Mar 23, 2011, 09:30 ET from LucidPort Technology, Inc.

BOSTON, March 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LucidPort Technology today demonstrated the CipherGuard Computer Encryption System at the SecureWorld Expo.  The CipherGuard secures the private information on a computer with a physical key.

Like a key for your computer, the CipherGuard protects your sensitive information with full AES-256 encryption. Plug in the CipherGuard to access your files. Unplug it to secure them. No passwords to remember or change. The CipherGuard guards your data from key-loggers, malware, and thieves even if your computer is not password protected.

"Save sensitive files directly on your local hard drive without worrying about hackers stealing your data," said Reid Augustin, Vice President of Product Development at LucidPort.  "The CipherGuard's physical security gives you the peace of mind that passwords cannot."

CipherGuard technology offers hardware-based endpoint data protection without the hassles and hazards of passwords.  Unlike encrypted hard disks or thumb drives, the CipherGuard provides unlimited storage space with a fixed investment. A single CipherGuard can be used to encrypt multiple drives (including USB drives and flash keys) on multiple computers.

The CipherGuard will be available in Q2 from,, and from the LucidPort website (, part# USB800).
