BERLIN, Sept. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lexar, a leading global brand of flash memory products, today announced the Lexar® JumpDrive® M10 Secure USB 3.0 flash drive for safe and high-speed file transfer. The new drive offers EncryptStick Lite software, an advanced security solution with 256-bit AES encryption for comprehensive data protection, the ability to create a single password-protected vault that automatically encrypts data, and a File Shredder feature that permanently deletes files from the device so they cannot be restored. Additionally, the drive sports an easy-to-read, always-on capacity meter to determine available storage space at a glance, even when disconnected.
"The JumpDrive M10 Secure is designed for on-the-go executives, power business users, or anyone holding sensitive information who may want more data security than the average person," said Aaron Lee, director of product marketing, Lexar. "With the ability to create password-protected vaults that automatically encrypt data and virtually 'shred' deleted files, customers can rest assured that their data is safe and secure."*
Offering read speeds up to 100MB/s on all capacities, the drive features write speeds up to 20MB/s on 16GB capacity, up to 30MB/s on 32GB capacities, and up to 55MB/s on 64GB and 128GB capacities. Such speeds allow users to transfer a 3GB HD video clip in less than 90 seconds, 13 times faster than the 20 minutes it takes using a standard USB 2.0 drive.**
