Corsair Padlock 2 flash drive offers integrated numeric keypad and 256-bit AES encryption

Corsair introduced its new rugged Flash Padlock 2 secure USB flash drive, featuring 256-bit AES data encryption. The new flash drive is available in 8GB and uses two security technologies for data protection, a user-definable personal identification number – PIN, which you must enter to unlock the drive and access the data,  by using the drive’s integrated numeric keypad.

The Flash Padlock 2 also includes the ability to create a new PIN in the event the original PIN is lost, a procedure which securely erases the contents of the drive.
