SanDisk Cruzers

SanDisk has taken the wraps off two new USB flash drives, the Cruzer Professional and Cruzer Enterprise. Primary features for the new drives include 256-bit, hardware-based AES encryption (optional and modifiable on the Professional, mandatory on the Enterprise) as well as read and write speeds of 24 MB per second and 20 MB per second respectively.

The Cruzer Professional features password-protected 'Privacy Zone' that can makeup any portion of the drive's total capacity. The data inside this zone is encrypted, while data outside the zone can be accessed by any user.

The Cruzer Enterprise enforces mandatory password protection for the entire drive -- a measure aimed at mitigating ability to access data on the drive in the case of loss or theft. There is also the requirement for creation of a strong password during the set-up process. The Cruzer Enterprise can also interact with SanDisk's CMC (Central Management & Control) server software, which offers password recovery and renewal through the network, remote termination of lost drives, central backup and restore, as well as central usage tracking and auditing.

The Cruzer Professional is available in the following size/price configurations: 1 GB for $55, 2GB for $95, and 4GB for $145. Cruzer Enterprise costs slightly more: 1GB for $75, 2GB for $125 and 4GB for $185.
