Sandisk USB flash drives built-in security

Sandisk has announced a pair of USB flash drives designed to offer both security and access speed to business users.

Unveiled at the Gartner IT Security Summit in Washington, DC, Cruzer Professional is designed for individuals and small businesses looking to share files, while Cruzer Enterprise includes such features as central management and regulatory compliance, according to company officials.

Both flash drives include password protection and 256-bit AES encryption and don't require software installation on the host computer, connecting instantly to the Windows operating system, officials say. Both products offer read speeds of 24MB per second and write speeds of 20MB per second.

Cruzer Professional lets the owner establish a "secure zone" on the drive, which can be from one percent to 100 percent of the drive's total capacity. The data inside that zone is password-protected, while information stored outside of that area is open to access by any user.

Cruzer Enterprise password-protects the entire drive, and all files stored on it are encrypted, officials say.

Sandisk also announced Cruzer Enterprise Central Management & Control, server software for performing password recovery, remote disabling of lost drives, centralised backup and restore, and tracking and auditing, according to officials.

Both drives work with Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003.

Pricing for Cruzer Professional ranges from US$54.99 for 1GB of storage, $94.99 for 2GB and $144.99 for 4GB. Pricing for Cruzer Enterprise is set at $74.99 for the 1GB drive, $124.99 for the 2GB drive and $184.99 for the 4GB drive.
