PC Guardian's USB Port Security System reduces the risk of data leakage, data theft, computer viruses, and malware by physically locking and blocking USB ports from unauthorized access.

San Rafael, CA -- February 9, 2007 -- PC Guardian, a premier manufacturer of computer and data security products, announced today the launch of its new USB Port Security System. The USB Port Security System reduces the risk of data leakage, data theft, computer viruses, and malware by physically locking and blocking the USB ports of a computer.
Capable of protecting single or multiple USB ports in various configurations, the USB Port Security System offers effective, instant, maintenance-free data protection and eliminates the burden of software installation and compatibility. In addition, it provides continued, secure access for authorized USB devices by capturing the device's cable and locking it into the USB port.
The USB Port Security System was developed in response to the ever increasing threat of unauthorized data transfer through USB ports to flash drives, memory sticks, MP3 players, and other mobile storage devices. "With the proliferation of inexpensive mobile drives and storage devices on the market today, data theft and data leakage is a top concern of our customers" said Ann Laurenson, President and CEO of PC Guardian. Continued Laurenson, "Our new USB Port Security System provides a simple and effective alternative to expensive software installations. It effectively blocks USB port access, yet does not impede productivity by allowing secure, continued access of authorized devices such as a keyboard and mouse.It's the perfect baseline security solution for administrators looking to secure vulnerable workstations from internal or external threats."
The USB Port Security System is compatible with most USB ports on the market today. The push-button lock installs in seconds and is available in different keying options to meet corporate and individual needs. Multiple configurations are available to secure from one to seven USB ports. PC Guardian's USB Port Security System ships starting February 20th.
