Nero SecurDisc: Improved security for optical storage media

Nero says the improved data-protection technology should increase the chances of recovering content from damaged discs

Nero, makers of optical media-burning software, has announced a new version of its SecurDisc data- protection technology, which should increase your chances of recovering content from damaged CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs.

Due in April, SecurDisc 2.0 also promises improved data security through password protection and authentication through use of digital signatures. Nero announced its SecurDisc update plans this week at the CeBIT technology trade show in Hannover, Germany.

SecurDisc is integrated in Nero 9; the new version will appear in future Nero products.The technology provides protection against disc deterioration through redundancy and defect management.

No special hardware is required to use SecurDisc 2.0's new features. The technology embeds into the media a viewer app that runs automatically when a disc is played, and decrypts the disc's contents once the user enters the correct password.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
