Lexar addresses the new 16GB Secure II Plus JumpDrive to consumers and small business users who want to securely back up, store and share large files and amounts of data. The device provides 16GB of high speed memory and differentiates itself with the built-in capacity meter, along with a security software that encrypts the stored data.
* Built-In Capacity Meter
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 easy-to-read, 10-bar capacity meter 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.
*Advanced Security Features Ensure Data Protection
II Plus comes pre-loaded with a security software that lets
users protect their data quickly and easily. You can easily create multiple password-protected areas using 256-bit AES encryption, then simply drag files into these secure areas for automatic encryption. When you drag the files out again, they are automatically decrypted. JumpDrive Secure II Plus provides an added level of security 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.
*Transforms Into a Personal PC on the Go
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 tool that lets Windows users work securely while on the move, easily backing up and synchronizing their files, including Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express.
