Lexar, a leading global brand of flash memory products, today announced performance enhancements to its JumpDrive USB 3.0 flash drives, which include the Lexar® JumpDrive® P20, JumpDrive S75, JumpDrive S55, JumpDrive S35, and JumpDrive S25 flash drives. Enhancements include increased read and write speeds for faster transferring of photos, videos, and files, as well as EncryptStickTM Lite software to help protect essential files by providing the option to keep these files in a password protected vault. 

"Flash drives are no longer just used to bring term papers to the library. More often, people are relying on these devices to store movies, transfer photos, and back up important documents. And they want to do all that quickly and securely," said Aaron Lee, director of product marketing, Lexar. "The enhanced JumpDrive USB 3.0 line offers the best of both worlds: increased speed and heightened security."

As one of the fastest USB flash drives available, JumpDrive P20 boasts read speeds up to 400MB/s and write speeds up to 270MB/s*, and is able to transfer a full-length HD movie in less than 40 seconds.** JumpDrive P20 features a sleek design with a metal alloy base and high-gloss mirror top, and also includes a key ring loop. Available in capacities of 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, JumpDrive P20 is built with premium performance and design in mind.

The affordable JumpDrive S35 offers read speeds up to 150MB/s and write speeds up to 60MB/s.* The device also features a stylish, swivel design with an automatically retractable connector and key ring loop.

Each of these JumpDrive USB 3.0 flash drives includes EncryptStickTM Lite software, an advanced security solution with 256-bit AES encryption to help protect essential files against corruption, loss, and deletion. Users can create a password-protected vault that automatically encrypts data stored within it. And for additional peace of mind, files that are deleted from the vault are securely erased and cannot be recovered.

Lexar JumpDrive USB flash drives are compatible with Mac® and PC systems. Furthermore, all Lexar product designs undergo extensive testing in the Lexar Quality Labs, facilities with more than 1,100 digital devices, to ensure performance, quality, compatibility, and reliability.
