ioSafe Rugged Portable for important (or paranoid) people

ioSafe has launched its latest high-security portable drive, the ioSafe Rugged Portable.

The Rugged Portable is designed to keep your data secure when it's in transit from A to B, so would be perfect if you're a spy, or if you've just got a lot of "data" that you want to keep safe (we're talking the XXX: Drive).

With the device, you not only get the choice between 250GB and 1TB aluminium HDD options, or 256GB or 512GB titanium SSD ones, you also get "the industry’s best warranty" as well as ioSafe’s unique Data Recovery service which provides up to $5,000 towards the cost of third-party forensic data recovery services.

The drives are USB 3.0 compatible (with a FireWire version on the cards too) and can withstand some serious crushing - 1134KG with the aluminium version and double that if you go for a titanium one.

They are also waterproof for up to 3 days (salt water too) to a depth of up to 10m (titanium one) and are also protected from continuous exposure to UV, blowing sand, blowing dust, rain, salt fog, icing or freezing rain for up to 24 hours per military standard 810G Methods 505.4, 506.4, 509.4 and 510.

“This drive will make sure your data reaches its destination safely", said ioSafe CEO Robb Moore. “Whether you need to protect important business data during your daily commute or protect photos during your family vacation, the Rugged Portable will do it. The drive will keep data safe from everyday knocks and bumps associated with travel as well as from moisture, chemicals and extreme environmental and weather conditions”.

Prices start from $149.99 and the ioSafe Rugged Portable drives are available to pre-order now.
