Sandisk's Cruzer Enterprize

December 5, 2008 When we pointed out that the AES encryption functionality on board Iomega's eGo Encrypt hard drive didn't function under OS X, turns out we might have been unfairly singling it out - as Sandisk's Cruzer Enterprise has just claimed the title of the world's first encryptable flash drive to fully function on Macintosh operating systems.

The Cruzer Enterprise is available in sizes up to 8GB, with on-board hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption which makes it "extremely difficult" for your precious data to be recovered by unauthorized users. The device can be initialized on a Mac or PC and subsequently used on either platform.

A firmware update has been released for existing users of the Cruzer Enterprise and is available at http://www.sandisk-enterprise.com/macupdater.
