SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise USB Flash Drive
25 March 2009
Conclusion: Performance: The test system used in this review was a Dell OptiPlex 755. The computer came equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 800MHz memory, a Western Digital WD800JD 80GB SATA hard drive and an ATI Radeon HD 2400XT 256MB video card. For the operating system, I installed a fresh copy of Windows XP with Service Pack 3.
Pros: Mandatory security on all files, Hardware based 256-bit AES encryption, Includes "lockdown" mode for increased security, Fast transfer speeds, Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS X, Can be centrally managed (using SanDisk CMC software), Two year warranty
Cons: Cap cannot be placed on opposite end of drive, Expensive
Summary: The USB ‘thumb' drive started life as a simple way to move files around without company admins knowing anything about it, a sort of sneakernet for the 21st Century. This period of naïve technological glow lasted about a year. But now we're in the post-naivety phase and the drives are changing.
Excerpt: Most enterprises have gone out of their way to protect their data from outside intruders. The emphasis the past few years have been to prevent people from accessing enterprise data from over the Internet. That has led to the installation of spam filters, firewalls, encryption, strengthened passwords, and antivirus software. Unfortunately, a new hole has been found when it comes to the ability for someone to access corporate data. That hole is external storage.
Summary: Security is a concern for everyone, we all worry about hacking attempts, phishing, fraud and scams, but businesses have got more to worry about concerning data theft and loss. USB drives are a great way to transfer data to and from places, but they’re not exactly secure, and being so small they’re easily lost.
Pros: Fairly fast in comparison, Secure, Easy to use
Cons: For full security you’ve got to purchase CMC software, Cap could be easily lost
Summary: V jednoduchosti Cruzeru Enterprise tkví jeho síla. Přístroj podporuje jak Windows, tak Mac prostředí, a pravděpodobně předurčuje další vývoj segmentu zařízení pro fyzický přenos dat. Poněkud vyšší pořizovací cenu lze obhájit přidanou hodnotou, kterou představuje opravdu důkladné zabezpečení.
