Cruzer Enterprise Becomes First Secure Flash Drive on Mac

Posted by at 11:09 am on December 4, 2008

SanDisk today announced that the SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise is the first  secure USB flash drive to fully support Apple Mac OS X computers.

SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise uses a hardware-based USB encryption solution that puts mandatory access control on all files as protection against theft or loss of the drive. By supporting Macintosh and Microsoft Windows environments, IT professionals can more effectively use SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise to protect information on company-issued secure USB flash drives across their organizations.

“SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise is ideal for the millions of business users who use Macs at home or in the office,” said Yariv Fishman, senior manager, product marketing management, enterprise division, SanDisk. “It combines a simple, user-friendly interface with the addition of SanDisk’s tough security and ultra-fast transfer speeds. It’s the first secure USB flash drive that provides full Mac support by allowing initialization of the drive directly on a Mac platform.”

Cruzer Enterprise in Mac OS X and Windows PC environments has the same features and data security -“ even if used in both environments. The device can be initialized from either a Macintosh or Windows computer, where users can:

  • Log in and shut down access to the encrypted storage area
  • Change and manage passwords
  • Change contact information, language and other preferences
  • Launch online support, view current firmware and drive information

Available today in 1-, 2-, 4- and 8-gigabyte (GB) configurations, Cruzer Enterprise supports Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” and Mac OS X 10.5 “Leopard.” Cruzer Enterprise safeguards all files stored on the drive with advanced hardware-based 256-bit AES USB encryption, which combined with advanced password protection makes it extremely difficult for unauthorized users to access data if the drive is lost or stolen.
