SanDisk and McAfee today announced SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise with anti-malware protection from McAfee. In addition to protecting corporate USB flash drive users from data leaks, the solution includes the McAfee Scan Engine, which offers advanced heuristic analysis for comprehensive detection of both known and unknown threats. Cruzer Enterprise safeguards all files stored on the drive with advanced hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption. Users are required to create a complex password during the set-up process. The combination of encryption and password protection makes it extremely difficult for unauthorized users to access data should the drive be lost or stolen.
SanDisk Cruzer Enterprise with McAfee security protects users from infection with an automatic anti-malware scan that prohibits file transfers to the secure USB drive when it detects infection on a host PC. The addition of McAfee Scan Engine and virus definition files (DATs) prevents malware from attaching itself to the portable drive and in turn, infecting the internal enterprise host. The scan engine examines every file saved or copied to the USB flash drive.
