Lexar Media introduced its massive 16GB-capacity JumpDrive Secure II Plus USB flash drive. The 16GB Secure II Plus JumpDrive is intended for consumers and small business users who want to securely back up, store and share large files and amounts of data.
In addition to providing users with 16GB of high speed memory, the JumpDrive Secure II Plus featuresÃ‚Â the innovative and award-winning built-in capacity meter, along withÃ‚Â advanced security software that ensures usersÃ‚Â theyÃ‚Â can protect their important documents knowing that their informationÃ‚Â is encrypted — even if the device is lost or stolen.
JumpDrive Secure II Plus comes pre-loaded with advanced security software that lets users protect their data quickly and easily. Users can easily create multiple password-protected areas using 256-bit AES encryption, then simply drag files into these secure areas for automatic encryption. When users drag the files out again, they are automatically decrypted.
JumpDrive Secure II Plus provides an added level of security and peace of mind with its special File Shredder feature, which allows users to securely discard files, including the hidden “digital trail” normally left behind when files are deleted. Files that have been deleted using the File Shredder feature are securely deleted and cannot be recovered by file recovery tools.
The 16GB Lexar JumpDrive Secure II Plus will be available beginning in September 2008 for a suggested retail price of US$99. Additionally, the Lexar JumpDrive Secure II Plus USB flash drive is available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities.
