Super Talent Technology (http://www.supertalent.com), a manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, has announced the new USB 3.0 SuperCrypt drive, which supports AES hardware encryption.
Available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities, this new drive supports USB 3.0 speeds of up to 240MB/second. Measuring 95 x 34 x 15.4 mm, the new SuperCrypt Drive requires no separate cable and is fully backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports, at USB 2.0 speeds. Super Talent offers two AES encryption options, both of which include the STT encryption utility for password control: the SuperCrypt drive features 128-bit ECB encryption, while the SuperCrypt Pro features 256-bit XTS encryption for very robust security.
The USB 3.0 SuperCrypt drive will be available later this month. Pricing hasn’t been announced.
