Seagate Unveils New Solutions

LAS VEGAS -- Seagate (NYSE: STX) dramatically strengthened the security and accessibility of digital content with its introductions today of the Maxtor(R) BlackArmor(TM) storage solution, an AES government-grade encrypting external storage device, and Central Axis technology, a software upgrade that will provide secure remote access and file sharing for existing Maxtor Shared Storage II network drives. The company unveiled these products at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show, where it also announced its PipelineHD(TM) Series hard drives, a new family of purpose-built hard disc drives for DVRs; enhancements to its popular FreeAgent(TM) storage solutions and a series of partnerships broadening the market for its D.A.V.E.(TM) portable, wireless storage device.

"Consumers are creating and sharing more digital content than ever, and in fact, Americans alone watched 100 billion web videos this year. Content is everywhere, which is fueling the need for more storage everywhere," said Bill Watkins, Seagate CEO. "Seagate connects people with all of their content, and helps them safeguard, securely share, access, and enjoy it, whenever and wherever they want."
