Orange Cyberdefense launches new mobile decontamination terminal for USB flash drives
USB flash drives are second most dangerous source of cyber-threats
Mini-terminal Malware Cleaner detects "BadUSB" threats that are undetectable with traditional anti-virus software
Malware Cleaner is available around the world
Seventy percent of employees use USB flash drives from outside the company and connect them to the company network, and 68 percent take no precautions before inserting them into their work computer.
USB flash drives, whether they are new or used, are major sources of infection for company IT systems. They are in widespread use, particularly in certain sectors such as in industry, education and healthcare, both for sharing documents and for updating software.
A new mobile terminal to remind people to decontaminate USB flash drives
Available until now as a fixed 70kg booth or as a software version installed on computers, the Malware Cleaner solution is now available in a “mini-terminal” version. Thanks to this cheaper, mobile version, businesses can facilitate the decontamination of users’ USB flash drives. This portable version can be found at a reception desk, in meeting rooms or even shared between different sites as needed.
Five integrated anti-virus search engines to detect threats
Orange Cyberdefense experts and their “ethical hacking” teams developed Malware Cleaner. Quick and easy to use, all you have to do is insert the USB flash drive to find out if it is has been infected. If it has, the user can choose to delete the file or put it into quarantine. It is also possible to print off a report for a more detailed analysis of the flash drive: infected files details, signature of detected attack, and the name of the anti-virus search engines that detected the infected file.
