Unlike most USB drives which have optional security measures that are only used at the user?s discretion, the use of the hardened security features on Verbatim's Store ?n? Go Corporate Secure USB Drive is mandatory. Equipped with advanced security features that have been proven in the field with the Store 'n' Go Pro drives, users can transport mission-critical data with confidence because all stored data is encrypted and the hack-resistant password entry system protects their data from unauthorized access, even if the drive is lost or stolen.
To minimize the likelihood of a security breach, the Store 'n' Go Corporate Secure USB drive requires the use of a complex password, which is further protected by a SHA-1 hashing algorithm which ensures that the password in raw form is not stored in the drive?s memory and cannot be "lifted" from the device or the computer's memory. To protect stored data from dictionary or brute force hack attempts, the Store 'n' Go Drive enters lock-down mode and securely erases all data after ten consecutive failed login attempts.
With a maximum write speed of up to 14MB/sec and a maximum Read speed of 23MB/sec, users of these new Store 'n' Go drives won't have long wait times. A 100MB folder can be transferred to a host system in less than 7 seconds.
Verbatim Store 'n' Go Corporate Secure USB drives are also compatible with msystems' mTrust enterprise security software, an option for organizations that wish to centrally manage their Corporate Secure USB drives or control the use of removable storage devices within the corporate network.
Store 'n' Go Corporate Secure USB Drives are available next month through Verbatim distribution partners and online resellers and are compatible with Windows XP, 2000 SP4 and Microsoft Server 2003 operating systems. Street prices are about $79 for a 1GB drive, $129 for a 2GB drive and $269 for the 4GB version. The complete package includes the Store ?n? Go Corporate Secure USB Drive, a breakaway safety lanyard, personal identification labels and a Quick Start Guide.
