The interface is pretty ugly but the Addonics CipherUSB is incredibly easy to use and is effective at folder level and disk level encryption. With the dongle on your machine you can encrypt internal and external disks which can then only be accessed when a similarly set up dongle and a password if you selected the option to require one. It uses AES256 ECB or CBC encryption, the standard when it comes to encryption and setup and usage are incredibly easy though there are a few minor flaws on the CipherUSB. Head over to Techgage for the review and a great overview of encryption in general.
"As important as data encryption can be for the home user, it’s even more imperative in the enterprise. The problem? The most effective measures are usually cast aside in lieu of something a little easier to deal with. With the CipherUSB, Addonics hopes to bring “simple” and “most effective” together as one. Does it succeed?"
