This 2GB USB flash drive has a switch that can be moved to make the drive 'write-protected'. We developed this drive to enable you to close the switch and put the drive in virtually any computer without fear that a virus will jump onto the drive.
We also include optional Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption and password protection software.
The drive is encased in a form-fitting clear Silicone sleeve. The sleeve makes the drive more durable and protects it from hard knocks or drops.
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a specification for the encryption of electronic data. It has been adopted by the U.S. government and is now used worldwide.
The write-protect switch and AES encryption software and Password Protection make this our safest and most secure flash drive.
The encryption software uses volume encryption. With volume encryption you are relieved of the burden of individually encrypting and decrypting files or needing to remember which file is in what state, etc. A single volume, or container file, is created to hold all of your sensitive information. Volumes are associated with a Windows drive letter to make them easy to use. After supplying your password only once, you can read, write, copy, delete, rename, drag, drop or do anything you would ordinarily expect to do with any other drive; only in this case, the data is transparently encrypted and decrypted for you.
How strong is a 128-bit key? For starters, a 128-bit key has 3.4 x 1038 possible values. That's 1021 times stronger than a 56-bit DES key. The famous "DES Cracker" machines built in the late 1990's could recover a 56-bit key in a matter of hours. If this time could subsequently be reduced to one second (meaning trying 255 keys per second), then it would take that same machine approximately 149 thousand-billion (149 trillion) years to crack a 128-bit key.
