It is fairly common that we need to take our data with us. But what happens if the drive you use to transport the data falls into the wrong hands? Or maybe the elements are out to damage the drive. Today we’ll look at an option that keeps your data safe under many circumstances. Yes, there will be Amazon links provided so you can buy at the lowest possible prices and I do get a tiny commission if you buy something. No, I wasn’t provided with any other compensation for writing this.

iStorage diskAshur M2 IP68 CertifiedHard drives can be fragile. Using SSD drives takes out the mechanical parts of a hard drive and that alone can make it more rugged. The iStorage drive takes it one further with an IP68 ruggedness rating. What does that mean? It can survive being under 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. It can also withstand dust, sand and dirt. It will withstand a drop of 4 meters onto concrete and they even claim it can be run over by a 2.7 ton vehicle. Not sure I’d want to try that stuff, but let’s just say it is one tough drive.

Now that we know the drive can survive, let’s talk about how the data stored on it is protected by being seen by the wrong eyes. All of the encryption is on the drive itself so that the drive can be used by Windows, macOS, Linux, Chrome, Android and more. There is a keypad on the front of the drive that requires a PIN to be entered correctly to access the data.

There are different flavors of PIN that can be used. At the top of the stack is the Administrator. The Administrator can also create user accounts. Those accounts can even be set to be read only so the data isn’t overwritten. Lastly, a self-destruct PIN can be created. Should it be entered, all the data and pins will be deleted forever. The encryption ensures compliance with GDPR, HIPAA and CCPA among others.

Is this the fastest portable SSD drive available? No, it isn’t. But using USB 3.2, it can reach up to 370 MB/s read and write speeds. Overall, that’s still relatively fast. So if you are looking for a safe solution for your data, this is a drive you should seriously consider. It is available in the five sizes listed below.
