Corsair Padlock USB drive - with 4-digit PIN code

Posted on Wednesday, Jul 11 2007 @ 00:31 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Corsair is working on a new USB stick called the Padlock.

This USB stick offers users a very easy way to protect their data:
By using the buttons on the Padlock's outer shell, a user-defined PIN code has to be entered and validated in order to receive access to the data found on the NAND flash chip. The PIN code can be between 1 and 10 digits long. The Padlock security system is centered around the customizable PIN code and doesn't require any special software to be installed on the machine it is connected to. Also, the Padlock boasts a feature that will automatically lock the drive as soon as it is disconnected.
The Corsair Padlock will be available in 1GB and 2GB capacities later this quarter.
