Patent pending technology puts Military Grade AES256 bit encryption at your fingertips. The only hardware encrypted drive with User authentication via DataLock app on any smartphone, tablet, wearable or similar mobile device (available for download at the app store Apple/Android). In addition to a completely OS and software free design to encrypt the data at rest the SecureDrive BT also allows for the easiest user experience to unlock the drive with a user created 7-15 digit alpha numeric pin or Apple Touch ID / Face recognition. All User data, PINs, Crypto Parameters and Encryption Keys are always encrypted while at rest. CERTIFIED SECURE WITH FIPS COMPLIANT DESIGN: Full disk hardware encryption is just a start of keeping your data completely safe should it ever get into the wrong hands. While the hardware design is impenetrable we don’t stop there, all user data and crypto parameters are encrypted as well. The SecureDrive BT contain an independent processor, crypto processor as well as other security components to create a unique and patent pending design. Every vital piece of electronics is covered with a tough epoxy coating cementing the critical components in an indistinguishable solid capsule. While this epoxy is effectively impossible to remove without destroying the independent components, it does not however affect the functionality of each component nor reduce the overall performance, it simply makes the electronics impossible to separate and reverse engineer. PRELOADED WITH ANTIVIRUS: Keep your SecureDrive BT virus free with a pre-loaded 1 year license for the USB Antivirus by ESET real-time Heuristic Scanning. Even if not connected to the internet the ESET engine will recognize malicious files based on a custom algorithm and deny saving them to the SecureDrive BT. Unlike desktop antivirus software the USB Antivirus is designed for mobile devices and does not require any installation on the host system.
