SECURED AES USB drives offer several primary security features:
1. Hardware-Based AES Encryption: These drives use strong Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption algorithms to protect data stored on the drive, rendering it unreadable without the encryption key.
2. Authentication: Users must provide a PIN, password, or use biometric authentication (e.g., fingerprint) to access data on the drive.
3. Auto-Lock: They often have an auto-lock feature that triggers after a set period of inactivity, requiring reauthentication to access data.
4. Self-Destruction: Some drives have a self-destruct mechanism, erasing data after a specified number of failed login attempts.
5. Remote Management: Centralized management allows organizations to control and monitor drive access and settings.
6. Tamper-Evident Design: Physical protection against tampering or intrusion, such as epoxy sealing.
7. Secure Boot: Ensures that only trusted firmware and software are executed on the drive.
These features collectively provide robust security, protecting sensitive data even if the drive is lost or stolen.
