SanDisk Gives MacFanBoy Love With Secure Flash Drive

The Mac users usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to software and hardware support for the Mac OS.  Most products and applications are specifically design for the Windows user, knowing this is the largest install base of computer owners.  However, the tide is shifting.  I’m not sure if the popularity of the iPod and iPhone are the sole reason, or if users are just tired of the buggie OS of Windows but Mac computers are popping up everywhere.  Friends, work, school – well always school – and even my grandparents house.

Today SanDisk is giving the Mac Fan Boy a bit of love.  SanDisk introduces the first secure flash drive which fully supports operation under the Mac OS.  The SanDisk Cruizer Enterprise is a USB stick that may be used on either a PC or Mac and has the full ability for data encryption of the drive.  With a friendly user interface, the owner can unlock files and data on the stick for using and sharing.  Once the drive is locked down or disconnected the encryption is back on.

  • 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

Granted this solution is data encryption not true USB copy protection like in some drives we’ve seen before…but for many users this will be more than enough.

Available 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. Existing Cruzer Enterprise users may download a firmware update at http://www.sandisk-enterprise.com/macupdater.
