Three years ago, the largest USB flash drives available were powerful 1GB devices, which cost about £ 140. Today you can pay £ 30 less for 16 times the capacity, with additional features such as security.
Finally, to SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise, a secure flash drive designed primarily for business. In a smart way, the software to access the encrypted flash partition runs from a second unencrypted partition. Therefore, you can access the encrypted area from any computer.
The really smart part is that with additional management software, stored data and passwords can be managed centrally on a network. This is an advantage for companies that respect security, although they are not very useful for most home users and you pay a premium for it – the tested 1 GB drive costs more than the 4 GB Lexar model. However, it’s fast (58 seconds to write, 46 seconds to read), so it might be a good option if you regularly carry sensitive data with you.
