SecureData is a worldwide leader in hardware encrypted storage and data services. Founded in California, USA in 2007, this privately held company pioneered many of the data recovery techniques currently used throughout the industry before expanding into e-discovery and forensics services. Today, the company offers a range of high-level data protection capabilities including hardware encrypted portable data storage devices, backup solutions, file repair software, data recovery and digital forensics services to help clients achieve their security objectives.
One of the latest additions to SecureData's line of encrypted data storage devices is the SecureDrive BT. This portable drive is available with either a hard drive or an SSD and features a compact FIPS compliant design, super-fast USB 3.0 interface and military grade full disk 256-bit AES hardware encryption. What really makes the SecureDrive BT unique, though, is that it offers secure wireless user authentication via the DataLock app on your mobile device. The device is also remote management ready with geo- and time-fencing, remote wipe by admin, and unique unlock features including two-factor authentication, password recovery and more.
The SecureDrive BT SSD is available in capacities ranging from 250GB up to 8TB. For this review, SecureData sent us the 1TB version of the drive which is capable of delivering up to 355 MB/s sequential read and 333 MB/s sequential write speeds.
