Silicon Power offers flash drive with data encryption

The popular maker of computer memory and various peripherals Silicon Power has announced a new USB flash drive that comes with hardware data encryption. The drive is known as Secure G50 and offers 256-bit AES encryption, which ensures that no one that you haven’t authorized will read the data stored there. Working with this technology is easy – the owner of the drive has to enter just a password and this is it. If the password is typed incorrectly ten times, then the USB flash drive automatically formats itself and all data is lost.

On the outside the Secure G50 is not impressive – the USB flash drive comes housed in a plastic chassis that weighs just 9.2 grams. The device measures 53.9 x 20 x 10 mm and supports USB 3.0. There are several models with capacities of 8 GB, 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB so there’s a Secure G50 drive even for people who do not need that much storage space or want to save some money.

There’s no word on pricing as of now but the price also includes a 5-year limited warranty.
