USB Drives From SanDisk Now Feature Encryption and Online Backup

SanDisk : 07 January, 2011  (New Product)
SanDisk is providing additional security for mobile workers to reduce data loss on the move with the introduction of SecureAccess software for encryption and online backup on the companyís range of retail USB drives
SanDisk is offering encryption and online backup features across its entire retail USB portfolio. SanDisk SecureAccess software protects files against unauthorized access by creating an encrypted, password-protected folder or “vault” on the USB drive. The software also includes up to 2 gigabytes (GB) of secure online backup storage offered by Dmailer.

“Business travelers lose more than 12,000 laptops each week in US airports, and more than half of those laptops contain confidential or sensitive information,” said Kent Perry, director, product marketing, SanDisk. “Data security has become an absolute necessity, and SanDisk USB drives with SecureAccess software offer an easy to use vault protected by AES encryption.”

Encryption and online backup features will be shipping on SanDisk’s entire retail USB portfolio later in the first quarter of this year.

* Password-protected “vault” automatically secures files with 128-bit AES encryption, protecting against unauthorized access in case the drive is lost or stolen.

* Secure partition lets consumers determine which files remain private when sharing a USB drive with colleagues or friends.

* Additional protection against computer crashes and data loss is optionally available for users with up to 2GB of secure online backup from Dmailer. Remotely access online data anytime, anywhere, and easily share large files over the cloud.

* Easy to use drag and drop functionality; the vault’s capacity on the USB flash drive adjusts automatically as content is added or removed.

* Currently shipping on select SanDisk USB drives.

SanDisk is also expanding its USB product portfolio with two new drives to meet the needs of a broad set of customers. The SanDisk Ultra USB flash drive features faster transfer rates and the SanDisk Cruzer Edge USB drive offers easy portability.

The SanDisk Ultra USB flash drive features faster transfer speeds of up to 15 megabytes per second (MB/sec) and large storage capacities that help consumers conveniently manage libraries of multimedia content. The drive carries a five year limited warranty4 and comes in 8GB to 32GB capacities carrying suggested retail prices ranging from $44.99 to $109.99.

Featuring a compact slider design for easy portability, the SanDisk Cruzer Edge USB flash drive allows consumers to bring their photos, music and videos with them wherever they go. The drive carries a two year limited warranty5 and is available in 2GB to 16GB capacities carrying suggested retail prices ranging from $12.99 to $79.99.
