LaCie SAFE Mobile HDD w/ Encryption

LaCie SAFE Mobile HDD w/ Encryption
 
 
Not all hard drives or flash drives that support finger print authentication actually encrypt the data stored on them. Many biometric drives merely use the finger print to log into the hard drive, leaving the actual data unprotected.

LaCie has a very attractive portable 80GB HDD that uses biometric fingerprint authentication to login and encrypts the data with either 56-bit DES or Triple 128-bit DES. Everything USB has a full review of the Porsche designed LaCie drive on their site.Review excerpt: "As sophisticated as bio-security may seem, the data inside is most likely not encrypted while only the fingerprints remain protected, leaving precious data vulnerable. LaCie has an answer - the Safe Mobile Hard Drive with Encryption, and the 'encryption' part is equally as crucial as the fingerprint authentication." Buy your own LaCie hard drive here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
