If you’ve one of the technological elite who has already put down some money for a system with USB 3.0 ports…memory and storage maker Super Talent has a thumb drive they’d like you to consider. The Super Talent USB 3.0 SuperCrypt drive delivers all the performance of a USB 3.0 connection with AES hardware encryption so your data is always secure. And with capacities up to 256 GB, they might take a while to fill up even over a USB 3.0 connection.
“[SuperCrypt] is the perfect blend of security, performance and value and underscores Super Talent’s commitment and leadership in the USB 3.0 market,” said Super Talent COO C.H. Lee, in a statement.
The USB 3.0 SuperCrypt offers data transfer rates up to 240MB/s, and is backward compatible with USB 2.0 systems so it can be used like an everyday thumb drive in cases where folks haven’t upgraded their systems to be as spiffy as yours. The basic SuperCrypt drive uses 128-bit ECB encryption to protect data, but folks in government or sensitive industries—or who just want bragging rights—and step up to the SuperCrypt Pro, which uses 256-bit XTS encryption for even fiercer protection of your data in the event your drive is ever lost or stolen.
Super Talent hasn’t announced any pricing, but the USB 3.0 SuperCrypt and SuperCrypt Pro should be available from retailers this month in 16, 32, 64, 128, and 256 GB capacities.
