Verbatim is seizing this opportunity and has expanded its SSD ExpressCard range to include a hardware encrypted version: The SSD Secure ExpressCard. Our aim is to address the rapidly growing demand for secure portable storage solutions head-on with innovative products that come with the security aspect already integrated,” explains Hans-Christoph Kaiser, Business Development Manager Verbatim EUMEA.

Here’s the SSD Secure ExpressCard’s main features:

  • Premium AES 256-bit hardware encryption
  • Mandatory complex password input
  • Content of the drive automatically deleted after 10 incorrect password entries
  • The SSD Card can be completely inserted into the internal ExpressCard slot
  • Low power consumption – longer battery life for laptops and netbooks
  • Sturdy and shock resistant
  • Compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7

This secure little card will be hitting Europe sooner than later and retailing for about £90 ($150).
