Removable Data Storage Cartridge Security Issues Iomega Zip drives and disks are unique when compared to other forms of mainstream removable data storage. The security features focus on the customer’s needs rather than the needs of industry-driven digital rights management (DRM). Iomega has worked hard to make your data safe and secure. Here are three ways Iomega products meet our customer’s security needs: 1. Data reliability and interchangeability between a huge install base of drives. 2. Personal information security built right into each Zip drive and disk. 3. A factory unique media serial number on every Zip disk
