Optical media and drives are dead. In the evolutionary realm of data distribution, it is no secret that optical media and drives are slowly becoming obsolete. Hastening the downfall is a host of factors. User preferences are shifting toward mobile products, and computer manufacturers are increasing the battery life of a laptop by removing the optical drive and creating thinner and lighter computers. Given this trend, the quest is for a data distribution solution on USB rather than optical CD or DVD.
However, unlike optical CD and DVD, USB is not a read-only solution and with data being unprotected, it leaves the door ajar for hackers to easily gain access to vital data. “With our USB read-only solutions, clients have the ability to share and protect data at the same time,” states Greg Morris, founder and president of Nexcopy. Nexcopy is here to help with flash memory duplicators and in-house USB device printing solutions.
The company’s flash memory duplicators provide many valuable features outside the standard binary copy modes of other systems. Nexcopy offers unique data streaming to each memory socket and provides data extraction from each memory device. Nexcopy’s USB solutions have very distinctive features that allow clients to set write protection at the controller level, set serial strings in read-only memory on the device, and grant descriptor field edits for those same devices.

Collectively, the clients get total control over the USB product and its characteristics during the production cycle.
The value proposition is exemplified in a scenario where a manufacturer has to update field requirement firmware without the risk of exposing that system control device. With a write protected USB—Nexcopy’s Lock License product—the manufacturer is able to download data, load the drive with their new firmware, and set the write protection. When the USB gets into the field technician’s possession, the content cannot jump onto the drive and harm the host device. “The Lock License technology is an ideal solution for systems control organizations,” states Morris.
Nexcopy’s copy protection technology proves its mettle in the intellectual property space as well. With Nexcopy, organizations no longer need to fret about protecting their assets; as it provides copy protection for both USB and Apple devices. Copy secure USB drives copy protection to PDF, MP4, MP3, HTML, XML, and other file types. “With our copy protection, the user can view the file but cannot print, save, share, screen capture, or rip the content off the drive and what is more, it requires no internet connection and works both in Mac and PC,” explains Morris.
The copy protection is also available in Nexcopy’s secure digital (SD) solutions, enabling users to read and extract the Chip ID (CID) numbers from the device and use it for custom applications. Most users will extract CID numbers through this method and use that information as key codes for the data put back onto the SD cards, which is a more robust way of securing intellectual property.
At its core, the Nexcopy team abides by the philosophy, ‘solve the client’s problems and everything else will follow’ and constantly seeks out solutions that resolve the existing challenges of their customers. Being in the industry for years, Morris draws attention to numerous instances where customers compromise on performance and reliability for the price and face problems with their consumable items. “Although USB drives and SD cards are ubiquitous in shape, there are many elements that contribute to overall quality and performance of these devices. I can say with absolute certainty that when it comes to Nexcopy’s solutions you get what you pay for,” ends Morris.
Nexcopy Releases a More Extensive, 40 Target USB-C Duplicator
