U3 Protection / Password Protection

Hi,

Does anyone know of a way to protect a USB key really simply and without installing any programs on our PC's.

I like the U3 software but I don't want to allow our users to install things and then run them on our computers from thier flash drives.

Is there a way of preventing our users from installing U3 applications but still allowing them to use the password feature.

Alternativley, is there a way of protecting USB keys that's simple to use and doesn't require installing anything on the PC?



Thanks in advance,

Andrew

If the users are local admins then you can use truecrypt in portable mode. That's the only one I know of. Because of its nature, all encryption software either needs to be run as admin (which for other reasons is not a good idea) or be preinstalled.
The other solutions is using USB key which have encryption built in and don't require software installation. E.g. IronKey.

I think the long and short of this is that the answer is no!

I'm finding very quickly that what I want to do needs to be sorted with hardware rather than software.

As you're the only person who replied - and what you have put was true I will let you have the points.

Thanks
