Trust Digital encrypts handheld data

Applied Technologies subsidiary Trust Digital on Wednesday announced a new product to secure data stored on the memory cards used by handheld devices. By encrypting the data stored on memory cards, such as the IBM Microdrive, the company's PDASecure protects the information from theft. The software works on laptops, handhelds, digital cameras and MP3 players. Trust Digital envisions selling the product to government agencies to protect sensitive data and to hospitals to secure medical records kept on handhelds.
