Available with either a hard drive or an SSD in capacities ranging from 250GB up to a massive 8TB, this portable drive features a FIPS compliant design with military-grade AES 256-bit XTS encryption. Instead of an app on a mobile device though, the data on the drive is unlocked when a user enters their PIN via its onboard keypad. The SecureDrive KP is also equipped with a durable aluminum casing as well as a super-fast USB 3.0 interface capable of delivering up to 292 MB/s read and 299 MB/s write speeds.
