High Capacity Mobile DataVault 3DX and Ultra-Rugged Mobile DataVault 2LX Incorporate Data Security Software Combining Industry-Standard Encryption to Deliver the Ultimate Secure Transportable Storage Solution and Solve Industry Problems with Stolen Data

MILPITAS, Calif. – January 16, 2007– Olixir Technologies, a provider of technologically advanced ruggedized, transportable data storage solutions, today announced that its popular Mobile DataVault family of high-performance ruggedized transportable external hard drives now includes powerful encryption software to provide a complete, secure solution for storing, archiving and transporting critical or sensitive data.

Residing on both the high-capacity Mobile DataVault 3DX and ultra-rugged Mobile DataVault 2LX external drives, the new security functionality provides easy-to-use data protection utilizing powerful, industry-standard encryption algorithms. Users simply drag-and-drop sensitive files into an encrypted folder that is pre-installed on the Mobile DataVault which provides file compression and robust tamper-resistant password-protection. File and folder auditing tracks and records when each file was accessed and what changes were made.

“We are seeing increasing adoption of our Mobile DataVault products by government agencies and large corporations who have the need to store, transport and archive growing amounts of critical data,” explained Darshan Shah, President of Olixir Technologies. “However, a number of these end users have expressed a concern that while the shock-protection aspect of the storage device is very important to prevent the loss of data due to physical damage to the drive itself, there are strong concerns about thefts of portable media, namely tapes, that have occurred amongst several agencies of the Federal Government and corporations in the past two years. To address this concern, Olixir felt it essential to provide robust encryption security for that data in the event that the drive falls into the wrong hands in the case of a theft or due to actual loss. The addition of this robust security software to our drives is the key component to News Release making our solution the ideal, secure storage solution for any organization that needs to store, transport and protect sensitive data.”

About the Mobile DataVault Family of Transportable External Hard Drives

The high-capacity Mobile DataVault 3DX and ultra-rugged Mobile DataVault 2LX Transportable External Hard Drive, available in capacities up to 750GB and 160GB respectively, are an easy-to-install secure data storage solution for any computing platform. With industry-leading shock-protection capability, the Mobile DataVault 3DX is designed to withstand non-operational shocks up to 1,200Gs whereas the ultra-ruggedized Mobile DataVault 2LX can absorb shocks in excess of 12,000Gs, exceeding the MIL-STD-810F transit drop test.

Using a versatile interface, the Mobile DataVault drives can be used interchangeably with Olixir’s USB 2.0, Firewire, Serial ATA, and PCMCIA cable interfaces. In addition, the Mobile DataVault drives can be used as a hot-swappable cartridge with Olixir’s 5.25-inch DataBay, in the chassis-based FastRestore SE Backup and Disaster Recovery System, or in the RAID-capable Mobile DataVault Enterprise/Custom System.

The Mobile DataVault drives, which support plug-and-play and hot-swap operation with Macintosh OS 8.6 and higher, Windows 2000/ME/XP and Linux operating systems, are about the size of a VHS tape and compact enough to fit into the palm of a hand – making them transportable in any briefcase, safe, cabinet or other external storage container.

Available in 160GB, 250GB, 400GB, 500GB, and 750GB capacities, Olixir’s Mobile DataVault 3DX drives are available now through Envoy Data, PC Mall, ProTel and other resellers worldwide at list prices of $299, $379, $599, $749, and $849 respectively, with USB 2.0 cable.
