The word “safety” can imply different kinds of judicious personal protection. Safety definitely is the obvious benefactor with these disparate devices: From an external hard drive that has a double layer of security and a USB fingerprint dongle that makes Windows log in a touch easier to computer eyeglasses which cut out the blue and a pen you can’t lose thanks to Bluetooth, these hardware picks make it clear your personal safety is designed to come first.
Keeping Your Data Doubly Safe with Pin Pad Log-on and Hardware Encryption
With no software or drivers required, iStorage’s diskAshur external hard or SSD drives all but scream data security. What’s not to like?. I just plugged in the integrated USB 3.1 cable into my laptop and was ready to backup my precious data. Well, almost ready.
First I had to create a 7 to 15 alphanumeric PIN on the topside keypad. Without your personal PIN – just like the one you use at an automated teller machine—there is no way to read or write your data. Only after tapping in the right PIN does the drive get recognized by the computer. And that is just the first indication of how security minded the diskAshur is.
