Unlike software encryption, hardware encryption on secure USB drives is automatic, always on, can not be disabled because there is a crypto processor built inside the device. When the user reconnects the device they can access their data by entering the complex password. Because the hardware encryption process is handled automatically, there is no risk of user error or data corruption.
To simply secure your data, DataLocker uses military-grade AES 256-bit hardware encryption for all DataLocker secure USB flash drives. Utilizing hardware encrypted DataLocker drives will not only save you from potential vulnerabilities of software encryption, but also protect your data against brute-force attacks, ransomware, cold boot attacks, and other malware.
