Secure and portable Harddrive
Subject: Storage | July 31, 2006 - 04:04 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
The Hardware Zone looks at the GStor Secure Mobile Storage solution. While it looks like a normal HDD enclosure, by using the GStor security key, you get 64bit, on-the-fly encryption. There is a big warning, though the security key slot looks like a Firewire slot, it isn't! Plugging a normal firewire cord into it may damage the enclosure, your PC, or both.
"Excelstor's latest external storage drive is more than just a portable hard drive. The GStor Secure
Mobile Storage device comes with hardware-level encryption that secures your data from unauthorized
access, so much so that the drive is rendered unusable without the proper authentication."
