New Lexar JumpDrives

The JumpDrive series of USB flash drives has been upgraded and expanded, says Lexar. New to the lineup is the JumpDrive 360, which the company describes as being "capless" -- that is, it uses a rotating metal jacket to eliminate the need for a cap on the USB port. The drive will come with Lexar's PowerToGo program for secure mobile computing, and the Secure II software, which now enables quick, 256-bit AES encryption (and decryption) using a drag-and-drop folder system. A "File Shredder" function wipes traces normally left behind when deleting files. Lexar has also upgraded its JumpDrive Firefly, doubling capacity from 4GB (pictured) to 8GB, and will be doing the same for the Secure II drive, not to be confused with its namesake application. The new Firefly and Secure II products should be ready in March; no date has been set for the 360.
