New secure DVD media tips up

Verbatim has launched a recordable DVD that protects files using 256-bit AES software encryption. Data can be securely stored on the disc and transported safely with the knowledge that the contents of the disc cannot be accessed illegitimately, says the company.

SecureSave prevents unauthorised access of saved data through the use of a mandatory security password. Each DVD- R is capable of holding 4.5GB and the software loaded on the DVD starts automatically, making the process of encrypting the data on the DVD straightforward.

The discs also support multi-session recording, allowing up to 4.5GB of data to be written over several sessions.

“SecureSave is the optimal solution for users who wish to ensure their sensitive data remains safe, should it fall in to the wrong hands” said Torsten Leye, Marketing Manager Optical at Verbatim EUMEA.

The DVDs are available now, priced at $9.99 each.
