Hiddn Crypto Adapter makes encryption a snapYou must be pretty naive to store sensitive data on a portable device that could get lost or stolen, such as a USB flash drive or portable hard drive, but then again some of us out there tend to take gambles with our lives. Enter the Hiddn Crypto Adapter to rein in those daredevils – this device will play nice with just about any other USB mass storage device out there, but is also extremely robust in its security. Basically, it is an intermediary USB hardware peripheral that requires you to connect it to your computer and the storage device into it before any data transfer can happen. Accessing it requires you to insert a special key card and keying in your password to have it encrypted or decrypted (it uses FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL4+ certified Hiddn Crypto Module).
