Corsair Introduces Flash Padlock Secure USB 2.0 Drives

Corsair today launched the "Flash Padlock” family of affordable USB 2.0 drives, the safest way to secure your data while on the go. Priced starting at only $29.99, the Flash Padlock line of affordable USB 2.0 flash drives address the need for secure data storage through hardware technology, rather than software. Flash Padlock features "Auto-Locking," so the user doesn’t need to remember to enable the protective feature - It will automatically lock and protect itself after removal from the computer.


With its simple touch-pad security PIN entry system, Flash Padlock can be unlocked quickly and confidentially for use as a standard USB flash data drive. Flash Padlock is impervious to “brute force” hacks or keystroke loggers that would defeat a software secured USB flash drive.

Flash Padlock is immediately available in two capacities:
  • Flash Padlock 1GB ~ $29.99 USD MSRP
  • Flash Padlock 2GB ~ $39.99 USD MSRP
Flash Padlock Security Features Include:
  • Hardware-Enabled Auto-Lock Function: Device Auto-Locks in 15 seconds after removal from computer.
  • User Customizable Security PIN - User sets unique security PIN (up to 10 digits long) for unlocking device.
  • Platform Independent: Works on Windows, MAC and Linux platforms without the use of additional software.
  • Easy to Use: Direct keypad access and indicator lights make locking/unlocking simple and understandable.
“The Corsair Flash Padlock is one of the most secure USB flash drive solutions on the market today,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Marketing at Corsair. “Corsair has built the Flash Padlock specifically for those customers with concerns about inadequate software-based security solutions on a USB flash drive. The designed hardware security feature puts these concerns to rest,” continued Peterson.
Corsair Flash Padlock 1GB and 2GB products are available immediately through Corsair’s authorized distributors and resellers world-wide, priced at $29.99 USD MSRP and $39.99 USD MSRP respectively. Corsair Flash Padlock products are backed by a 3-year Limited Warranty. In addition, a PIN registration service and complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and TS Xpress are also available.Source: Corsair

I think this it's a great idea - presumably you don't need to install any software to access data, unlike other "secure" drives.

I do carry some semi-sensitive data on my USB key - it would suck to lose it.
