Among the many contenders wanting to change the way laptop users back up their files, Sony is introducing the world first SD card suitable for file back ups. The cards which will be available in 16Gb, 32Gb and 64Gb will come along with a software that will enable “Real-Time Back-Up”. SD cards have been used primarily to transfer data from a camcorder to a laptop but never as a means for safe backup option. To ensure data-protection the cards will be encrypted using AES 256-bit.
The cards are to be released in Japan only at the moment with no date and confirmation of further deployment of the products across the globe.
