Feb 6, 2014

6 February 2014 ~ Data storage is an essential daily element and one device that most people still make use of is the USB or flash drive.  It’s small, convenient and allows users to save work or personal data efficiently on the fly. However, the one concern with USB storage is the security of your data – but now the Verbatim Secure ‘n’ Go Secure Data USB with hardware encryption is available from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC).

“USB drives feature a significantly small form factor which delivers convenience, allowing users to carry the device in a pocket, handbag or laptop bag. However, these devices are often lost and the security of the data saved to the device is usually an afterthought. Verbatim’s Secure ‘n’ Go ensures all data is encrypted, so if the drive be lost or stolen, vital information is safe and secure,” says Ruben Naicker, Verbatim Product Specialist at DCC.

Available in eight and 16 Gigabytes (GB), the Verbatim Secure ‘n’ Go delivers 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware security encryption, as well as integrated password protection. The USB features a password entry prompt when inserted into a desktop or notebook in order for the user to access the files and documents on the USB. Further bolstering security, the password hashing algorithm and hack-resistant password entry securely erases all data after 20 failed access attempts.

The Verbatim Secure ‘n’ Go features read speeds of up to 14 Megabytes per second (MB/s) and write speeds of up to 8MB/s, further enhancing performance. Certified for Windows 7, Windows 8, Vista and XP and featuring a USB2.0 interface, the USB can be used on almost any laptop or notebook.

“Data security is priority and with the Verbatim Secure ‘n’ Go users can rest assured that their data is safe should the device be lost or stolen,” says Naicker.
