Those into physically locking sensitive data away, and with a steampunk device at that, should look no further than the Cryptex USB Flash Drive. This two piece device consists of a USB flash drive and a metal lock that fits over the drive.
The metal locking canister uses a physical 5-digit combination set by the user to deny access.
The Data Traveler Locker uses hardware encryption and a password set by the owner to prevent access to the data stored on the USB drive. It doesn’t sound hardcore but the drive reformats after 10 failed password entries. Better remember the password once you set it.
The Corsair Padlock2 is a flash drive that uses both 256-bit hardware AES encryption and a physical lock to keep your data safe. The physical lock uses a 4 - 10 digit PIN that’s required to lock and unlock the USB drive.
After five failed attempts to get through the PIN the device locks up for two minutes.
Those wanting the best security for sensitive data will appreciate the military grade hardware encryption used in the Apricorn Aegis Key. The 7 - 15 digit PIN keeps everyone but the owner away from the files on this USB drive.
The protection provided by this solution is also physical as the Aegis Key is dust and water resistant.
Those with more modest security concerns will appreciate the physical combination lock used by the Digital Innovations SecurityDr DataGuard. It locks any standard USB flash drive (not included) to keep the data away from prying eyes.
