Paragon Software Group, a leader in data protection and embedded cross-platform file-access technology, today announced it has secured agreements with leading technology manufacturers Kingston Digital Inc. and ZTE Corporation. Paragon’s Universal File System Driver (UFSD) solutions have been licensed by both companies to fuel mobile product initiatives, allowing them to deliver upon the promise of high performance and interoperability for their customers.

As mobile device usage continues its explosive growth, with a recent study revealing that greater than 50 percent of online time is now spent on mobile platforms, interest in Paragon’s UFSD driver technology is on the rise in the OEM market, according to Tom Fedro, President of Paragon Software Group Corporation.

“Paragon's Universal File System Drivers, including our exFAT and NTFS for Android offerings, play an important role in supporting our tier one OEMs’ efforts in the mobility market by ensuring high performance and complete interoperability with storage media of all kinds,” said Fedro. “We are very excited to have Kingston Digital and ZTE join our long list of OEM clients leveraging Paragon technology to deliver a powerful, uncompromising user experience."

ZTE Corporation, a publicly listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has licensed Paragon’s exFAT/NTFS for Android driver solutions for use with select mobile phones that use microSD cards. Paragon’s software enables these Android-based mobile phones to support 64GB, 128GB and larger microSD cards that are formatted to the exFAT or NTFS file system.

“This capacity boost is critical because, without Paragon UFSD drivers, users would be limited to a maximum of only 32GB of storage per card, missing out on 50 percent or more of valuable storage space to support today’s more data-intensive content, such as video and graphics,” said Fedro.

Kingston Digital Inc., the world's largest independent manufacturer of memory products, is leveraging Paragon UFSD technology as part of an innovative new approach to storage for mobile devices. Many mobile products lack support for SD cards or USB drives so storage options are limited; the Kingston MobileLite Wireless family of media readers fills this market void. These WiFi media streamers incorporate Paragon's embedded exFAT and NTFS for Linux drivers, allowing mobile device owners to free up storage capacity on their devices by easily offloading content to an SDXC flash card or USB drive, which they can access later.
