High Density Devices Starts Manufacturing the SecureD Product Line in the United States

North Carolina Facility to Manufacture SecureD Line of Hardware-Based Hard Drive Encryption Technology

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - October 24, 2007) - High Density Devices, a leading provider of hardware-based hard drive encryption technology, today announced the company will begin manufacturing the proprietary circuit for High Density Devices' SecureD line of hard drive encryption in the United States. The manufacturing facility, based in North Carolina, will manufacture and bundle SecureD products with hardware components (e.g. hard drives), package the bundled products with smart cards, and then ship them in response to product orders.

"As High Density Devices expands into the U.S. market, it is important to be able to manufacture large order volumes, ensure products are shipped quickly, and provide a world-class manufacturing facility. By locating manufacturing operations in North Carolina, it will be much easier to satisfy those requirements," said Stein Aamot, CEO for High Density Devices.

HDD will manufacture the full line of SecureD products for the U.S. market from North Carolina. The specific form factors for the SecureD 256 bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption are:

--  SecureD Desktop: a PCI card that works with any existing SATA hard
--  SecureD Laptop: a completely integrated 2.5-inch 60GB hard drive
--  SecureD USB: an external 120GB drive that provides secure, portable
    data storage and backup

The manufacturing facility is located in close proximity to High Density Devices' United States headquarters in Charlotte, NC.
