Aluratek announced the latest version of its tornado one-touch external hard drive that features a RFID security key and onboard data encryption. The drives can be had with storage capacity of up to 1TB with the lowest capacity 160GB.

The drives come in two different sizes -- 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch. Connectivity is via USB 2.0 and the drives are compatible with Windows and Mac computers. The drives ship with a pair of RFID security keys for an added layer of protection. The 160GB version of the external drive retails for $119 with the 1TB version going for $249.

"As consumers continue to embrace a truly digital lifestyle, keeping that digital content backed up and secure is becoming more important than ever," says Aluratek's John Wolikow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Our new RFID Security Key Encrypted Hard Drive backs up all of your important files and keeps them ultra-secure. A swipe of the RFID security key by the external hard drive encrypts the data so that it cannot be accessed without the unique RFID key swipe a second time to unlock it. Two RFID security keys ship with each external drive."
