Latest Version of NTI Ninja Security Software for All USB Devices

NewTech Infosystems (NTI) is shipping the latest version of NTI Ninja, the preferred data security solution for users and manufacturers of USB Flash and other external USB drives. In addition to the user-adjustable partitioning, anti-tamper encryption and password protection, the new version has been enhanced with a new level of convenience. Users can now access the secured data stored on their private partition from any PC, anywhere - there is no need to pre-install Ninja on the PC to access the users' private data.

Gartner Dataquest expects the worldwide USB flash drive market to grow from $2.3 billion in revenues / 84.6 million units in 2006 to $2.9 billion in revenues / 98.2 million in units by 2008.

"Flash drives are ideal for the growing number of business people, students,
and consumers who want to keep their digital data with them wherever they go", said Bill Yao, NTI President and CEO. "In addition to being able to store, protect, and share the information on these devices, users also want convenient access, and that is what NTI Ninja delivers. Users can now access the private data stored on their Ninja-protected USB device from any PC without having to pre-load the Ninja software on the PC."

While the password protection applications that are included with some flash drives offer protection against unauthorized access or stolen data, they create a problem for users that want to share data on their portable devices without having to reveal their password.

NTI Ninja provides quick self-defense against unauthorized access by using 256-bit driver-level encryption technology to create a private partition on the USB device. The user simply enters a desired size for the public partition and Ninja will automatically set the size of the private partition based on the total capacity of the USB device. After entering a password and a password hint, the user only needs to click Start and their new Ninja device will be created in a snap. With this approach, users can easily access and share commonly used data on the public partition while simultaneously hiding and restricting access to confidential data on the private partition.

NTI Ninja uses up to 256-bit driver-level encryption technology to ensure that sensitive data in the private partition cannot be accessed in case the drive is ever lost or stolen.

NTI Ninja supports FAT, FAT32, and NTFS formats and can be used on virtually any USB storage device including flash drives, micro drives, and external hard drives. NTI Ninja software is designed for PCs running Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
