Aegis Bio hard drive relies on biometrics

aegis-bio.jpgHow many of us actually secure the data located on our portable hard drives? The answer would be very few, since we exhibit the “it won’t happen to me” attitude most of the time. For those who know how important it is to keep our private information away from prying eyes, there is the Aegis Bio external hard drive that comes with biometric authentication, thanks to the integration of UPEK’s Digital ID Hardware Engine that stores and recognizes up to ten different fingerprint profiles, ensuring the average thief won’t be able to access your collection of porn data should it fall into the wrong hands.

Features of the Aegis Bio include real-time 128-bit AES hardware encryption and a 16-point omni-directional shock mounting system that maintains drive integrity despite accidental drops and knocks. The Aegis Bio will come in 80GB, 120GB, and 160GB capacities which retail for $199, $219, and $289 respectively. Each purchase comes with a 3-year limited warranty.
