For example, if a company sets policies so that a self-erasing USB memory device is set up with an access period of 24 hours and sensitive company data can only reside on a particular server and the USB memory, the data can be securely carried out of the company, and for example changes to client presentation materials can be made safely even on a customer's PC.
Together with the self-erasing USB memory device, installing the file redirect software on a PC can be used torestrict the copying of data from the USB memory device, forcing it to reside only on the USB memory itself and a specific company server.
Because the data are permanently inscribed, such polymer memory devices would be well-suited for storing archival materials, digital photos, and video.
