Verbatim Secure USB Drive

Reports of lost or stolen data from businesses and government agencies have underscored the importance of guarding secret information whenever it leaves the office. The Corporate Secure USB drive from Verbatim not only bolsters this protection, but makes it mandatory: users are required to login to the drive to access any of the data, which is secured using 128-bit AES encryption. Owners and their employers can also rest easy knowing that brute-force attacks are much more difficult, as ten consecutive failed login attempts will lock the drive altogether. Its only limitation is the Windows 2000/XP operating system requirement. Capacities range from 1GB to 4GB, all of which will be shippin in the very near future.

    Sensitivity Limitations

    A USB stick with AES 128-bit encryption would be good enough for PROTECTED A and perhaps PROTECTED B data (256-bit prefered). It would be insufficient for SECRET. But on the whole excellent for the day to day work of most non-government people.
