Some are free, some are inexpensive, and some are pricey, but all make it easy to keep your files safe from thieving eyes Here’s a mixed bag of hardware products and software tools which I can recommend after a few weeks of hands-on testing.
Datalocker’s Unique USB Flash Drive Comes Armed with Keypad and Display
Security experts always advise us to copy or move sensitive data to external drives or the cloud. But even when you are not making a backup, saving confidential files to an external drive, be it a portable hard drive or a USB flash drive, is essential.
But flash drives without some level of encryption are still as vulnerable to intrusion as logging on to a public Wi-Fi network at a coffee shop. Enter Datalocker’s Sentry K300–an encrypted micro SSD drive with an onboard keypad. Available in a range of capacities from 8GB to 256GB, these are the first USB flash drives with not only a 12 button keypad but an actual OLED display screen, all packed into a finger-size unit.
