Secure Usb Drive
Privacy and security are fundamental when it comes to storage of data. People look for safer locations to store crucial files offline where unauthorized users can’t gain access into. Secure USB flash drives such as the iStorage datAshur 256-bit encrypted flash drive is designed to provide military grade hardware storage and contains other key features with regards to data storage and protection.
The iStorage datAshur uses a tiny rechargeable battery which prompts users to enter PIN of between 7 to 15 digits and this is done before the USB is inserted into a computer. With a brute force hack defense mechanism, it ensures data is deleted forever from the flash drive if the flash drive experiences a brute force attack, a situation caused by incorrectly entering PIN several times. Datashur is compatible with various operating systems including Windows, Mac and Linux. When the flash drive is disconnected from a computer, it employs its automatic lock feature. The datashur allows the user to reset the flash drive from a number of randomly generated encryption keys and it also allows for setting of a new PIN in case the old one is forgotten. The flash drive has memory storage capacity ranging from 4GB, 16 GB and 32 GB and it doesn’t require any software or drivers to be installed in order to run. It is designed with LED light indicators in which red light indicates that the device is locked whereas green light indicated that the device is unlocked.
The casing of the flash drive is robust as it provides a layer of protection. The battery inside the drive periodically charges the drive when connected to a computer and the setup is easy as no drivers or software are needed. The drive has an automatic lock property which is essential in preventing unauthorized access. The drive is secured with AES 265-bit encryption technology meaning that data cannot be decrypted or moved to a different location when the incorrect key is entered. The device has simple instructions for testing the PIN code with first, plugging it into a USB port then waiting for the LEDs to be stable then unplugging it so that it powers off. The third step is to unlock the device where the user follows the instructions kkk where the first k prepares to accept a PIN code. The user then inserts PIN digits at the text.
Equipped with features necessary for ensuring that organizational or individual data is not breached, the iStorage datashur flash drive is among the best secured data storage devices in the market to have so as to provide protection from external threats which may lead to data manipulation or loss.
