Data Locker hardware encrypted drive reaches 1TB

Origin Storage is claiming to be the first vendor to launch a 1TB hard drive with built-in hardware encryption.

The Data Locker Secure Drive is a USB-powered external unit with a 2.5in SATA drive locked inside.

The device is ruggedised to protect against bumps and falls, and sports an LCD screen to provide status information. A six to 18 digit PIN is required to access or manage the drive.

One advantage of this is that nothing needs to be installed on the computer to which it is connected, as all security is handled by the device itself.

The Consumer and Pro editions use 128-bit AES encryption, while the Enterprise version bumps that up to 256-bit.

The Data Locker can also detect brute force attacks, according to Origin, and has a self-destruct mode for all data on the device, along with hardware-based malware detection.

The 1TB Pro version sells for a recommended retail price of £399 (A$697) excluding VAT.
