Harddisk protection: Hardware or software?

Most schools use hardware protection for their hard disk security. Such hardware protects exactly the same way like HDGUARD does. The most significant difference between the two solutions is, that the protection software is not on the hard disk but on the BIOS of the PCI card.

It is often claimed that software is not secure enough. This assertion we absolutely can not understand. In the following we will describe how hardware and software differ respecting the fact that there is no big difference in security . Both solutions protect very reliably.

USB Protection - block USB flash drives

HDGUARD is a hard disk protection software containing USB access blocker. It allows for dynamically control USB access.

The USB blocker part of HDGUARD provides 3 protection modes to cut off abuse of USB ports effectively. Depending on the application area you can decide to use one of the following protective modes:

  • Write protection for USB memory sticks ("flash drives")
  • I/O blocker for USB memory sticks
  • USB Lock Out (completely disable any kind of USB devices).

Keeping Windows and virus scanner up to date

Windows retrieves updates at least once a month. Most virus scanners load their updates daily. In order to keep your HDGUARD protected system on an actual patch level, HDGUARD offers you the ability to set up update periods.


Expiring support for Windows XP SP2

While Microsofts support for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 is expiring we would like to emphasize that HDGUARD only from version is supporting Windows XP SP3 and Vista SP1 and 2.
