LexarLexar Media develop secure USB storage : Lexar Media, Inc., a world leader in advanced digital media technologies, announced the development of advanced, Lexar secure USB storage-based technologies. Lexar plans to work together with Phoenix Technologies, Ltd. to develop support for locking USB personal storage devices (PSDs) that can be used with the Microsoft BitLocker Drive Encryption feature to be included in the upcoming release of Microsoft's upcoming Windows Vista. The technology developed by Lexar for BitLocker, will coordinate the PSD-Lock technology protection of Lexar's new enterprise-class SAFE PSD products with the pre-boot authentication capability of Phoenix Technologies' TrustedCore.

This technology will provide protection against unauthorized use of the USB Flash Drive (UFD) that enables the boot of a BitLocker-protected computer and also protect the BitLocker Drive Encryption keys held in the UFD when the UFD is not connected to the protected computer. Additionally, it will increase the functionality and value of products featuring Lexar's PSD-Lock technology, an embedded device access control that enables USB device locking.

Farshid Tabrizi about BitLocker encryption keys
Noted Farshid Tabrizi, Lexar General Manager, Enterprise and OEM Products: "At Lexar we're excited that Microsoft's BitLocker feature enables the optional use of a UFD to store the BitLocker encryption keys. Enterprise customers will benefit from the embedded device access control technologies in our secure enterprise class USB personal storage devices and secure pre-boot authentication functionality that allows an authentication process to be completed before the stored BitLocker Drive Encryption keys can be accessed from the UFD to boot Vista."

Lexar - First class USB personal storage device
"We are pleased to be working with Lexar in the development of enhanced security for USB devices," said Robert Wise, vice president, product marketing. "The combination of Lexar's unique USB storage capabilities with Phoenix competencies in endpoint security and pre-boot authentication will bring best-of-breed solutions to our mutual enterprise customers." Lexar's First Enterprise-Class USB Personal Storage Device Shown At WinHEC 2006 Also at WinHEC 2006, Lexar is demonstrating its recently introduced SAFE PSD S1100, the company's first enterprise-class USB Personal Storage Device, featuring a multi-layered security architecture.

Lexar - AES hardware encryption
Two major components of the S1100's security architecture are Lexar's PSD-Lock technology, an embedded device access control technology that enables USB device locking, and onboard 256-bit "on-the-fly" AES hardware encryption. The S1100 Personal Storage Device (PSD) is developed for enterprises and government agencies that want their employees to be able to store and access data on PSDs, but also want to make sure that data is kept secure and private in case of device loss or theft.
