Corsair Padlock 2 - securing your data ...
Secure data and keeping data secure are two different things. Often when I am on the road I carry around sensitive materials stored on a USB flash drive. And though you can select several protections these days, they are all a bit unhandy, often software and OS based and thus you tend not to use it.
Now I am not alone in that, over the past year or two here in the Netherlands for example on several occasions news headlines informed us of actual military data or data from a Judge got found on the street and the latter one in a bus, unprotected. Literally somebody finds a USB flash drive checks it out and finds sensitive data. That is so wrong on many levels. It's the result modern flash storage really, carrying data on a USB flash drive is simply very handy and the storage units is just light to carry around, you pop it into the USB port and bingo you can access your data. But meanwhile chances of loosing the device increased significantly.
In the last twelve months we however have seen numerous ideas and developments to add a layer of security to flash storage, so that IF you should ever loose that storage unit, at the very least your data is protected. One that was recently released is from Corsair, their Corsair Padlock 2. While it's not intended as uber-fast storage device with blazing performance it's designed to keep your data more secure. It does this by adding a 256-bit hardware encryption layer over your data protected by a numeric key, a pin code which you can enter very conveniently on the storage device itself.
Well have a look and then let's head onwards into the review.
We review the Corsair Vengeance K70 cherry red mechanical keyboard. The K70 is the successor of the popular K60 but it adds some more features, is much more cool looking with full LED lit keys and has a trick or two encompassed in the new design as well. Let's have a peek shall we ?
Corsair Obsidian 350D review
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
