NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - InfosecurityNY Booth 3318 -- SafeBoot, a leading vendor of enterprise-class security software for the protection of data on laptops and other mobile devices, today announced a significant expansion of its SafeBoot® for USB product line with the launch of its standalone SafeBoot® for USB Phantom and Hard Disk. The announcement was made from the floor of Infosecurity New York, a leading Information Security industry event being held Sept 11-12, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

The new devices are aimed at the consumer and SMB markets, and offer the benefit of having a self-contained, standalone configuration and user enrollment. In addition, SafeBoot launched a non-biometric SafeBoot® for USB Phantom, with a password-only option for authentication.

Devices range in three models: Standard, Phantom and Hard Disk, each with its unique features and benefits.

"The new SafeBoot for USB Phantom and Hard Disk take SafeBoot for USB to the next level and open the market for retailers to place devices on their shelves," said SafeBoot for USB Product Manager Tom de Jongh. "Customers are provided a convenient out-of-the-box version, that is simple to configure without the need for administration rights or installation of any software or drivers for maximum mobility and flexibility. They simply plug in, set up their password and go."

The new devices offer companies an extremely cost-effective option for transporting data securely, anytime and anywhere, since no administration rights or installation software is required for configuration or deployment.
