Although it employs advanced military-grade security, it is a cinch to use and requires only a password to unlock it. Manage all of your online accounts and passwords in one place with direct access and protection against keystroke-logging spyware and other online threats. If Cryptochip detects any physical tampering by a thief or a hacker, it will self-destruct. And if your IronKey is ever lost or stolen, you can easily restore your lost data and passwords to a new IronKey.

But this product is great, and it has the convenience of a flash drive, th security of a really good, open source encryption program, and good, simple, basic software for dealing with it all. Plus a very good web site for storing and changing passwords and security information.
This is a great, reliable, and reasonably priced solution. I am 100% happy!
I highly recommend this as well as use of a free program called "True Crypt". (Crank up your favorite search engine and look for "True Crypt") Using this on an Ironkey gives you the best security available IMHO. >^..^<
**Warning: don't just casually plug this in to any computer when you first receive it. Make sure you have enought time to perform the entire setup (10-15 mins) and that your PC is virus-free --preferably your primary home PC. The first time you plug it in, the security setup interface auto-launches, and you have no choice but to complete it right then and there.
1. password management -- stores logins (user ids and passwords) for all the sites you visit
2. Security -- The thing will self destruct if someone tries to log in incorrectly more than ten times
3. Secure web surfing -- Can surf anonymously. People can't track where you visit online. Also will bypass filters. Showed that feature to our IT guy... he was impressed and appalled at the same time...
1. Limited to Firefox 2.0 as your browser. If you upgrade to to Firefox 3.0 you lose password management
2. Secure web surfing is REALLY slow.
I'm still playing with it, but so far, really like it
A security feature which is very good to have unless you use many passwords and forgot which one you used for the thumb drive is the one where the contents gets erased if there are 10 attempts in a row with the wrong password (I got up to number 9 and just survived that one on an occasion). With that in mind, you have to be very careful not to log in 10 times in a row with the wrong password. It would then become a paperweight. If someone got a hold of it, I would trust it would self destruct if they tried to hack into it.
I think I will always own one of these... they are worth it.
