Computer Memory Provider Urges Investment in Secure Flash Memory as the ISS Hit by Computer Virus
Data Memory Systems, one of the US’ foremost computer memory suppliers, is encouraging people to examine their flash drives carefully and ensure they are fully protected against malware and viruses, after it emerged that malware had found its way aboard the International Space Station, of all places. Having recently switched from Windows to Linux computers, the ISS found itself infected with a virus which had been carried aboard on a USB storage device by Russian cosmonauts.
Justin Briere, of Data Memory Systems, says, “The recent virus which found its way onto the International Space Station is proof that security needs to be taken more seriously across the globe, especially when it comes to USB flash drives, which can be used to transfer files quickly between devices. Many of our USB drives come with added software which allow for easy management of the data stored on the devices, and also have the function to password protect the files, so that users have optimum control over what files they are transporting at all times.”
The Transcend JetFlash 760 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive is a prime example of a high-end USB drive that can fulfil anything asked of it, whether it is communicating vast reams of data in short spaces of time, or surviving military drop-tests that have proven its durability. Faster than ever, and fully compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, this powerful USB drive comes with a limited lifetime warranty and can carry files of up to 128GB. The exterior has a unique capless design to ensure there are no parts which can be last, and to guarantee the safety of the USB pins, and the entire thing weighs just 12g.
Part of the same series, the JetFlash 700/730 also supports USB 3.0 and is considered to be the perfect entry-level USB 3.0 device; ideal for those quick trips up to the ISS to transfer data and make necessary adjustments, or even for simply storing rich digital content that can be used on a daily basis. The simple Plug-and-Play installation is a feature of all USB devices nowadays, and there is no external power or battery needed to obtain or save files and data. This particular model comes with a LED usage status indicator, so that you will never be caught short by not having enough space on your device to save that latest song or your favourite video clip.
USB devices like this are all highly protected and secure, so to use one to transport everyday files between computers and laptops is a great way to ensure that your files will remain private and will not be exposed to any vicious malware or viruses.
