Milpitas, CA—A global brand of flash memory products, Lexar added the Lexar JumpDrive Tough USB flash drive. The drive was developed to withstand tough conditions, such as impact, pressure, weather and water—all while protecting its contents with advanced security software.
The JumpDrive Tough combines a rugged yet stylish look with secure, high-speed performance. The lightweight USB 3.1 drive is built to be impact/pressure (up to 750 psi), weather (-13°F to 300°F) and water resistant (up to 98 feet).
It comes equipped with EncryptStick Lite software, an advanced security solution with 256-bit AES encryption to help to securely protect files against corruption, loss and deletion. The flash drive is also engineered to enable users to securely transfer photos, videos and files with speeds up to 150MB/s read and 60MB/s write.
According to specs, users can transfer a 3-gigabyte (GB) HD video clip in less than one minute. In comparison, it takes four minutes using a standard USB 2.0 drive. The drive is also backward compatible with USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices.
