SanDisk Corp. has acquired MDRM, a privately-held Israeli company focused on developing products for distributing secure content through flash memory cards.

Founded in 2002 by CEO Dan Harkabi and CTO Gidi Elazar, MDRM has worked closely with SanDisk and adapted the SanDisk flash controller to create a version of SanDisk's Cruzer USB flash drive that can deliver content in a secure environment.

The first application of the technology is BookLocker, which allows students to carry electronic versions of their textbooks on a device weighing less than 1 ounce. For textbook publishers, BookLocker offers a system solution that keeps the content secure, according to the companies.

MDRM has been renamed SanDisk Secure Content Solutions and will continue to promote BookLocker with other partners through the U.S. educational system.
