Over the last year or so, I've had the pleasure of reviewing SecureData's hardware encrypted SecureDrive BT portable SSD as well as their keypad-equipped SecureUSB KP flash drive. The company has now given me the opportunity to review its other encrypted flash drive, the SecureUSB BT. Available in capacities ranging from 4GB up to 128GB, this pocket-sized storage device features a FIPS compliant design with military-grade AES 256-bit XTS encryption. What really makes SecureDrive BT stand out amongst other encrypted USB flash drives is that, instead of a keypad, it offers secure wireless user authentication via the SecureData Lock app on your mobile device. The drive is also equipped with a rugged, extruded aluminum sleeve that protects it against dust, water and physical damage as well as a USB 3.0 interface capable of delivering up to 130 MB/s read and 43 MB/s write speeds.
With specs and features like this, it's hard not to be impressed by the SecureUSB BT. However, as you all know by now, we're not ones to take things at face value. In this review, we'll take a closer look at SecureData's encrypted USB flash drive and then put it through its paces to see how well it performs. Does the SecureUSB BT have what it takes?
