How secure would you like your USB flash drive and its data to be? How about if it self-destructs (in the virtual sense) if tampered with? That’s the idea behind the new IronKey, a metallic flash drive available in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB storage capacities.
The IronKey offers on board hardware encryption which requires a password to unlock it. If someone attempts to tamper with it, the drive’s maker claims, “it will trigger a self-destruct sequence, ensuring data is kept confidential.” The drive itself is also secure, sporting a metal casing filled with epoxy to make it waterproof.
