Lok-It Secure Flash Drive: No Pin, No in

by Lambert Varias

…or something like that. The point is, this flash drive is as secure as Maid Marian’s chastity belt. Other password-protected flash drives use software for authentication. Anyone who’s watched a Hollywood flick that involves computers knows that software can be easily hacked just by furiously typing on the keyboard until the big-ass “ACCESS DENIED” in bright red is replaced by an equally big-ass green “ACCESS GRANTED” on the computer screen. In other words, software can be hacked. That’s why, aside from using 256-bit AES hardware encryption, Lok-It’s flash drives have hardware authentication.

Users must enter the correct PIN by using the keypad on the flash disk before they can access the data within the flash drive. Without the correct PIN, a computer won’t even recognize that the flash drive is attached to it. The flash drive also automatically locks when it’s removed from a USB port. Since the Lok-It flash drive doesn’t rely on software for encryption, it’s compatible with most operating systems.

The guys at Lok-It sure know how to project security. I got absolutely nothing from that man’s presentation; his delivery was stealthy and possibly even spoken in an alien language. Check out Lok-It’s website for more information or if you want to order their flash drives.
