Trek 2000 International Ltd (“Trek” or “the Group”) today unveils four new solutions that it will be introducing at the forthcoming CEBIT exhibition in Hanover, Germany.

The four new solutions from Trek are:
1. ThumbDrive® Swipe Armour
2. ThumbDrive® Portable Operating System
3. ThumbDrive® 0.85-inch hard disk drive
4. A New High Speed ThumbDrive®

ThumbDrive® Swipe Armour
The first of its kind in the world to date, the ThumbDrive® Swipe Armour is a solution
whose system incorporates at least four Trek solutions where patents have been filed.
The patent of one of the four solutions, the biometrics, was approved two years ago.
Built upon the concept of a Central Management System (“CMS”), the function of the
ThumbDrive® Swipe Armour is to help organizations protect its information by
delineating different levels of information access for different employees. This is the
first device in the world where the CMS is incorporated into an external USB device.

ThumbDrive® Portable Operating System
The ThumbDrive® Portable Operating System (“OS”) is another first in the world by
Trek. When on the move, the user can plug his ThumbDrive® Portable OS
into another computer and access his operating system. Whilst the Software
Difference ensures that when plugged into other computers, the operating system in
the ThumbDrive® does not affect the operating system of the computer into which the
ThumbDrive® is plugged. This way all parties can share computers yet protect their
own respective information. In addition to the features mentioned above, being a solid state device, the ThumbDrive® Portable OS has a speedier boot up compared to the normal computers and its power consumption is also lower. The improved power
consumption efficiency is due to the fact that the Hard Disk Drive in the computer need not be turned on when the ThumbDrive® Portable OS is in use.

ThumbDrive® 0.85-inch Hard Disk Drive
This is a portable USB enabled hard disk drive with capacities ranging from 2GB – 4
GB with a smaller form factor when compared to the 2.5 inch and 1.8 inch hard disk
drives that are currently being used in the market. The function, size and reliability of
the ThumbDrive® 0.85 Hard Disk Drive is the same as the normal ThumbDrive®. The
advantage lies in its cost efficiency as the cost of the device would be about 15% -
20% lower. The power consumption of this device is also approximately 50% lower
than that of the existing hard disk drive.

New High Speed ThumbDrive®
The new high speed ThumbDrive® will have a reading speed of 30 MB per second
and a writing speed of 27 MB per second. This is almost twice the speed of the
fastest ThumbDrive® currently available in the market with a reading speed of 17MB
per second and a writing speed of 14 MB per second.

Commenting on the series of new solutions introduced to the market today, Mr Henn
Tan, Chairman and CEO of Trek said: “At Trek we only believe in developing killer
applications that are both patentable and commercially viable. As the number of
solutions patented rises, we are now in a position to develop increasingly powerful
solutions by combining a series of different solutions with different capabilities that
can respond to different needs of corporations or sophisticated IT users. ”
