USB flash drives have evolved greatly over the years, overtaking the humble CD-ROM and floppy disk as a portable storage medium. Many people rely on flash drives to transport data, and this new-found convenience has come at a great cost; security. Chances are that your USB flash drives are not protected against unauthorized users or malware attacks. Super Talent is aiming to rectify this problem among flash drive users and is preparing a solution; its upcoming DataGuardian USB flash drive series. The new series is password-protected via an onboard utility, allowing your data to be accessed by you when you need it. The drive also blocks auto-run malware attacks, which are the number one method of distributing viruses on USB flash drives. Chief Operating Officer of Super Talent, CH Lee went on to say:
"We developed the DataGuardian based on input from our customers. Security is a basic need for portable data storage and so is the ability to use it anywhere. The challenge was to make it simple. The DataGuardian does just that".
The DataGuardian series uses a USB 2.0 interface and will be available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB variants.
