Dual Security Protection for Portable Passwords


SanDisk is now shipping U3 smart USB Flash drives with added security, pre-loaded with SignupShield Password Manager Software. This featured application will be available on both the new Cruzer Micro and Titanium U3 smart flash drives.

Bedford, NH -- May 17, 2006 -- Protecteer LLC, a leading provider of password management & protection tools, today announced that password files created by its SignupShield Password Manager product, shipping pre-loaded on all SanDisk’s secure Cruzer U3 smart drives, are now protected by two independent security features.
The first level of protection is SanDisk’s new hardware-based access control mechanism which provides for an optional password required to access any file residing on a SanDisk U3 smart flash drive. The second level of protection is provided by SignupShield’s own encryption of password files.

“The availability of dual security protection is an important feature required by security conscious customers. We are very pleased to be able to offer our product on SanDisk’s U3 smart drive platform”, said Protecteer’s CEO Ami Grynberg.

“We added access control mechanism to our new U3 smart lines of Cruzer Micro and Titanium drives in a response to market demand for an overall access control which goes beyond individual applications”, said Mike Morganstern, SanDisk’s USB Product Marketing Manager.. “In the case of SignupShield, this enhances the inherent security required for keeping files safe from peering eyes”.
