You can finally share your flash disk without having the virus paranoia. ESET, a global leader in security software for over 25 years, is set to develop a new range of secure USB flash drives with in-built antivirus. That is the best news we have heard all year. It gets better; you do not have to install any software onto your host computer. This comes as a relief for many who are not as tech savvy.

ESET has partnered with Swedish tech firm CTWO Products AB to come up with the ClevX Drive Security USBs that will now have the ability to detect and eliminate viruses, spyware, trojans, worms, rootkits, adware and other Internet threats before they can be transmitted onto portable drives. ESET East African Area Manager, Bruce Donovan says that data protection is essential to better protect our devices from viruses and malware which can be transmitted by USB drives both at home and in offices.

CTWO Products AB vice president of sales and marketing Mr. James Baker, says that today’s workers move from home to office and computer to computer frequently, and USB flash drives are a common means to transfer data between machines, which can lead to the rapid spreading of malware, unless they are protected.

ESET’s products rank among the world’s most advanced security solutions and have been distributed in the Kenyan market for more than 10 years. It recently opened shop in Westlands, Nairobi and can be contacted at or here.
