A FIRM CALLED Ironkey has entered the UK market through a channel deal with Simms International.
Originally funded by the US government, and if you can’t trust them who can you trust, the vendor makes what it claims is the most secure USB flash drive in the world.
In this crazy world of data leakage where ubiquitous flash has everyone in a tizzy about who’s carrying what info where, this gadget uses AES encryption, has duel channel SLC Nand flash, PKI and a crypto chip.
It’s even got a self destruct function which activates if it is being attacked or if you type in the wrong password ten times in a row. It’s got a file manager and firefox built in if you are the type that wants to surf privately. And it’s full of resin so it’s heavy and therefore feels expensive.
It looks quite, er, flash. µ
