Stop Data Theft with the Aegis Bio Drive

Aegis Bio
Data theft can be a real pain, especially if you have confidential details and personal identifiable information stored. Encryption is becoming more popular, but often relies on the PC being used to have encryption software installed to read the data. The Aegis portable bio hard drive is built to tackle this problem. The drive contains encryption software and you unlock it by scanning your thumb or finger print on to the sensor. The encryption is provided by UPEKs Digital ID which is a hardware engine capable of storing all 10 of your finger prints, or 10 separate peoples finger prints should you want more then one person to access the drive.

With having encryption on the drive it allows you to hook it up anywhere and unencrypt when you need the data on any PC. Also it gives piece of mind should it be stolen.

Another problem often found with portable hard drives is that they can get dropped and knocked around in pockets. The Aegis bio drive features a 16 point omni directional shock mounting system which allows the drive to be shaken, dropped and knocked around although I do not ever recommend making a habbit of this.

Three versions of the bio hard drive will be available which are the 80GB, 120GB and 160GB models which cost $199, $219 and $289. Although that seems a little higher then some drives you need to remember that full encryption is offered which is essential for those carrying around important data and well worth the money should it get in to the wrong hands.
