It’s always nice to think that we’re Ethan Hunt from Mission: Impossible, when we finish reading an important work document and long to hear: “This message will self-destruct in five seconds.” But in actuality, it seems we aren’t so far off from this scenario, which is where Imation and their IronKey Basic S1000 comes in. These ultra-secure flash drives range from 4GB ($139) all the way to 128GB ($849), but regardless of which storage size you decide upon, all come with an automatic self-destruct feature. This element will be activated if someone attempts to access your data without the correct password or if any physical tampering occurs. Furthermore, the IronKey is lightning-quick at 400MB/sec reading speed and 300MB/sec writing speed, as well as having all the latest hardware encryption technology.
With hackable gadgets and data leaks becoming an all-too-common problem nowadays, the need to protect sensitive data is more important than ever. With web hosts like 1&1 making security a priority by teaming up with online safety experts GeoTrust, e-stores are enabled to use industry standard 256-bit SSL encryption, to better safeguard credit and debit card numbers and login information.
