Encrypted Flash Drives: the Height of New Security

October 13, 2020

The next innovation in keeping data safe and secure has arrived, in the form of a secure USB flash drive you can unlock with your smartphone or smartwatch.


The iStorage datAshur BT is a high-quality flash drive, with a cap for the USB end and an IP57 rating against dust and water ingress up to 1 meter in depth. However, its ability to protect the user’s data goes much beyond a bit of dust and rain. 

First of all, the datAshur BT is fully encrypted using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption: FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant technology. That means its compliant for some of the most stringent regulators, including GDPR, HIPAA, SOX and CCPA. 

Even more impressive, however, is its decryption. All the data on the drive is only accessible via a 7-15-character password, or a biometric unlock using a secure Bluetooth connection from a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch. Biometric unlocking options include Face ID/Facial recognition, Touch ID/Fingerprint, or IRIS scanning.

The USB drive is also compatible for use with any operating system or hardware with a USB port, including laptops, computers, scanners and printers. 

The datAshur BT flash drive is available in several capacities, from 16GB to 128GB.
