SanDisk Cruzer Ent for Mac

SanDisk today reached out to the smaller but growing base of Macs in business with an updated version of the Cruzer Enterprise. The USB drive's 256-bit AES encryption now works with Mac OS X Tiger or Leopard and lets these Mac owners access the locked-down portion of the storage and manage passwords without using a Windows PC. Adding support now lets Mac users bring their drives to Windows PCs, or vice versa, without having to either disable security or use insecure drives, SanDisk claims.

The drives continue to share the same 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities as before and should be available today at prices that aren't publicly listed by the company. All existing Cruzer Enterprise drives can also be upgraded to the new cross-platform firmware through a Mac updater.

    to encrypt it, no special utility needed, just create a sparse disk image.
