SanDisk secures its USB Flash Drives

SanDisk Cruzer Edge USB Flash Drive

SanDisk today announced the encryption and online backup features for all its entire range of USB portfolio. SanDisk SecureAccess™ software protects files against unauthorized access by creating an encrypted, password-protected folder or ‘vault’ on the USB drive.

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.

“With the UAE being a global business hub, it is among the most vulnerable countries in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to malicious attacks , hence data security has become an absolute necessity,” said Tareq Husseini, SanDisk’s Middle East and Africa Sales Director. “The SanDisk USB drives with SecureAccess software offer an easy to use vault protected by AES encryption.”

The SanDisk Ultra USB flash drive features faster transfer speeds of up to 15 megabytes per second (MB/sec)3 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. The SanDisk Cruzer Edge USB flash drive features a compact slider design for easy portability, allowing consumers to carry anywhere their photos, music and videos with them. The drive carries a two year limited warranty5 and is available in 2GB to 16GB capacities.
