Toshiba announces Encrypted USB Flash Drive

Are you one of those who are strict when it comes to data security especially with your flash drives? Then you might want to take a look at the Toshiba Encrypted USB Flash Drive which comes with a a built-in mini-keyboard for PIN input.

The Toshiba Encrypted USB Flash Drive still functions like a regular flash drive, however, users of the drive are first required to enter their secure PIN via its built-in mini keyboard before using. Once access is granted, an LED indicator will light up letting the user now that the drive is unlocked and ready to be plugged into any USB 2.0 port. When unplugged, the drive automatically locks itself.


It utilizes a hardware based military grade AES 256-bit encryption and is equipped with a Brute Force Hack Defense Mechanism that will wipe the data in the flash drive after ten consecutive unsuccessful attempts to enter the secure PIN.

The Toshiba Encrypted USB Flash Drive is available in the U.S. and comes in four storage variants with the following MSRPs: $95 for 4GB, $112 for 8GB, $140 for 16GB, and $200 for 32GB.

    Costly, but for its security level, reasonable na rin siguro. Di naman ito para sa mga tipikal na taong ang pinagiingatan lang e ang sarili nilang nude selfies at mga scandal o koleksyon ng porno. Of course yung mga ganun ira-RAR mo nalang at i-e-encrypt. This is meant for vital data. Pero pa’no pag nabasa o nadamage sa ibang paraan..? :/

    Di ko mapanuod yung video. Bawal. </3
