliance and OEM Sales at McAfee. “McAfee’s antivirus technology, integrated with SPYRUS file encryption, keeps critical information protected from the most powerful tools employed by hackers.”
