Secure My DATA! New AES 256bit Encryption USB Key

Here’s the latest USB key from Green-House: the Pico Drive ST. Inside this nice little body (case) is an AES 256bit hardware encrypter, and a maximum of 8GB of memory. Our USB key is compatible with PC and MAC, is Ready Boost ready, and works flawlessly with PS3.

Now… I may be the only one here who thinks so, but who needs this security feature? Please explain how YOU’D use a device like this.

    It might be more targeted for commercial applications, or government officials. For personal use, I can’t think of it being neccessary, other than being a ‘cool’ function.

  • MicroDesign

    I can. I have loads of passwords and hashes. (Never use the same password on diffirent sites). Such a flashdrive would be perfect for me.

  • Thetrue

    I agree. I would use it for passwords and confidencial docs & datas (like p0rn lol!).

  • darkfader

    I want an encrypted memory stick with programmable CPU and mini display and an OK button. MP3 support optional.
    Then after the stick has logged into a secure website using the OK button, it will pass control to the host (running a portable browser of course).

    We all have things to protect, like clients data bases, personal data, and loads of stuff that isn’t for all eyes

  • SamCal

    I use a Kingston 256-bit AES protected 8GB stick. Think about how much info can be stored on 8GB and how you’d be hard pressed to to remember to only keep non-private stuff on it! With this one, you set up a password to get into it, but if anyone enters the wrong password a number of times (you choose) then the on-board security features locks up everything and it becomes useless to someone else (such as a thief). Have to reformat the device to reuse it.

    By the way, works great with RoboForm2Go on int. Plug it in and have all your logins, passwords, etc. available instantly. Plus they’re bouble encypted in case you ever lose the stick.
