    RunCore, leading supplier of high-performance solid-state drives, announces the global launch of their Xapear Solid State Disc drive. RunCore's Xapear is a smart USB 2.0 connected SSD solution with RFID protection, allowing you to split your data into a freely accessible partition, and a hidden partition that only becomes accessible by applying a special RFID key to your SSD. Furthermore, the Xapear offers remote data destruction by simply sending an SMS over your GSM from your mobile device to the integrated GSM receiver, which then will immediately start overwriting all your data and thereby deleting all previous content. After successful data elimination the SSD's GSM will send a confirmation SMS to your mobile.

    The Xapear comes with two RFID keys, that will be initialized by the users themselves. After this initialization users can use a "public" and a "hidden" partition and define their respective sizes. In regular use the "hidden" partition cannot be detected by others, only once the RFID key is being swiped over the Xapear SSD itself will the "hidden" partition appear. After another swipe this partition will disappear again.

    GSM communication is provided for by an integrated SIM card. User then can link this SIM card one specified and self-defined mobile phone. Only this pre-defined mobile phone will be able to detect drive access. Furthermore, the mobile phone can remotely send a data deletion command to the drive, telling it to overwrite all data, rendering it impossible to recover previous data.

    With this device data protection is entering an entirely new stage of security, which is particularly important in an ever more mobile environment where sensitive data and information are frequently being carried along, making it a potential risk to being used by unauthorized 3rd parties. With the RunCore Xapear you now have a highly advanced data protection solution for most demanding professional usage which is also suited for the private sector where data security is becoming an ever more important concern.

    They're just stating the obvious. I'm sure that organized crime bosses and foreign spies will love it, too.

    Maybe organised crime bosses, as for spies - maybe, but i thought spies like to carry around much smaller devices - such as a small micro SD or something smaller disguised as a small brooch or earing or whatever everyday thing that is least likely to rouse suspicions if caught

    Micro SD hidden in the heel of a shoe perhaps?? James Bond kind of BS

    Wouldn't be a problem had privacy not suddenly become a privilege and not a right.

    Finally I can start moving my nuclear launch codes around with me and not worry about data being compromised.
