Choosing Protection Strategy
Give some thought to your copy protection strategy before recording your content to TSFD - TrusCont Secure Flash Drives devices:
- Identify the most valuable files that require protection – in software this may be the main executable file. In e-learning materials, service manuals, etc. this may be documents or flash animations.
- Protect only the valuable files that require protection – Generic files such as 3rd party applications, files without commercial value or files without sensitive content shall be left unprotected. Protecting files (especially content files) without reason just limits their functionality and operating environment for no reason.
- Decide which operations you wish to restrict – a strict security policy provides good protection for your content. However, some publishers choose to enable operations such as printing to allow their customers easier and more convenient use.
- Add password protection to restrict access of the protected content to specific subscribers.
- Set different passwords to different data sets stored on the same TSFD - TrusCont Secure Flash Drives to target different data sets to different subscribers/divisions.
- Set expiration dates if your content is valid to a specific period, or if using outdated content you publish is not desired.
You are now ready to install the TSFD Protection Toolkit and protect your content.
