SecureData is a worldwide leader in hardware encrypted storage and data 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.
In addition to their line of secure, wireless storage devices, SecureData offers a number of more traditional models like the SecureUSB KP. Available in capacities ranging from 4GB up to 128GB, this USB flash drive features a FIPS validated 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 SecureUSB KP is also equipped with a rugged, extruded aluminum casing that protects it against dust, water and physical damage as well as a USB 3.0 interface capable of delivering up to 152 MB/s read and 118 MB/s write speeds.
