hardware encryption method known as 256-bit AES that was approved by
NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in 2001.
Aleratec's PortaStor Secure USB flash drives are available in four sizes

managed without any additional software installation required. The
management application is stored right on the PortaStor drive. For the
