EkZee is a pocket-sized and standalone electronic device that detects and deletes all the executable files that can contain malicious software from the USBs. With a single press of a button, EkZee detects and preemptively deletes all infected and benign executable files that can contain malware. This is a simple, cheap but powerful way of preventing malware infections. EkZee is a patent pending technology.
In order to mass produce EkZee, we need some help. We have launched a campaign for EkZee on Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1675461711/ekzee-a-portable-gadget-to-remove-viruses-from-usb
How can you help?
(1) Raise awareness: Spread the word about EkZee amongst your contacts and friends.
(2) Pledge: Become a funder for this project. The minimum pledge is £1.
Please note that these pledges will only issue if the project achieves full funding. In any case, we value any feedback regarding improving this project.
Why can't a conventional PC based anti-virus software be used to clean USBs?
Often it is too late to use conventional anti-virus software to disinfect infected USB flash drives. Because many viruses easily infect pre-installed anti-virus software in PCs, those anti-virus systems are ultimately rendered ineffective.
Information Week reported, “In the past two years, 70% of businesses have traced the loss of sensitive or confidential information to USB flash memory sticks. While such losses can occur when the devices get lost or stolen, 55% of those incidents are likely related to infected devices that introduced malicious code onto corporate networks.”
