USB flash drives have made it easier for people to store and transfer files from one device to another. Although this can be considered a benefit, it may also have disadvantages. With USB flash drives, it can be easy for unwanted elements to steal sensitive data or spread malware. That can be the danger with using an unsecured USB flash drive nowadays. For those who take data security very seriously, there are USB Flash Drives like the Apricorn Aegis to keep data safe and secure.

The Apricorn Aegis Secure USB Flash Drive may look quite sophisticated compared to the usual flash drive. One that may easily catch one’s attention is that this USB flash drive has its own alphanumeric keypad. This is nice security feature that requires users to put in the right 7-15 digit PIN in order to gain access to the Flash drive contents. For further security, the flash drive comes with military grade Full-disk AES 265-bit CBC (Cipher-Block Chained) encryption that makes the data stored inside unreadable if one does not know the access PIN for the device.

The Apricorn Aegis Secure USB Flash Drive also comes with an emergency button that will reset all user and admin passwords used for the device and wipes the stored data clean. It is also built with a durable and waterproof aluminum casing. Its electronics are coated with a tough epoxy compound that can’t be removed without ever damaging the component that it coats. The Apricorn Aegis Secure USB Flash Drive can be a handy toll for corporate, government or military personnel who always carry sensitive information along with them as part of their job. This secure USB flash drive is available at Apricorn. The 16GB version retails for US$125. The 8GB version costs US$95 while an upcoming 4GB version will cost US$65.
