Orange Cyberdefense launches Mobile Decontamination Terminal for USB Flash Drives

Mini-terminal Malware Cleaner detects "BadUSB" threats that are undetectable with traditional anti-virus software

?

About 70 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.

New mobile terminal 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.

Malware Cleaner simultaneously uses five anti-virus search engines to optimize and combine the extent and performance of detection. These search engines are automatically updated on a daily basis when the terminal is connected to the internet via the network or using 4G. It has an embedded detection engine for BadUSB type attacks that are undetectable by traditional anti-virus software, which can take control of the computer.

Malware Cleaner includes an admin platform to remotely manage the terminals. This allows to check they are running accurately and being updated, to receive usage statistics in real-time, find out the number of infected files and the types of attack detected. All this precious information helps to improve the company's cybersecurity.
