A big thanks to the fab team at iStorage who sent us a laser etched iStorage datAshur Pro USB – a tamper, dust, water and even crush resistant USB flash drive.
The datAshur Pro has plug and play simplicity, and it’s totally compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome, Android, to name a few! Well done iStorage for this great feature!
In true secret agent style, simply tap in your personal 7-15 PIN code using the unique keypad. What’s good about this, you can not only have the main admin PIN but an individual user PIN too.
In less than a second after your PIN has been accepted, you’ll get the green light to show the superfast USB has been unlocked. It’s then ready to use. It has a timeout lock, and will automatically lock when unplugged.
This superfast datAshur Pro USB 3.0 has a military grade encryption. All data transferred is encrypted in real-time so you can rest assured that your documents are protected from unauthorised access, even if your datAshur Pro is lost or stolen.
The iStorage datAshur Pro also protects your data with a “Brute Force Hack Defence Mechanism”.
Guaranteed with a 3-year warranty, the datAshur Pro is an investment that will last for years. Its rugged, extruded aluminium, waterproof casing protects the drive against physical damage. The internal drive components are also sealed with a tamper-proof coating.
