CA has announced the release of its Internet Security Suite 2007 software on a two gigabyte (GB) credit card-sized flash drive memory card. Once the CA software is installed, the unique, ultra slim, wallet-size flash cards can be used to comfortably transport 2GB worth of personal items such as digital music, photos and documents. The 2GB flash drive is included with the purchase of the CA software.
Customers will be able to buy a pre-loaded flash drive with CA Internet Security Suite 2007 from July. The program works with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, and the flash drive allows users to take advantage of Windows Vista ReadyBoost technology that can be used to speed applications and boot-up time for Windows Vista systems.
The flash drives, manufactured by Ultra Products, Inc., for CA, work with Windows 2000, XP or Vista systems. The drives require one available Universal Serial Bus (USB) port with a USB 2.0 interface, but are also compatible with USB 1.1 ports. Typical transfer speed is 480 Megabits per second (Mbps). The 2GB of storage will become available after installation and deletion of CA software from the drive (70 MB for CA Internet Security Suite 2007). The drives also come with a limited lifetime warranty from Ultra.
