Product Description

Capacity: 8 GB

Designed for confidential and sensitive information.
256-bit hardware encryption and a durable rubber housing for secure transport of confidential information

Corsair Flash Padlock 2 is designed for confidential and sensitive information. Your files are protected from snooping with 256-bit AES hardware encryption, and the durable rubber housing helps protect them from the elements, too. An easy-to-use, integrated PIN pad means no software is needed, so Padlock works equally well with Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, and even Linux-based systems

Note: Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. The actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products.


Features
  • Compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Me, Mac OS X v9.x and above, Linux Kernel 2.4.2 and higher
  • Plug-n-Play compatible via USB 1.1 or 2.0 port
  • Secure 256-bit hardware AES encryption
  • User customizable 4-10 digit personal identification number to lock and unlock
  • Built-in hacking detection locks device for 2 minutes after 5 failed attempts
  • Durable rubber, shock-proof housing

Customer Reviews

The product and the supplier are very good.

You can also set a master password so that if an employee forgets their personal code, you can still access the content.

I work in IT, and part of our regulatory compliance is that we have to have USB drives secure so that in case one is lost, there's nothing potentially damaging to the organization. Sadly, most of the time it's hard to enforce compliance because it's too confusing or too difficult for the users to do.

Corsair's solution is pretty slick with hardware level access to the USB drive. Configuration (once you free it from the shrinkwrap without injuring yourself) is really easy - hold down the key button for 3 seconds, set your PIN, hit the key button again, verify your PIN and hit the key button again and that's it. The green light flashes and then you know you're able to insert the USB drive into your PC or Mac (I tested this on my Dell desktop and Macbook.) If the light's not flashing, Windows and OS X won't recognize the drive. It literally is that simple and takes 30 seconds to do.

Compared to devices like the Kingston Digital Traveler Secure 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive, which are 4x the cost and rely on software based security that's not cross platform, Corsair's solution is great.

The performance of the drive is pretty good - it's as fast as my Sandisk 8GB Cruzer Titanium USB 2.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ7-8192-A11, Retail Package). I was able to copy large files over (photos in RAW format) and the drive seemed responsive enough.

The drive itself is typical of most Corsair drives - it's built ruggedly and you get the impression that you can run over this in your car and it'll still be safe.

I won't repeat everything the other 3 reviewers have sad about the padlock 2. It's convenient, secure, and rugged. However, I can't give it all 5 stars for 2 reasons:

1) I carry my padlock 2 in my pocket, and the soft outer covering quickly attracts and keeps lint and fuzz. Thus, the attractive surface quickly becomes unattractive (minor).

2) The big issue is the internal battery. I have had my padlock 2 about 3 months probably, and the internal batter seems to have lost the ability to keep a charge. Thus, it needs to be plugged into the computer to have enough power to unlock it. This has become a major inconvenience, and it loses some of the "wow" when I show it to other people.

I bought 6 of these secure USB memory devices. One of them had an interesting experience. It went through the washer in a pocket. When it came out the password was not needed to get to the "secure encrypted" data. Having the password protection disappear is bad enough but getting the data exposed is a BIG SECURITY VULNERABILITY.

About a week later another of the Corsair Padlock drive's data was accessible (without entering a password and without washing it).

--- updated a week later ---

Corsair responded, appreciating being notified of the bug, and in what is an unusual move, published a detailed workaround on their web site. It is at
[...].
Based on their heads-up analysis of the situation and quick technical response I recommend their product and will continue using it. Note that the web commentary about easily defeating the encryption of the Corsair Padlock relates to a previous design, not the Padlock 2.

If you want to have important files extremely portable, yet secure and available to use on ANY computer including MACs, Windows, Linux, even Android machines, this is the device to get. It is entirely self-contained- there is no software to run on the computer. Just enter the PIN, plug this device in and it appears as a normal flash drive. When you disconnect from the USB port on the computer it automatically locks down. If you need even more storage and can tolerate a little less portability, this is what you want:Apricorn Aegis Padlock 640 GB USB 2.0 256-bit Encrypted Portable External Hard Drive A25-PL256-640 (Grey)

You can set a 4-10 digit pin to access the data on the drive. There are only 5 keys used to enter the PIN which you would think limits the range of PIN numbers, but since you can have a string of up to 10 digits, there are 5^10 possible PINs - that's 9,765,625 possible PINs. Brute force attacks are impractical because entering the wrong PIN 5 times shuts the device down for 2 minutes. It would take months to years to brute-force an unknown PIN.

Operation is simple. Enter the PIN and the green led blinks to indicate that the device is now open. You have 20 seconds to plug it into your computer where it will be recognized as a flash drive by whatever OS your computer runs, or it will lock down again automatically. As long as it is plugged into the USB port, your files are accessible. The device appears to behave just like a normal flash drive- you can drag and drop, copy and paste, or save files to it just like any other flash drive.
