Ricoh introduced EncryptEase, a
secure intelligent recordable compact disc that utilizes built-in software to
create a unique hybrid CD-R technology. EncryptEase is the first model to
launch in Ricoh's new RR branded product line, which combines CD-R and
CD-ROM technology in order to produce advanced hybrid products for the
consumer and business communities.
In today's technology-centric world, it is imperative that mission
critical information remains as secure as possible, which can be difficult
when information is often shared and stored on easily accessible software
and/or hardware. Ricoh's EncryptEase hybrid security CD-R features
sophisticated solutions that include strong copy guards, password-protected
access and scheduled expiration dates. Through the hybrid concept, the CD-R
section automatically stores information, while the encoding/decoding, data
compression, writing and copy-guard functions are pre-installed in the ROM
section of the disc.
Ensuring protection from unauthorized parties, information burned onto
EncryptEase can only be decrypted and retrieved with the assigned password,
ensuring safe storage, management and offline-distribution of contents -- an
ideal solution for storing sensitive data. Additionally, EncryptEase offers
the same input and retrieval functions as a conventional CD-R, and as a
value-add, it features a pre-recorded encryption application in the ROM.
Designed with the end-user in mind, EncryptEase is a multi-session CD-R
that allows data to be added in up to 20 different sessions, and for
ease-of-use, the software launches immediately upon inserting the disc into a
