LaCie SAFE Hard Drives

LaCie today announced it has expanded its range of LaCie SAFE Hard Drives to include a desktop edition with enhanced security features. The new secure desktop range complements its mobile hard drives with biometric access control designed to protect confidential data from unauthorized use. The new LaCie SAFE Hard Drive comes in capacities of 160GB ($180), 320GB ($220) or 500GB ($370) with a universal Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface for use on PC and/or Mac. Enhanced security features include an internal drive lock and an external port for attaching an optional chain lock. In addition to biometric access control via a simple fingerprint swipe, LaCie SAFE Desktop & Mobile Hard Drives now come with internal firmware called "Drive Lock" that prevents data from being accessed if removed from the case and plugged in to another machine. In addition, the drives ship with LaCie 1-Click Backup Software for PC/Mac and full-featured LaCie SilverKeeper Backup Software for Mac OS X. The drives are now available.
