  • 06 November, 2008 11:51

<p><i> New portable drive doubles memory capacity of existing Secure II Plus, with the same advanced security, performance and convenience features</i></p>
<p>Lexar Media, a leading global provider of flash memory products, today announced the introduction of 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.</p>
<p>In addition to providing users with 16GB of high speed memory, the JumpDrive Secure II Plus features the innovative and award-winning built-in capacity meter, along with advanced security software that ensures users they can protect their important documents, songs, photos and other files securely, knowing that their information is encrypted - even if the device is lost or stolen. These features have made the JumpDrive Secure II Plus desirable for on-the-go consumers, small business owners, travelling professionals and anyone who wants reliable, safe and convenient file storage and transfer capabilities.</p>
<p>The large storage capacity afforded by the 16GB JumpDrive Secure II Plus gives users the ability to store and transfer large libraries of photos, music files, video footage and more. The new 16GB JumpDrive Secure II Plus is both PC- and Mac-compatible and offers premium features and performance at an affordable price.</p>
<p>Darrell Hill, senior product marketing manager at Lexar Media, noted: "Today's consumers are looking for maximum storage capacity and advanced security protection in their USB storage devices. Our new 16GB-capacity JumpDrive Secure II Plus offers the proven data protection and reliability that people have come to expect from Lexar and our Secure II products, with dramatically expanded storage capabilities."</p>
<p><b>Convenient built-in capacity meter</b></p>
<p>The onboard capacity meter feature on the JumpDrive Secure II Plus solves a common problem faced by many USB flash drive users, namely how to gauge the available storage space on their drive. The innovative, easy-to-read, 10-bar capacity meter accurately shows available storage space at a glance, without even plugging it into a computer. What makes this solution unique is that it requires no software drivers, no administrative privileges and it works across platforms and functions independently of the operating system-giving users great flexibility and ease of use.</p>
<p><b>Advanced security features ensure data protection</b></p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p><b>Transforms into a personal PC on the go</b></p>
<p>As a special bonus for Windows®-based road warriors, JumpDrive Secure II Plus comes pre-loaded with a free 30-day trial of Dmailer V7 software, a powerful and easy-to-use tool that lets Windows users work securely while on the move, easily backing up and synchronising their files, including Microsoft Outlook® and Outlook Express®. When combined with the advanced encryption features of the JumpDrive Secure II Plus, users can work with files and surf the web securely, confident that no trace of their session will be left behind.</p>
<p><b>Availability and pricing</b></p>
<p>The 16GB Lexar JumpDrive Secure II Plus will be available in November 2008 for a suggested retail price of NZ$124.75 / AU$111.30. Additionally, the Lexar JumpDrive Secure II Plus USB flash drive is available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities.</p>
