    Avalon Technology Group (ATG), specialists in biometric data protection, announced the ATG 8GB USB Biometric 256 AES Speedster. This USB flash-drive features two close to fool-proof levels of data security. First, it's the fingerprint sensor that allows access only to one person with the right print. Second, the data is encrypted using 256-bit AES encryption algorithm, something which even government security agencies find hard to crack.

    The drive offers impressive 34 MB/s read and 20 MB/s write speeds with hi-speed USB 2.0. The metal casing provides water-proofing to its components, the drive slides open. It is priced at US $79.00 and offers 8 GB of space.

    I don't see this product on their website... the one Flash Drive that is there for $79.99 only has the Encryption, not biometric protection.

    And, what's with the company's site? Seems pretty "generic" for a company making cutting edge products.
