LaCie Biometric Drive

LaCie have created a Biometric Drive which has some good encryption built in. It’s an external USB hard drive with a finger print scanner built in. The data is encrypted and it takes 3 succesful swipes of the same finger to allow unencrypted access to the drive. It’s a great idea because anything portable can go missing. The cost of the device is often not even a fraction of the value of what data is stored in it and loosing data can cause headaches because of not knowing who is looking at it.

The biometric reader is Triple DES enabled and is compatible with both the MAC and PC.

The verdict: If you need to feel secure with your data on the go, the LaCie SAFE Mobile USB Hard Drive will do just that, but with costly tradeoffs.
