If you’re carrying unencrypted data around with you, then you should stop doing that. The consequences of losing data can range from embarrassing to damaging to potentially opening up your company to legal headaches.
But encrypting data on external drives used to be a pain. You had to run an application and sometimes that wouldn’t work on certain platforms, and it all would quickly turn into a big hassle.
But those days are over. A drive like the new Kingston IronKey Vault Privacy 80 SSD makes encrypting your data super easy.

What’s in the box
The SSD looks like any regular SSD, expect it has a screen. Actually, it’s a touchscreen, and you use this to input your passcode and also change the settings in the drive.
It really makes using the drive a snap. In fact, this is one of the easiest to use encrypted SSDs I’ve ever used. The setup took seconds — basically inputting my secret passcode — and it was ready for data.
Setup was quick and simple
XTS-AES 256-bit hardware encryption FIPS 197 certified Unique intuitive touchscreen Multi-password (admin/user) option with PIN and Passphrase modes Configurable password rules Dual read-only (write protected) modes for malware protection
