USB Copy Protection by Nexcopy

USB Copy Protection is a solution for anyone to see a file, yet the file cannot be printed, shared, copied, streamed or screen captured.

Using Nexcopy’s hardware based USB write protection along with our exclusive copy protection technology, your files are safe – yet accessible – for both Windows and Mac computer users.

Copy protect PDF files, MP4 video files, MP3 audio files and more. Nexcopy is the only multi-platform hardware and software copy protection solution available for in-house, quick-turn and with total control to protect files which are important to you. This is more than encryption, which is an important distinction to understand.

It is not required for any software to be installed in order for the end-user to view the files.

The Copy Secure flash drive is Nexcopy’s product which provides USB copy protection for MP4 video, MP3 audio, PDF files, text files and HTML pages.

This copy protection solution is both a hardware and software solution which encrypts and copy protects your valuable files and write protects the device so the files cannot be deleted, manipulated or formatted off the drive. Copy Secure drives are high-performance devices which offer the best read/write speeds to maximize functionality.

The Digital Rights Management (DRM) software used to data load the Copy Secure drives come with optional file settings to maximize protection. The copy protection license is tied to the flash drive. As long as you physically have the drive, you will have the copy protection features – there is no annual license requirement.
