Secure Portable USB Devices

When working on a case that involves sensitive or confidential data, the capability and requirement of securing that data is critical.

Apricorn products have been around for a while and provide numerous product solutions that secure, portable and very reasonably priced.

For security, all of the Apricorn products include 256-bit Military Grade AES-XTS Hardware Encryption and many of the products are also FIPS 140-2 Level 2 Validated*.  In short, they are serious about securing data.ask3_straighton

The Aegis Secure Key Flash Drive comes in USB 3 and USB 2 options and capacities ranging from 30GB – 240GB.

The Aegis Padlock Drive is available with USB 3, USB 2 and eSATA interfaces and 500GB – 2TB in size.
