Portable Storage Not the Biggest Malware Threat After All

The National Portable Storage Association is comparing the threat of portable storage devices with the safety of portable storage containers in corporate and industrial settings.
KANSAS CITY, MO. (May 25, 2010) – McAfee has released its "McAfee Threats Report: First Quarter 2010," which reveals that a portable storage device worms are the most dangerous threat to computers.

According to McAfee, threats on portable storage devices took the lead for most popular malware. AutoRun related infections held the first and third spots due to the widespread adoption of portable storage devices. By contrast, portable storage containers are still among the safest places to store industrial goods.

"It's almost a shame that USB drives have so many names. Some people call them thumb drives. But other people call them portable storage—and these devices tend to carry a security risk for corporations," says John Finnessy, CMP, Executive Director of the NPSA, a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry. "Portable storage as we know it in the portable storage container industry is a means to secure goods rather than a way for malicious hackers to exploit sensitive files."

From retailers to construction companies to transportation interests to medical facilities and more, portable storage containers are serving the storage and temporary office needs of a myriad of industries. Department stores are a prime example. Along with pharmacies, supermarkets, hospitality and food service venues, department stores have discovered that portable storage can offer much-needed extra space, especially in busy seasons.

"There is seemingly no end for the uses of portable storage," says NPSA Operations Manager Joel Rathbone. "We continue to see industries large and small discover new ways to use portable storage containers. They are ideal for manufacturers, contractors, auto dealerships, retail outlets. If it's an industry that needs quick and easy access to storage, these containers are finding a place there."
