LaCie, veterans in the portable storage field, have today unveiled their Rugged Safe external hard drive range. Not content with shock-proofing your precious digital files with military grade exterior rubber shielding, it also offers 128-bit AES hardware encryption. That, in layman’s terms, means it’s safe from cyber-crooks to the same standards as used by the government.
And as if that wasn’t enough, it’s also got a fingerprint scanner to lock your sensitive documents away from prying eyes, with support for ten separate user’s fingerprint profiles.
“The LaCie Rugged Safe was developed to enable professional or private users to protect their valuable data and intellectual property from theft and unauthorised access,” said Erwan Girard, LaCie Business Unit manager. “We’ve synthesised a range of technologies to ensure this device is the safest and most mobile storage solution – a real vault for your data.”
Compatible with either Macs or PCs, it’s powered by either a Firewire or USB connection. The LaCie Rugged Safe comes in two sizes, 500GB or 1TB, with prices starting at £169.
