LaCie announced data encryption and password protection for its CooKey key-shaped flash drives:
Today LaCie announced its award-winning CooKey now includes a custom-built software suite for data security – LaCie's Private-Public software for data encryption and password protection, PC/Mac® Lock for simple and secure computer access and one-to-one storage from Wuala.
KEEP SENSITIVE DATA SECURE
The compact, key-shaped design of the CooKey makes it convenient for sharing information with colleagues and friends. Now, with LaCie's Private-Public software, users don't have to worry about their files getting into the wrong hands even in the case of loss or theft.
Simply choose the amount of capacity to encrypt and access, then type a custom password. It's that simple to keep data secure.
LOCK AND UNLOCK A COMPUTER
LaCie PC/Mac Lock software allows a user to log on and off a computer simply by inserting the CooKey. That's it! With PC/Mac Lock, users can keep their computers as secure as their homes—and only they have the key. Once the CooKey is plugged in to the computer's USB port, PC/Mac Lock will automatically log the user in to the operating system—then when it's removed, they're logged out, providing protection and security. Just one LaCie USB key can lock and unlock an unlimited number of Macs or PCs.
GET DOUBLE STORAGE WITH WUALA
LaCie has also integrated secure online storage from Wuala into the CooKey, making storing and sharing files, photos or videos easier than ever. You get a one-to-one storage ratio with Wuala (the 8GB CooKey comes with 8GB of Wuala storage, for example), doubling storage capacity or protection.
DOWNLOAD PRIVATE-PUBLIC ON ANY HARD DRIVE
LaCie recognises data security is crucial for any storage device. This is especially true in the case of shared USB keys or when mobile hard drives are lost or stolen. Even home desktop storage may need to be protected from access by children. Coinciding with the announcement of the CooKey, LaCie also offers the Private-Public software as a complementary download. Now anyone with a storage device can secure his or her files. Simply visit www.lacie.com/privatepublic, download the software, and enjoy full data protection.
The LaCie CooKey is available in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB capacities through the LaCie Online Store, LaCie Corner, and LaCie Reseller+ starting at $29.99.
