Military-Grade Encrypted Flash Drive


"So much encryption built in,


it surpasses U.S. Military standards."


"If it detects a hack attempt, it literally self-destructs."


If you're the type who forgets passwords and whatnot,


perhaps you'd better not take the plunge.

I was wondering of the statement: "military grade"... Does anybody know if Ironkey's products have some kind of an official "security certificate" from the Army? Does any of SanDisk's Secure USB drive have such a certification? I am currently using Cruzer Enterprise.

I remember paying over 60 bucks for my first PNY of 1GB in 2004. OMG..I am reminiscing about things only 4 years ago...AHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

It is also true that in the business world, more companies are banning portable drives than ever.

This is great, except for the fact that all removable storage media with the exception of cd-roms have been banned on military computers.

Some jackass introduced a virus via a flash drive. You can't even plug a camera in to a computer without it shutting down. It's really really stupid.

I use an Ironkey and it is terrific. As soon as you pick it up it's apparent that it's much more solid and less fragile than typical flash drives. The electronics are embedded in plastic so it's waterproof. But, like you said, be sure to remember your password.
