Keeping your data secure is more important than ever and using the tools at hand to do that can only be beneficial. Of course, the typical safeguards are still in play, use strong passwords, use unique passwords, don’t share credentials, and use a VPN. But there are other methods to secure your data and the SecureDrive BT is one of those methods.
The SecureDrive BT claims it eliminates data leaks while keeping your digital files safe. This piece of hardware has military-grade AES 256-bit XTS encryption paired with wireless authentication that is accessed through your mobile device. The company says the drive is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated and can be remotely wiped from anywhere in the world if your device becomes lost or stolen.
The SecureDrive BT is remote management (RM) ready through a separate subscription that can be added at any time after purchase. RM allows an admin to manage drive access remotely to view users, enable geofencing and time-fencing, and perform a remote password reset. All of these features are performed software-free through a web portal.
The SecureDrive BT has the following features and specifications:
- 12.5mm (1TB & 2TB HDD) , (256GB-8TB SSD)
