With so many uses, you may want more than one.
Keep personal files and confidential data restricted from hackers and thieves with AES 256-bit encryption that meets all industry standards, including Microsoft*reg; eDrive, IEEE-1667, and TCG Opal 2.0.
Integrated Power Loss Immunity
Avoid data loss during power outages. This built-in feature of our NAND protects your data swiftly and efficiently, protecting your work if your system unexpectedly shuts down.
Exclusive Data Defense
Prevent corruption in your photos, music, videos, and other files with layers of error correction and adaptive read technology.
Redundant Array of Independent NAND
Protect your data at the component level with an SSD that automatically provides parity protection. This high-end feature works much like RAID works with multiple hard drives, maintaining the integrity of your data.
Unlike hard drives, SSDs don’t have moving parts that wear out over time, which makes them less likely to crash. SSDs are also better equipped to survive physical trauma, like getting dropped, because they don’t rely on mechanical parts.
